Sign the petition to amend the 1967 Forestry Act to protect wildlife

Craig Shuttleworth, one of the country’s leading experts on red and grey squirrels and the driving force behind the return of red squirrels to the Isle of Anglesey off the northwest coast of Wales, is promoting a petition to amend the 1967 Forestry Act. The story is simple: under the Act, felling licenses cannot be refused to protect wildlife or conditions added to a licence to mitigate the effects of felling on wildlife (including red squirrels, common dormice, bats and great-crested newts).
