Act now to protect wildlife! A message from Badger Trust
Posted 9 January 2013
Badger Trust is very concerned that problems with funding may result in Britain’s National Wildlife Crime Unit (NWCU) being axed. The NWCU is a national police unit that gathers intelligence on wildlife crime and provides analytical and investigative support to police services. Defra has agreed its share of the funding but the Home Office has yet to sign off the £136,000 required to ensure the survival of the NWCU, whose funding expires on 31st March 2013. Please take two actions.
