Wirral Barn Owl Trust is not aligned to any political party and nothing we say, either on this website or on social media, is intended to be seen as a party-political statement. That said, we work very hard, as a voluntary conservation group, spending our own time and money to protect and support Barn Owls and we feel we are entitled to take a strong stand against those who seek to harm the natural environment. In particular, we fully support the statutory and non-statutory agencies and charities that work together to combat wildlife crime. The following may be of interest to our members and supporters:
Birders Against Wildlife Crime (BAWC) is an independent,
volunteer-led, campaign group set up in 2014 by a group of experienced
birders and conservationists who just like you are sick of the number of
crimes being committed against wildlife. Please spend a few minutes visiting our website HERE to find out more. Please follow us on Twitter @birdersagainst
So what’s Wildlife Crime Aware all about?
For far too long, Wildlife Criminals have got away with illegally
killing or illegally disturbing our wildlife in plain sight and without
any real fear of being caught and brought to justice. Why?
Like you I was sick of feeling useless, I wanted things to change but
sitting getting angry and cross about it wasn’t going to change
anything. I had to find a way to make a difference and I wanted to put
the power back into our hands. After spending weeks reading through
wildlife crime news reports and information I realised that alone
I couldn’t really make enough of a difference but together we could plug
the gaps and really make a change. Please take a few minutes to find out more HERE. Follow us on Twitter at @wildcrimeaware
