Recent legislation (Invasive Alien Species Order 2019) makes it illegal for animal rescue centres to return back to the wild grey squirrels whom they help. In reality, it means that British grey squirrel rescue is destroyed! Residential places are full and animals have to be turned away or euthanised!
We are raising money for a judicial review, and the papers are now in court.
We are trying to save grey squirrel rescue in this country. Animals are being killed, or left to die, because rescue centres cannot legally help them! Vets, rescue centre workers and compassionate members of the public are left traumatised and demoralised in the process. This situation cannot be right, and, with your help, we can challenge it.
The current target, to continue with the judicial review process, is £7500.00. There will be further costs, but there is a lot at stake, affecting every wildlife rescue centre in the country. If enough of us contribute even a small sum, together we can make a big difference!
Many many thanks for your support!
