European Parliament votes yes to nature restoration law!

It’s a YES!
The European Parliament today adopted its position on the EU nature restoration law with 336 votes in favor, 300 against and 13 abstentions.
This means the EU Parliament supports the Commission’s proposal to put restoration measures in place by 2030, covering at least 20% of all land and sea areas in the EU.
Members of the European Parliament underline that restoring the ecosystem is key to combating climate change and biodiversity loss, and reduces risks to food security.
The parliament highlights that the new law must contribute to reaching the EU’s international commitments, in particular the UN Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity framework.
Today’s voting result means the parliament is now ready to start negotiations with the European Council on the final shape of the legislation.

          I really cannot understand why so many MEPs voted against it... They were really like "Choosing to act for a better and liveable future? Nope. I'm against it. I want all to die"

            It's good to conserve nature and it's encouraging that majority of this parliament stood by it.

                That's great news! We need to take action now to protect and restore natural habitats and biodiversity for future generations. Let's continue to support legislation ensuring nature is protected!
