A short diversion from this blog’s theme, but an important one.
Scottish charity Trees for Life is making a legal challenge against NatureScot (formerly known as SNH), with the intention of taking the Government’s nature conservation agency to court for allowing too many beavers to be killed.
Legal challenges are not for the faint-hearted nor for the lazy. They are hard work and time-consuming. They also cost money.
Trees for Life has a crowdfunder which is open for another 7 days. They’ve raised over £25K so far, with a target of £40K. The crowdfunder also provides details about why this legal challenge is necessary.
If you can help them, please support it here.
