New Pre­da­tion Ac­tion Group Fact Sheet and Film


PAG has pub­lished a ‘Fact Sheet: Some Un­wel­come Truths About Pre­da­tion’ to an­swer a grow­ing de­mand for ev­i­dence of what is per­ceived to be an in­creas­ingly se­ri­ous pre­da­tion is­sue, and its im­pact on the ecol­ogy, the ru­ral econ­omy, the tourist in­dus­try and an­gling. For a num­ber of years PAG has been re­search­ing the grow­ing im­pact of pre­da­tion on fish­eries, birds and small mam­mals, and mak­ing the re­sults of its re­search pub­lic. The Fact Sheet is a pre­lude to the pub­li­ca­tion of ‘Big Pic­ture Two: Some Un­wel­come Truths About Pre­da­tion’, which will de­liver fur­ther de­tails of the grow­ing body of ev­i­dence of the ex­tent of the prob­lem. The PAG film – ‘Pre­da­tion: an Eco­log­i­cal Dis­as­ter’ – on the sub­ject of preda­tors and their im­pact (which has been over a year in the mak­ing), has also now been com­pleted and acts as an au­di­ble/vis­i­ble back-up to some of the ev­i­dence pub­lished in the Fact Sheet and Big Pic­ture pub­li­ca­ can ob­tain a copy of both the Fact Sheet and the film (see be­low for de­tails). The in­ten­tion of pub­lish­ing the Fact Sheet and ‘Pre­da­tion: an Eco­log­i­cal Dis­as­ter’ is to make the body of re­search and ev­i­dence de­tail­ing the im­pact of pre­da­tion more ac­ces­si­ble. PAG hopes that the ev­i­dence pre­sented in the Fact Sheet and the film will have some in­flu­ence in per­suad­ing the pow­ers-that-be of the se­ri­ous sit­u­a­tion the en­vi­ron­ment is fac­ing as a re­sult of multi-level pre­da­tion. If the Fact Sheet and film find their way into the hands of your MP, so much the bet­ter! We will in­clude a sug­gested let­ter to go with sub­mis­sions to MPS with the Fact Sheets and films pur­chased.
