Motion text

That this House has considered in full the contents of the WWF Living Planet Report 2016 and recognises the significant threat presented to the natural world through a 58 per cent decline in the recorded global populations of fish, birds, mammals and amphibians from 1970 to 2012; believes that without continued political intervention, improved corporate responsibility and individual passion, the world risks the loss of two thirds of all wildlife by 2020; welcomes government action to protect marine habitats by establishing blue zone conservation areas in ecologically diverse territories; calls on the Government to play a constructive role in the forthcoming Conference of the Parties by encouraging greater international collaboration to tackle the effects of climate change, habitat loss and degradation, species over-exploitation, pollution and animal diseases; and further calls on the Government to use its influence as a global leader in environmental sustainability to assist less economically developed nations to achieve the Nagoya UN biodiversity obligations and build a resilient global ecology for the sake of future generations.
