250,000 People Demand Investigation Into Bird Kill Licences - Time For The Government To Sit Up And Listen....
Well, quite a landmark today!
Our petition, calling for an investigation into the licencing activities of Natural England, has reached a quarter of a million signatures!
I'm currently awaiting an official response to our campaign from Defra (the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs), I'm due to hear from them within the next two weeks. This interaction is being facilitated by a highly respected MP who is sympathetic to the campaign.
Meanwhile I'm hoping that the enormous level of public support for the petition will be picked up once again by the media, raising the profile of the issue further and increasing the pressure on the government to respond and act positively (for a change...)
There has been little official government recognition of the petition up to this point but it seems unlikely that they can ignore such an extraordinarily high level of public concern.
I'll update further when I have a response from Defra and hopefully we will have some more media coverage in the meantime.
Please keep sharing the petition, we didn't dare dream of this level of support - but bolstered by this landmark figure, we are aiming ever higher.
Next goal is 300,000, we can do it.
