Save Robins from Massacre in England!
« on: May 27, 2014, 03:30:35 PM »
Action Alert!


The English government is weighing plans that would allow people to kill robins and destroy their nests. We can't let that happen.

Natural England is proposing that robins and other birds in England can be killed and their nests and their eggs destroyed. We must stop this proposal now!
 
According to the Guardian, "it appears that the country's 6.7m pairs of robins are no longer the feathered friend of yesteryear. A consultation by Natural England, the body that advises the government on the natural environment, has made the case for allowing people to destroy the birds' nests and remove their eggs, amid growing concerns that they threaten health and safety. Natural England is also looking at similar measures to permit "taking, damaging and destroying of nests and eggs" for pied wagtails and starlings."
