• End All Hunting on National Trust Land
    There is too much evidence that illegal hunting is taking place on National Trust Land. The National Trust should stop issuing licences to hunts unless all hunting activity on National Trust Land is independently monitored to ensure that no illegal hunting is taking place. That National Trust should be supporters and upholders of the law. 84% of the public to not want to see a repeal of the hunting act.

  • Keep animal prosecution cases with the RSPCA
    The CPS are already under pressure so would not in my opinion put as much emphasis on Animal cases. Animal Welfare Vets Police the RSPCA and even the CPS themselves would rather it would stay as is. What benefit could there possibly be in changing from an organisation that only deals with Animal Welfare.

  • Palm oil in biscuits and chocolate
    Palm oil production has destroyed vast areas of forest in countries including Indonesia, which is home to orangutans, the Rainforest foundation UK says palm oil companies are now planning to expand into the rainforests of the Congo basin in Africa, home to lowland gorillas and other threatened primates. Palm oil companies are also partly responsible for the recent devastating forest fires in Sumatra, which caused pollution episodes in Malaysia and Singapore.

  • Save Askham Bog Etc,near York
    As Yorkshire Wildlife Trust’s first ever nature reserve, Askham Bog has special significance. In fact in 1946 the Trust was created with the purpose of looking after the site which was bought to save it from development. A brief summary of the issues relating to the proposals is as follows: Askham Bog supports an exceptionally high biodiversity with healthy populations of numerous nationally rare species, and the only regional populations of many others. Particular rarities include gingerbread sedge carex elongata (largest population in England), numerous water beetles and the fen square-spot moth diarsia florida. Askham Bog has been recognised as an exceptional habitat for two centuries. It is highly valued both by the population of York and by a national and international community of naturalists and ecologists. Just two miles from the city centre it offers a peaceful place to walk and enjoy nature. The importance of the site is entirely dependent on the integrity of the local water table and it is exceptionally sensitive to any disturbance of that. We are concerned that these housing proposals will irreversibly damage the hydrology of Askham Bog and its special interest will be lost. There has been no information presented to indicate that this will not be the case. We are also concerned about the huge increase in recreational access on to the reserve. There is highly likely to be unmanaged access from a range of locations, particularly from dog walkers and young people. Whilst we welcome large numbers of people on to many of our sites, Askham Bog is too small and fragile to cope with this high volume of unregulated access. We therefore consider that the site should not be allocated for development and that doing so would result in significant loss of the important wildlife features of the site. This allocation is therefore contrary to the Council’s own policies regarding the protection of biodiversity and Sites of Special Scientific Interest. http://www.ywt.org.uk/news/2014/06/12/help-save-york%E2%80%99s-wildlife http://www.ywt.org.uk/York

  • Live Animal Exports
    Animals suffer from being crowded into containers and driven miles across country to waiting ships and then have to endure the voyage which ends in their slaughter. Very very cruel, especially this week when a boat returned to Kent 2 hours after being caught in a gale in the channel and the poor animals were then driven back up to Lancashire. NFU spokesman claims this is not cruel. I beg to differ

  • Oppose Badger Cull in Wiltshire
    The case against badgers, that they are the main transmitter of TB to cows, is as yet unproven, and until the scientists can agree and have definite proof of their guilt, culling badgers is a crime against nature. Badgers are an important link in the food chain of the woodland and countryside scene, and like all animals, should be treasured and preserved, not criminalised and destroyed. It is hoped that a vaccine to protect cows will be available within a few years. I would like the government to put money into this instead of culling innocent animals and threatening a link in our natural environment, the long term results of which could herald another as yet unknown environmental disaster.

  • Save Blaikiewell Animal Sanctuary
    On 1 December 2005 Tavish Scott, the Scottish Executive transport minister at that time, made the surprising announcement that the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (AWPR) would follow a line that was not one of the original five routes that went out for public consultation in Spring 2005. The proposed new route combines elements of the original route with the addition of an 8 mile long 'fast link' connecting the AWPR to the A90 at Stonehaven. The following year the line of the 'fast link' was drawn. The Fast Link of the AWPR cuts out twenty acres of land used by Blaikiewell Animal Sanctuary and owned by Redwing Liveries that supports the sanctuary. The adjoining Redwing Riding School, that founded and also supports the sanctuary, will also lose grazing and riding areas to the new road. The loss of twenty acres, combined with the adjacent new dual carriageway and big roundabout causing light, noise and air pollution, will have a devastating effect on the sanctuary, livery and riding school to the point where we will have to think seriously about closing down. There is no available land to buy near-by and the compensation will in no way be enough for us to relocate. The threat of this road which has been hanging over us for six years is now about to be realised with the final appeal being rejected by the supreme court. The petition is our last ditch attempt to save the sanctuary and the two businesses that support it.
