Local Campaign Group Calls For Better Biodiversity In Wicklow

A local campaign group has said something needs to be done to improve the levels of biodiversity in Wicklow.

It's after the European Parliament approved Nature Restoration Laws  which farming organisations have opposed, citing claims they need to be properly compensated.

All Irish MEPs voted to accept the law except for Luke Ming Flanagan and Chris MacManus from the Left group. 

After a final sign off by the European Council in March, Member states will have two years in which to draft their national restoration plans and lay out how they reach the targets proposed in the law.

Chair of Rewild Wicklow Danny Alvey says time is of the essence to implement change.
