Catherine Bearder MEP reconvenes MEPs4Wildlife Group

Catherine Bearder MEP, has today reconvened the cross-party interest group MEPs4Wildlife in an effort to continue putting pressure on the European Union to take action to tackle wildlife crime.

The group brings together MEPs from across the political spectrum who are passionate about ending wildlife crime both within the European Union and further afield. The members of MEPs4Wildlife for the new parliamentary term are:

• Catherine Bearder (Renew Europe)
• Eleonora Evi (Non-attached)
• Theresa Griffin (S&D)
• Jytte Guteland (S&D)
• Anja Hazekamp (GUE/NGL)
• Grace O’Sullivan (Greens/EFA)
• Sirpa Pietikäinen (EPP)
• Hilde Vautmans (Renew Europe)
• Michal Wiezik (EPP)

Commenting on the group’s relaunch, Catherine Bearder said:
“I am delighted to reconvene MEPs4Wildlife for the new parliamentary term. Since I first set up the group in 2015, MEPs4Wildlife has lobbied the Commission and national governments on a variety of issues, from working on the EU Action Plan against Wildlife Trafficking, to banning the sale of ivory in the EU, to increasing resources to Europol to enforce environmental laws, to ending the unsustainable trapping of night monkeys in Colombia. I hope that in the new term we will be equally as active, particularly as the EU Action Plan against Wildlife Trafficking is set for renewal next year.”
