Further to last week’s news that a young white-tailed eagle has been found dead on a grouse moor in the Cairngorms National Park, having been poisoned with a banned toxin (see here and here), and the Scottish Government’s woefully inadequate response (see here), Chris Packham has sent a video message to First Minister Nicola Sturgeon calling for action.
He sent the video, via Twitter, this evening. Click below to watch.
Thank you to all of you who have written to the First Minister (Nicola Sturgeon) and Environment Cabinet Secretary (Roseanna Cunningham) about this repulsive crime, which is far from being a one-off. It is clear that their inboxes have been deluged. Good, they need to be.
If you haven’t written yet, please consider doing so.
Here are the email addresses of the relevant ministers:
To email Nicola Sturgeon, please use this address: email@example.com
To email Roseanna Cunningham, please use this address: CabSecECCLR@gov.scot
