Get Active For Wildlife

Filed in Charities, Events on Jan.05, 2020

New Year brings increased snaring in the Peak District National Park. Snares are cruel, inhumane and indiscriminate and most European countries have banned them. Please be vigilant on the moors and report all snares urgently. Walkers and pets are at risk as well as wildlife.

If you’re out in the Peak District National Park and come across any snares, traps or see any suspicious activity from gamekeepers take photos, mark the location, take a short video if possible, using your watch or a GPS to show the date, time and location and report that information to Moorland Monitors and Hunt Investigation Team.  Or call 101 for a non-emergency; 999 in an emergency and ask for Derbyshire Constabulary’s Rural Crime Team.

Global Tiger Day 2017

Filed in Charities, In the Press on Jul.28, 2017

Global Tiger Day is celebrated across the world in recognition of the animal regularly voted the public’s favorite animal. Despite this, the tiger is endangered and under threat of extinction from habitat destruction and poaching. One hundred years ago there were 100,000 wild tigers, now there are less than 4000 tigers left in the wild. In the last century Asia’s wild tiger range has shrunk by 93%. Shockingly, 40% of that decline has happened in the past ten years.

I had the great privilege of talking at the BAWC Wildlife Crime Conference in Bristol over the weekend. It was an amazing event to be part of and full of people all fighting in their own way for wildlife that is being killed, trapped and removed within our countryside. Over the two days there were some really moving and powerful talks and it was just great to be part of.

Pongky Your Now Free

Filed in Articles, Charities on Feb.02, 2016

Hope is a great thing, without it you have nothing. When I sat with Pongky, a male Sumatran orangutan in Medan Zoo, Sumatra last year I couldn’t believe the suffering and pain I was witnessing. Paying visitors would pay to watch him and laugh at his screams. Those were screams of anguish though and not for their pleasure. I cant tell you how I hate cruelty to animals and what I saw on that day has haunted me ever since.
