positive footprint

It’s not often these days that I experience a reality moment – hitting the half-century mark and all that means you’ve seen much of what life can throw at you. However, during a recent visit to Cameroon, the devasting reality of mankind’s collective footprint on our planet came home to me. Forgive the purple prose, but I was experiencing one of nature’s finest sunrises – ochres and mauves haemorrhaged across the Atlantic seascape and lit up the Limbe islands like jewels from an unspoilt nirvana of tranquillity. But looking over the Limbe seawall, my enjoyment of nature’s finery was instantly dashed. A raft of plastic detritus washed back and forth against the pristine sands as far as I could see, north and south. Humankind’s flotsam and jetsam had travelled the…

politicians pledge to fix firearms licensing

Processes and costs for granting or renewing a firearms certificate could finally be standardised across the UK, after the government said it would publish a draft of statutory firearms licensing guidance this summer. In a House of Lords debate on the Offensive Weapons Bill, Earl Howe, minister of state for defence, undertook to hold a public consultation on the introduction of statutory guidance to police chief officers “that will apply to issues such as background checks, medical suitability, and other criteria to protect public safety.” This was in response to a proposed amendment to the bill from the Earl of Shrewsbury, who wanted a legal requirement to be placed on the Home Secretary to open such a consultation within three months of the Offensive Weapons Bill receiving royal assent. The amendment was…

welsh setback for shooting

Shooting organisations have been dealt a blow in the battle to restore shooting on Welsh public land. BASC, the NGO and the Countryside Alliance were trying to mount a judicial review against the ban – but a judge has refused permission. Judge Andrew Baker ruled that the attempt was out of time, deciding that the decision to curtail shooting on National Resources Wales-controlled land was taken on 12 July following a letter on 9 July from Welsh environment minister Hannah Blythyn. In reality, the decision was not made public until 20 September. This leaves little hope of the Welsh government changing its mind, and apparently spells an end to a saga that saw NRW discard the results of its own consultation, which said that commercial shoots should continue on its land, subject to…

basc backs bga

BASC and the British Game Alliance have joined forces to secure the future of shooting. BASC will support the BGA with financial backing, access to BASC staff expertise and a BASC council member to sit on the BGA board. That council member is Peter Watson. He said: “BASC and the BGA are working together to ensure that assured game meat enters the food chain and that the BGA Assurance scheme, which references the Code of Good Shooting Practice, is strictly adhered to. This stands to protect game shooting and provide validity and reassurance of the provenance and quality of British game meat.” Tom Adams, managing director of the BGA, said: “The BGA is grateful for BASC’s support. Working together, we can focus on delivering our shared objectives of a sustainable game market and…

general licences under review

Natural England is set to review the general licences for controlling pest bird species in England. General licences allow the necessary control of specific species in order to prevent damage to crops or for other reasons such as conservation, disease prevention, and to protect public health and safety. They are issued annually by Natural England and separately by the relevant authorities in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. It is not necessary to apply for or to have a copy of the licences, but people who control these birds must abide by the relevant licence conditions. BASC said it will co-operate with Natural England to ensure the outcomes of the review are positive for conservation. BASC’s Glynn Evans said: “General licences are a valid and appropriate method of permitting wildlife management long recognised by government.…
