Traditionally for us here in wildlife enquiries the autumn months see a lull in queries in comparison to the hectic spring and summer months and the busy winters. However, there are still loads of things that we have to keep tabs on, here are just a few of the topical queries we are getting and big issues that are keeping us busy at the moment;
Last but certainly not least - the Law Commission consultation on wildlife has been open since August and runs until 30 November 2012. If you care about our wildlife and want to see it afforded the protection it deserves, now is the opportunity to have your say and to make a real difference. You can find the links to the consultation, where to send you comments and some pointers on the main issues we will be raising on the links here and here. Birds like the hen harrier need a legal system that gives them a chance to survive, with only one pair breeding in England this year we need to speak up for this species now so please take a few minutes to write a letter and send it to the consultation saying why you think wildlife needs protecting and what you would like to see changed in the law to make it fit for purpose! Thank you in advance!
