Save the Wallabies of Loch Lomond!
Wallabies that have inhabited a Loch Lomond island for more than 60 years face being wiped out. Dozens of the marsupials, which are native to New Zeland are being culled on Inchconnachan Island on Loch Lomond, as they are now seen as a threat to rare indigenous species. They are a popular tourist attraction but the current owners of the island are concerned that they are eating the natural vegetation that rare birds such as the capercaillie feed on. Luss Estates, which manages Inchconnachan, are considering reducing the numbers of the wallabies or completely getting rid of them to protect the low numbers of Scottish species. The objective of this petition is to raise peoples awareness of the proposed cull and give the Wallabies a fighting chance of survival by birthright.
