We need YOU to help change the law to protect our pigeons

This petition had 1,797 supporters


The Raptor Alliance lobbies on behalf of UK pigeon fanciers for a change in the protection of racing birds from predatory raptors. There's approximately 42,000 pigeon fanciers in the UK, including HM the Queen herself and we need to protect these pigeons. 

Pigeon fanciers everywhere want the legal right to protect their birds from predators, an acceptable ecological balance through new Government regulations on bird or prey population levels. We all need to "lobby" our existing and prospective parliamentary candidates to ensure they support the Law Commission's recommendations to ensure we can apply to Natural England for licenses in the future. 

The Law Commission, appointed by the Government, has concluded their revision of the 1981 Wildlife act (and others). The Law Commission has listened to us, considered our submission and their revision of the act includes all of our recommendations. 

In summary the proposed act includes ALL the necessary amendments to the existing law so that individual pigeon fanciers will be able to make licence applications to Natural England.
