Challenging the Northern Ireland general licences

Today we launch a legal challenge to Northern Ireland’s general licences and we’re asking for your financial support, please.

We need to raise £45,000 to take this case all the way through the courts and we are more than half way there already.

We’re very determined to make a difference.

See our crowdfunder for more details of the case and for an easy way to donate. Please help if you can.

Aren’t Rooks rather haughty looking birds? Why should DAERA have put them on a general licence where they can be killed in unlimited numbers for ‘conservation purposes’ – when there is no need to kill any at all as a conservation measure?
