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 publications.you 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.
