DECLINE IN BRITAIN'S MOTH POPULATION

That this House welcomes the publication of The State of Britain's Larger Moths 2013, produced by Butterfly Conservation and Rothamsted Research; notes that Britain's moth population has declined seriously in the last 40 years, with over 60 species becoming extinct since 1900; recognises that the findings have serious implications for biodiversity, moths facilitating the pollination of many plants, constituting food for many animals, and acting as indicators of the impact of habitat loss, land-use intensification and global warming; and calls on the Government to ensure that steps are taken by all relevant departments and agencies to reverse the declines highlighted by the report and that funding is found to support concerted action for threatened moths especially those listed in section 41 of the Natural Environment and Rural Communities Act 2006, and to ensure continuation of Rothamsted Research's long-running data collection on the moth population in the UK.
