Ask your MP to do something

Weds 5 Aug CopyBy chance, the three main MPs in the Peak District are from three different political parties: Andrew Bingham, High Peak, Con; Nick Clegg, Sheffield Hallam, Lib Dem; and Angela Smith, Penistone and Stockbridge, Lab.

If one of these is your MP then why not write and tell them how upset you are about the lack of raptors in the Peak District National Park and your dissatisfaction with progress on protecting wildlife from wildlife crime in a National Park. Ask them to contact the other two MPs and to form a united front, and seek a meeting with the Chief Executive of the Peak District National Park, the Director General of the National Trust and the Chair of Natural England to ask what they are going to do about wildlife crime in this area.

If you are a resident in this area then you should lead the charge (please).

The rest of us can write to the National Trust and ask them to stop driven grouse shooting on their land in National Parks.

And write to our own MPs about the subject generally.

And signing this e-petition will send a signal that more must be done to remove the ills of driven grouse shooting from our hills.

  1. Response received today via my MP Heather Wheeler from Mrs Lesley Robers, Chair of Peak District National Park.
    Mrs Roberts acknowledges that illegal persecution is likely to be a significant factor and believes that continuing to seek co-operation from moorland owners and gamekeepers is the solution. They believe the initiative has been positive in reducing incidents of persecution and are considering what further action they can take to address poor performance of key species.
    A copy of the letter can be sent to you Mark, if required.
