WHEN Monmouth Assembly Member Nick Ramsay received a request from a cute furry animal asking him to back his campaign to help native wildlife, he had no hesitation in signing up!
While Bob may be just one small red squirrel, his ambitions to put nature at the forefront of the political agenda are huge.
Speaking today, Nick said:
“I am delighted to add my name to the thousands of people who have voted to back Bob’s campaign. Statistics show that sadly our wildlife is under threat and we need to do all we can to give it a helping hand.
Nick has also signed a pledge to promote the Woodland Trust’s campaign to create new native woods and trees in Monmouthshire.
“There is no doubt that our trees and woodlands are under pressure, “he said. “Creating new woods and planting more trees must be a priority if we are to tackle challenges such as climate change and wildlife loss as well as shaping places where we want to live, work and spend our leisure time.
“If I am re-elected in the forthcoming election, I will be championing tree planting as set out in Wales is Better with Trees” in the Assembly and talking to constituents about how more trees cam improve our surroundings and quality of life.”
