Our focus is on the illegal persecution of raptors that is closely associated with the game-shooting industry. However, exceptional circumstances have prompted us to post this blog entry.
The badger cull in parts of south-west England is imminent, if it hasn’t already started (see here). It is a government-sanctioned cull of a protected species for spurious, non-scientific reasons. Sound familiar?
This blog entry is to show our support for the hundreds of activists who have been, and still are, doing their utmost to prevent this cull from happening.
If you can’t make it to the badger kill-zones but you want to show your support for those activists you can:
1. Sign the e-petition (well over a quarter of a million people already have) – sign it here.
2. Contribute to the activists’ wish-list of equipment to help them in the field – the cheapest item is about £3 for a pack of rechargeable batteries. View their wish-list (and buy them something) here.
For more info about the whole disgraceful issue, read the ‘Stop the Cull’ website here.
Good luck and thank you to all those activists on the ground tonight and over the following six week cull period.
