The National Wildlife Crime Unit's funding is currently being 'reviewed' and it faces possible cuts or closure.

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.

An online petition has been set up in support of NWCU. Please sign it and encourage others to do so

Apparently the National Wildlife Crime Unit has now received funding for the next 4 years, so there's no need to sign this petition any longer.
