Call for UK Government to timetable plans for tackling wildlife crime

Wild Justice is a member of Wildlife & Countryside LINK, which is the largest environment and wildlife coalition in England, bringing together 65 organisations to use their strong joint voice for the protection of nature.

LINK covers many policy areas and Wild Justice is represented on a number of committees, including the very active Wildlife Crime Group.

The Wildlife Crime Group is calling for the Westminster Government to commit to a detailed timetable for the progression of a number of recommendations made in a recent United Nations Office on Drugs & Crime report on how to tackle wildlife crime in the UK, including recommendations covering legislation, enforcement, prosecution, sentencing and monitoring.

A detailed blog outlining some of these recommendations has been written by the LINK Wildlife Crime Group Chair, Martin Sims, and can be read here.
