Mark Tami MP Backs Bob

Mark Tami, Member of Parliament for Alyn & Deeside has backed Bob, a red squirrel who has publicly launched his campaign to get nature on the public agenda.

Mark Tami MP said “I am delighted to support this campaign and I have always have been a strong supporter of wildlife issues and anything I can do to help highlight the plight of wildlife in this country and elsewhere I will.”

Speaking from outside the Houses of Parliament, Bob said: “I’m just a humble red squirrel, but I’m here to represent all our native wildlife.

“I launched this campaign is to show politicians how much we all care about nature, and I’ve been bowled over by the response. Our wildlife is in trouble – 60% of species in this country are in decline. Nature needs to be on the political agenda, and I believe politicians have the power to make a difference.”

Bob’s fans, affectionately known as the ‘Bob Squad’ have jumped on board his campaign, putting posters up around the country, taking tree-hugger selfies, sharing their creative campaign images and videos and spreading the word in their communities.

Bob has the support of wildlife groups like the RSPB, Buglife and Butterfly Conservation.
