Sign the e-petition asking for hen harrier joint recovery plan publication

Monday, 21 July 2014

An epetition has been launched by the GWCT entitled "Hen Harrier Joint Recovery Plan - publish it". The e-petition is aimed at DEFRA and states: "There are thousands of square miles of suitable habitat, but very few breeding pairs of hen harriers in England. If the remaining chicks die, the hen harrier will effectively be extinct as a breeding species in England. Defra said it would stop extinctions like this. In August 2012 Defra asked moor owners, gamekeepers and conservation groups, including the RSPB, to work together and write a single plan to restore England’s precious hen harrier. They reviewed the evidence and scientific literature to prepare their joint plan. Since January 2014 Defra could have published the plan; but has not. For the sake of the hen harrier, Defra must resist external pressure to meddle with the plan. England’s hen harrier population is too fragile to wait any longer. You have it in your gift to save the English hen harrier and return it across our skies. Do it. Be brave and publish the hen harrier recovery plan today – the clock is ticking." Sign the e-petition today and please encourage others to do likewise
