Wild Justice was set up by Chris Packham, Ruth Tingay and myself and was launched on 13 February this year. Our first legal challenge was against the General Licences issued by Natural England on 1 January this year.
Late this afternoon Wild Justice heard that we had won our first legal challenge. We could only take this case with the generous support of over 1100 donors. Thank you all!
We’ll be talking to our lawyers about this and what it means in the long term.
Here is the link to the announcement on the Westminster Government website – click here.
Thank you to everyone who supported this successful challenge against casual killing of some birds. We will post more information after discussions between ourselves and with our lawyers.
