This report, compiled jointly by The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) and the Nature Conservancy Council (NCC), and with the backing of the government Agriculture Departments, summarises the current situation around the persecution of birds of prey and owls, and puts forward 25 recommendations for action.
The 25 recommendations cover education and publicity to increase awareness; legislation and enforcement to ensure that more offenders are brought to court and given penalties that act as greater deterrents; pesticide approval and supply to tighten the uses and availability of pesticides; and research and development to reduce the perceived need to resort to the illegal use of pesticides.
