Last Friday, 12 Aug, marked the official launch of the Grouse hunting season (also known as the “Glorious Twelfth”). In a continuing effort to raise awareness of the ecological dangers of intensive land management practices on the estates where this “sport” takes place, we’ve compiled a collection of videos to back up our endeavour to ban driven grouse shooting once and for all. You’ll note we’ve included no less than 3 videos from Springwatch presenter, Chris Packham, who has emerged as a strong speaker on behalf of the cause. If you want to see more from him, his Youtube channel includes more videos on the subject, as well as a variety of other related causes that he supports.
We are so proud to announce that the petition, which we first spoke about back in April has finally reached its goal of 100,000 signatures and will now be debated in Parliament. Considering we posted just last week urging people to sign when the tally was only 78,000 signatures, we feel that is quite the feat!
Please sign and show Parliament just how many of us are tired of the persecution of innocent animals and the unnecessary intensive land management practices taking place here in the UK.
