As the UK prepares to leave the EU, todays vote is more important than ever if you wish to protect your environment.
The EU did quite a bit for the environment and a number of species that live here in the UK are protected under EU law such as; bats, otters and great crested newts. I want our environment to still have the same protection after we leave Brexit.
I wish to live in country with no pesticides that kill our bees, a place where birds of prey can soar free in the sky and where foxes and badgers can roam without fear of man or hound.
I don’t want fracking, wasteful plastics and a polluted environment.
I want more wild spaces, wildflower meadows and greener energies.
I know that the environment is not high on some peoples agenda today but it is extremely important to me, so today I did my little bit for the environment and I shall now leave you with a Native American proverb:
When the last tree is cut down,
the last fish eaten,
and the last stream poisioned.
You will then realise that you can not eat money.
