Ravens are beautiful, intelligent and sociable birds. After being common in Scotland in the 19th century, they were driven to the brink of extinction as a result of persecution by gamekeepers and farmers. They’re now a protected species.

So why has Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) now given gamekeepers a licence to kill 300 ravens?

Raptor Persecution Scotland say, „gamekeepers have long wanted ravens to be added to the General Licence because they are seen as a perceived threat to grouse stocks. Ravens are [also] routinely demonised in the press. However, this latest licence authorising a multi-year mass culling of ravens over a large area for spurious reasons (and apparently very little, if any, scientific justification) is unprecedented. That it also happens to be a well-known raptor persecution hotspot just adds to the lunacy of this situation.“

Please sign the Care2 petition to urge SNH to withdraw the licence.

Thank you,

P.S. Well-known conservationist Chris Packham has written to SNH to urge them to reverse their decision. Will you take action too and sign the petition?
