  1. Stop the govement shooting deer because they say there are too many.

    The Government say they should shoot deer as there are too many!
    There are too many humans but we can't go round shooting them!
    I am an animal person and it's not fair to kill an innocent creature like this. I am quite passionate about this an I hope something can be done! Thanks,

    Eleanor

          • Stop Scottish Coal creating an open-cast mine near Edgehead, Midlothian

            Scottish Coal wish to dig an open-cast mine near the village of Edgehead in Midlothian, Scotland. This area is currently woodland and is near a Country park plus a nursery located in the village. If this mine goes ahead, then villagers and others will be subject to pollution, noise and increased traffic round the area.
            Please support the campaign to stop this plan as it is an environmental disaster waiting to happen.

            • Tax the fizzy drink and disposible plastic bottle manufactures to fund trawlers to skim the plastic waste out of the pacific.

              In brief - The plastic slick floating in the Pacific has to be cleaned up. It can't just be left there to choke the life out of the oceans and wildlife. As is evident below PLASTICS are such a serious issue and we are not getting to grips with it.

              In Australia Coke is resisting the imposition of a deposit on bottles because it will, 'hurt its profits'. 20% of ocean waste comes from ocean going liners and platforms that are not responsible about dumping at sea because it is cheaper.

              If they and others (as it applies – research…

                • Don't make it easy for builders to build on green land, protect the UK's Green Belt!

                  I read in a local paper and a national paper that more building on green land is going to be possible and easier for builders as some councils have not protected their green belt areas, this is distressing. We already have problems with flooding, and part of that reason is all the building that's going on, there's no-where for the rain to go. I find it distasteful that green areas are not being protected for our future generations who will suffer as a result. We are custodians of the earth we do not need to build on every bit of…

                  • Build more Nuclear powers stations as quickly as possible so the lights don't go out

                    This site will lead us all to ruin unless it proposes active policies that although hard to swallow are the truth. Nuclear is clean, cleaner than any fossil fuel (Google 'Thorium Reactor') We need to start building more power stations now, and find somewhere sensible bury the waste.

                      • The latest government plan...............to KILL off the greater part of our Deer population. Surely there is an alternative to Killing!

                        KILL, KILL, KILL!!! Why is KILLING, oh sorry culling, the only option used to deal with all perceived problems concerning wildlife. Kill the Badgers because they MIGHT be the cause of spreading BOVINE T.B.!! Kill the foxes because ONE entered an OPEN door and attacked a child. Now it's kill the deer population because they have been too successful in our countryside. Surely in the 21st Century modern science can come up with alternatives to this killing frenzy that seems to be gripping the Government, DEFRA and so called Wildlife and Countryside preservation 'specialists'. Or are we descending to the…

                        • Preventing Local Authorities forcing permanent traveller sites onto a community

                          Our village is Burn in Yorkshire. We are 450 people and we have a 12 pitch traveller site that we have a good relationship with. Selby District Council are planning to increase this to 29 pitches. The existing travellers do not want it and neither does the settled community. The site will be more than 5 acres and will dominate our small village. We have no school, post office, doctor or shop so we have no amenities whatsoever for the travellers to use. The government should legislate to force Councils to hold a referendum before any new traveller sites can…

                              A Chinese meal shark fin soup should be banned they cut the fins off and leave them to drown at the bottom. sharks are one of the most important species to the oceans they keep the fish stock low so there is a glorious amount of oxygen so corals can thrive too. They really are the most important part of the ocean food chains!

                              • Save our gardens

                                London is losing a significant amount of its green gardens.

                                The London Wildlife Trust took aerial photos of 1,292 garden plots across London in 1998-99 and between 2006-08.

                                New analysis of the data showed London's vegetated garden land fell by 30 sq km to 220 sq km over that period.

                                While residents continue to exchange their green gardens for paving and concrete, we will see a destruction of habitat, resulting in a loss of wildlife foraging areas.

                                Heavily paved areas do not support wildlife and they prevent water from seeping into the soil naturally to reach the water table. This…

                                  • Impose higher VAT on takeway foods with revenue to pay for street cleaners

                                    When walking around the streets and countryside, despite the best efforts of many locals, litter is a huge problem. People can be fined for dropping litter, but this is rare.

                                    • banning wood burning stoves in urban areas
