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.

BASC is hoping its sponsorship of the latest edition of the European Breeding Bird Atlas will help boost numbers.
UK’s largest shooting organisation says licensing continues to be ‘postcode lottery’.
The results of the elections for three national seats on BASC Council were announced at the AGM on Saturday 9 June.
