Corvid Predation Research
Support the work by SongBird Survival and The Game & Wildife Conservation Trust. Fully experimental scientific research into whether crows and magpies are affecting songbird and other small bird numbers. No one has ever done work like this before - if we don't do it how will we know what to do for the future of our environment - for the future of our children and our grandchildren. Nothing suggested in the methodology is against the law. Yes, it will involve culling magpies and crows - but not exerminating them! Killing anything is not very nice - but nor is having our small birds, their eggs and fledglings eaten by these other birds. This research is very important and we need your support to ensure that it happens. There are some uneducated people out there who think this is not a good idea and are petitioning against it - we need to combat their ignorance. Please sign to show your support for the research.
Note - this petition is my personal view and created directly in response to the other petition. Thank you all who has signed so far and thank you to the supporters of SongBird Survival who have passed my message on for me. I have even had an email from the SongBird Survival office to thank me for my support for their work; I will be joining them as a member today also.
