Meg supports Living Landscape Scheme

Wednesday, November 5, 2008

Heeley MP Meg Munn pledged her support to the Wildlife Trust’s current campaign ‘Living Landscape’ - which aims to help wildlife cope with the effects of climate change and to rebuild ecologically robust, wildlife-rich landscapes across large areas of town and countryside.

 

Meg met with Nigel Doar, Chief Executive of the Sheffield Wildlife Trust as well as the Trust’s Youth Engagement Manager, Jonathan Turner, and active member of the Gleadless Valley Wildlife Trust, William Fairhead, on a walk about in the woods in Gleadless Valley to see for herself some of the Trust’s work in her constituency.

 

The effects of climate change will result in many plants and animals needing to move or adapt to conditions, and it will place huge pressures on small populations of wildlife in isolated patches of natural land. This scheme aims to facilitate this process by enlarging specially protected areas, joining them up and ‘greening’ the places that are more hostile to plants and animals such as urban areas.

 

Meg said:

 

‘Sheffield has a reputation as the ‘greenest’ city in England and the work the Trust helps to keep it that way and also enhances it. Climate change is one of the biggest threats to our world and by managing our green spaces better we can also manage the effects of climate change on our environment better.

 

I fully support the work the Trust does and support the government’s Climate Change Bill which will legislate to put climate change adaptation on the agenda of government action.’

 

Michael Allen, Chair of The Wildlife Trusts commented:

 

‘We very much welcome the support of parliamentarians for our Living Landscape vision. If we are to help our wildlife survive, we must also ensure that government policies that impact on land management and land use are fit for purpose. We urge the government to ensure that the new Climate Change Act will be a focus for that to happen.’
