TIM Farron is one of 26 MPs who has signed up to the RSPB’s new campaign putting nature at the heart of the political agenda.
The ‘Vote for Bob’ campaign seeks to raise the issue of disappearing wildlife – for instance, since 1977 house sparrow populations have declined by 64 per cent and the number of hedgehogs has halved.
It also highlights the decline in natural habitats – the majority of flower-filled meadowland has been lost, taking bees and many insects with it.
