Protection of Greenland Whitefronted Geese

Gareth Harris has highlighted the below Guardian article about legal protection for Greenland Whitefronts.  It refers to Tony Fox, ex WWT. 

“This species (sic) is protected everywhere it lives – except in England and Wales.  They were once widespread in Wales, now there are just 21 birds left on the Dyfi estuary.  Fox praises wildfowling clubs which have voluntarily agreed not to shoot them but the Welsh government has so far refused to give this rare bird legal protection.  There’s a new public consultation and people should get involved.  They should at least raise a honk.”     

The link to this consultation is at:
