But the Hen Harrier is still being slaughtered in the name of driven grouse shooting.

But make no mistake the tide is turning, we will win, we need more people to stand with us!

HH Day wet us

It doesn't matter about the weather, if we get out and shout and protest we will win.

Chris belts it out 2015

We are fighting, passionately for the law of the land to be upheld, not a lot to ask.

This year there are lots of events that you can attend, just come along and show the world that you care about our wildlife being illegally killed in the name of "sport", it is wrong, it is sickening and we have the power to stop it! It wont be easy, powerful people are blocking the law being upheld, but look back in history and there are lots of examples of this, many wanted the slave trade kept, but right won in the end. It will do again if enough of us stand up and say "We want the law enforced, and we want our wildlife alive and there for everyone to enjoy!". This is not extremism, or some nutty animal rights campaign, or even some left wing movement as the hunters will tell you, no, we just want the law of this land unheld and our wildlife not be slaughtered. It's not a big ask, and together we can make it happen!

Crowd HH Day 2016 1

If you can not get to an event, talk to everyone you know, tell them about Hen Harriers! Tell them how the law is being broken time and time again. Tell them that hundreds of pairs of Hen Harriers are missing from our uplands so that a tiny number of people can shoot more of our native birds - Red Grouse. And for what? Sick fun. They break the law, ruin the uplands and deny us the native wildlife that should be on our moors. Not just killing Hen Harriers but Peregrine Falcons, Goshawks in fact any predator at all that just might take one of their mass managed grouse. It is totally wrong. Please take a stand and let us together end this killing of our precious wildlife.
