Wild bird killings: Natural England are facilitating a state-sponsored war on wildlife, Greens Animals Spokesperson
Responding to the 'shocking' news that the conservation 'watchdog' Natural England has permitted 170,000 wild bird killings in five years, the Green Party's Animals Spokesperson Keith Taylor MEP said:
“We are living through a biodiversity and mass extinction crisis, and rather than tackle it, Natural England and the government are sponsoring its acceleration. The slaughter of thousands of animals is simply unacceptable and must be opposed."
"It would seem that not only has the government gutted Natural England to the point which it is unable to carry out its duty to protect our wildlife and natural environment, under the Conservatives' watch, it has also become an active sponsor for a devastating attack on our precious wildlife."
