Earlier this year a petition calling for a ban on grouse shooting by environmental campaigner Mark Avery received over 100,000 signatures triggering a debate in parliament. The debate will take place on 31 October 2016 and it is important that MPs attend to discuss the future of grouse moors and the importance of our iconic birds of prey including the hen harrier.
RSPB is asking us to help by contacting our MPs and asking them to attend the debate.
An update will be in Martin Harper’s (RSPB Conservation Director) blog on
1 November 2016 – click HERE.
