BASC and Natural England partnership agreement
BASC has recently signed a partnership agreement with Natural England. This new agreement recognises the importance of shooting’s conservation contribution to the English Countryside.
The agreement has an action plan which sets out a formula for joint working to achieve common aims. This covers matters of importance to shooting and to conservationists such as delivery of the Government’s Biodiversity 2020 programme, coastal access, wildfowling consents and future reviews of general licences which allow the necessary control of certain birds. A particular emphasis will be on how BASC’s Green Shoots programme can be further developed.

Instruction is in response to a statement issued by Lincolnshire Police.

BASC urges Home Office to deal with inefficiencies in service.
