I suggest a campaign about ...

The control of buzzards in favour of the minority activity of pheasant shooting. There are wildlife and public finance issues

I would ask all people to contact their MP and the ministyer incharge of DEFRA in opposing the suggestion that gamekeepers would be able to place buzzards in captivity and destroy their nests in order to help the 'pheasant shooting industry'. Apart from this being for the benefit of such a small minority, DEFRA is asking for public finance to implement its ideas at a time of financial pressure on all budgets. Buzzard take extremely low numbers of pheasants preferring other foods. The shooting industry contributes to the decline in many raptor species.
