• Dog fouling
    It's very dangerous for everyone specially for children. Children's can fall into it. I think the council needs to buy and put cameras up in the area to catch them dog owners for not picking up there dog mess.

  • Save our Swifts
    Swifts numbers have declined across the UK by 53% between 1995 and 2016. By incorporating a Swift brick in all new houses we can save these beautiful birds. On fine summer evenings Swifts gather in "low flying screaming parties" as they chase each other around the buildings where they nest. Because they rely on eating insects, Swifts can only live in the UK for a short period in summer when insects are plentiful. Swifts migrate south to Africa in August and return to us in the following May. Let's make sure we continue to have Swifts every summer. Photo: Action for Swifts - Model S swift box

  • Button's Law Bitterant needed in antifreeze
    Antifreeze is a commonly used product in cars, especially in the winter; unfortunately it also has a very sweet smell that attracts cats, dogs and wildlife, if this is ingested it causes organ failure and certain death. I have in the past 5 years lost 6 cats to Ethylene Glycol which is a compound found in Antifreeze, coolant and windscreen wash. There needs to be some legislation put into place to have a Bitterant added so it will act as a deterrent to domestic and wild animals. Anyone who owns a cat or dog and has lost them to such a tragic and painful death will understand just how heartbreaking it is to watch happen, knowing there is nothing they can do beyond having their beloved pet humanely euthanized. In turn any wild animal such as foxes or badgers that ingest a carcass that has been infected with such a chemical, is also at risk of dying in the same way; which leads to a vicious cycle.

  • Cheshire Police - Prosecute Illegal Hunters!
    Hunting wild animals with dogs is a cruel blood sport and has no place in a civilized society. Terrified animals are chased for miles then ripped apart by a pack of dogs, this is regularly happening in Cheshire. Cheshire Constabulary has never successfully prosecuted anyone for illegal hunting. Cheshire Constabulary has passed a file to the Crown Prosecution Service only once in the last three years.

  • For the sake of Nature and People... protect our street trees now!
    We are losing our street/urban trees at an alarming rate. Yet these trees are vitally important to making our urban spaces pleasant and tolerable. Trees in our urban communities have a number of environmental, social and ecological benefits: * Are vital for improving air quality by the production of oxygen and the absorbtion of air pollution. * Controls flooding by intercepting and soaking up rainfall. * Contribute to reducing climate change. * Helping to reduce noise pollution. * Provides vital food and habitat for our struggling wildlife. * Provide shade and cooling during summer heat waves. We understand that local government is under great financial pressure so we need to send a message to our Councillors that our street/urban trees are a priority for local people.

  • St Johnstone FC: Ditch single use plastic
    By 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in our seas. But Scottish Premiership football clubs still give out thousands of single use plastic items every single matchday. Plastic cups, straws, stirrers, bags, they all end up clogging up our oceans and filling landfills. Football supporters shouldn't be forced to contribute to plastic pollution, just because they want a drink or some food at a match.

  • Ban the import of hunting trophies
    Every year hundreds of hunting trophies, including dismembered parts from elephants, rhinos, lions, hippos, and even baboons, are being imported into the UK. In total more than 5,000 trophies from threatened species have been imported by British hunters since the turn of the century. People pay huge sums to kill these magestic, threatened animals abroad - all so they can bring their bodyparts home and mount them on their wall or display them in their cabinets. But the Environment Minister Theresa Villiers has the power to stop this. She simply has to instruct her officials to stop issuing the permits that allow hunting trophies from threatened species to be brought to the UK. Stopping these imports would be a huge first step towards ending the hunting of these magnificent animals for sport but Theresa Villiers will only act if she knows the public want this cruel practice to end.

  • Clearcast: Allow the Iceland orangutan advert
    Every year vast swathes of rainforest that supports orangutans as well as thousands of other species are decimated by the palm oil industry. Palm oil is a hidden ingredient in many common household products and only one company so far has said enough is enough and pledged to remove it from their own brand products. If they are successful other brands WILL follow suit. People need to know the dangers and devastation that their eating habits are causing. The advert is not political it is 100% educational. I do not work for Iceland, nor do I have any links to the company. I am however passionate about the survival of the planet and the fate other species who share it with us.

  • Complete ban on "Barbaric" barbed wire in all fields
    Barbed wire causes so many injuries to innocent animals including wildlife and many dogs out walking with their owners because by the time it is noticed, it has already done the damage, including my own dogs who have needed veterinary treatment because of this. There are plenty of alternatives to this vicious wire so let's stop using this cruel wire doing any more damage.

  • The restriction of fireworks to organised displays on November 5th only
    Having seen my beautiful Bernese mountain dog collapse and shake with a heart beat pounding out his chest . No matter how much money I spend or what I do , i can not console my boy. It breaks my heart to see this, it’s for days on end because people can set them off whenever they want and what time they want , stress is not good for any human or animal, this affects us all.. Animals die from shock and fear . We are supposed to love and respect nature and our domestic pets not destroy them with fireworks . All I’m asking for is that we respect one another and come to a compromise to save our animals from the torture they go through around November . Please help !

  • Use only silent fireworks in Scotland
    Small children and animals are being constantly put in a state of fear for weeks at a time due to the careless use and misuse of noisy explosive fireworks. My dogs are trembling with fear every night, others are sharing their stories of similarly terrified pets on facebook and twitter.
