No to More Slash and Burn!

Reason for signing

  • There is a general decline in our bird numbers even with the enhancement of protected areas through European nature conservation legislation. This proposal to reduce the prohibited hedge cutting period has no scientific rationale behind it to purport that it won't impact negatively on bird conservation. In my view it's a very irresponsible suggestion by the Minister.
