Last week I met two barristers and a couple of solicitors and was advised that there is a good legal case on which we can challenge the ridiculous plan by Michael Gove’s Department of the Environment (Defra) to remove eggs or chicks of Hen Harriers from grouse moors – a scheme they call brood management but which is so unpopular and derided in conservation circles that it is known as ‘brood meddling’.
So at 7am this morning a crowd funding page on the site Crowd Justice will go live: here is the link which will go live at or around 7am https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/justice-for-hen-harriers/
Hen Harriers can’t hire lawyers – they need us to do that for them.
And I can’t pay all the legal costs (estimated at £25k even though our lawyers are giving us a great deal and potential costs are limited by the Aarhus convention) – I need you to chip in generously if we are to fund this challenge, please.
Together we can take this challenge on behalf of a bird we love – #justice4henharriers
