The RSPB has today weighed in to the Tory leadership contest saying that the anti-regulation rhetoric that has characterised the debates is nonsense when it comes to protecting nature.

The national wildlife charity has today revealed four recent examples where nature is under direct threat from potential changes to legislation and the bodies that enforce legislation:

Beccy Speight, chief executive of the RSPB, said: “Strong laws and properly supported agencies are vital to safeguard the precious wildlife we have left in the UK, and both need to be reinforced not weakened. This rhetoric, if it becomes policy, has the potential to completely undermine the Government’s own stated environmental ambitions for nature at a time when we need urgent action to keep our loved common species common and prevent more of our wildlife from being pushed to the brink of extinction.”
