Ban the netting of trees and hedgerows

Ban the netting of trees and hedgerows

Ban the use of nets over trees and hedgerows to prevent birds nesting in them.

Why is this important?

Netting trees and hedgerows is a cruel and unsustainable practice, leading to the indiscriminate death and suffering of song birds and other birds, including specially protected species. Birds get caught up and tangled in the nets and die a slow death. More and more development companies are resorting to this cruel practice in order to bypass ecologically sustainable building practices, leading to the loss of nesting sites and habitat for birds.
