Mary is proud to support legislation that will protect our biodiversity. The Wildlife Amendment Bill allows for a review of blanket bog natural heritage areas, puts the national biodiversity action plan on a statutory footing, and places a biodiversity duty on public bodies.

Biodiversity serves as a foundation for countless ecosystem services, including pollination, water purification, and climate regulation, which are essential to human well-being and survival. By fostering a collective commitment to protecting our biodiversity, we can not only safeguard the delicate balance of our ecosystems but also secure a sustainable and harmonious future for all life forms.
