Save the Windermere geese

The Lake District National Park Authority (LDNPA) has decided to shoot 200 Canada geese during the nesting season. Its reasons are thoroughly unconvincing. There has been a significant public outcry but we need your help to save these geese. For detailed information, please read our fact sheet (an abbreviated version can be found here) and take action today!

Contact the LDNPA and tell them why you oppose the cull (it’s unethical, unjustifiable, and will not keep numbers down in the long term – find out more from our fact sheet).

Email the local MP, Tim Farron, to urge him to do all he can to stop the cull and tell him that you will not visit the Lake District if it goes ahead.

Contact the local councillors and urge them to stop this cull. Tell them that you will not visit the Lake District if it goes ahead:
