During its relatively short existence the National Wildlife Crime Unit has made a huge contribution to fighting wildlife crime throughout the country. Including leading action against the persecution of Hen Harriers and other birds of prey, prosecuting egg-collectors, and combatting illegal trading in the import of internationally threatened species.
Its loss would be a serious setback for nature conservation.
