Time To Stand Up For Our Wildlife Hen Harrier Day Wales Is 18 July 2020

Chris waits 2015

Come and join Chris Packham and Iolo Williams and many more for Hen Harrier Day Wales.

Bad things happen when good people stand by. This is so very true and particularly in the case of Wildlife Crime. Our wildlife is being illegally killed out of sight and we need to stand up and stop it, no more standing by. We can all help stamp out wildlife crime by being aware of it and telling everyone we meet about it. The vast majority of people are unaware that these crimes go on day in day out, the vast majority need to know and need to stand up for our wildlife.

Join us for Hen Harrier Day Wales on Saturday 18th July to hear a great line up of speakers including Iolo Williams and Chris Packham talk about this sickening crime wave that goes on and on. But we can change things please don’t despair or give up, public opinion is very powerful indeed and with social media the opinion has a loud voice. Gone are the days when the “masses” could be controlled by managing the “news” to suit certain agendas. We can and are shining a light on the dirty secrets of the criminals that commit wildlife crime. Let’s make no mistake here we are asking for the law of the land to be upheld. Surely not much to ask? So let’s all ask the question when will the illegal slaughter of our wildlife be stopped? Shout it loud and tell everyone about it. Join us for Hen Harrier Day Wales and find out so much more.

We should all have the chance to watch wonderful Hen Harriers on our moors.

The Hen Harrier is a symbol for wildlife crime as this beautiful bird is perhaps the most persecuted form of our wildlife. We should have some 300 pairs of Hen Harriers in England alone yet only a tiny handful is present. One simple reason for the lack of Hen Harriers - illegal persecution by those who are associated with the sick industry of Driven Grouse Shooting. To ensure there are plenty of native Red Grouse to slaughter for fools that pay large sums of money to “shoot fish in a barrel” on our moors. Sadly this is a Welsh problem too now with the re-introduction of Driven Grouse Shooting in north-east Wales. This area was once a wonderful area for wildlife including Hen Harriers sadly now gone along with so much more of our wildlife. The area is very intensively managed to try to produce high numbers of Red Grouse to be slaughtered and then most are buried as there is no real demand for grouse meat. How insane is this? Our wildlife slaughtered so more of our wildlife can be slaughtered and then dumped so a tiny number of fools can enjoy a days “sport”, it sickens me. We all need to stand up for our wildlife now. Spread the word and tell everyone about the illegal killing of our wildlife. If you can please join us for Hen Harrier Day Wales and the UK Hen Harrier Day on 8th August 2020.

Don’t stand by and let bad things happen, stand up and be counted now.
