PROJECT CamTag® is the reason why I wanted to explore this. This is a project to develop a camera satellite tag to obtain photographic evidence associated with the illegal killing of Birds of Prey, which may help lead to future convictions.
It would appear, when you search the internet for ‘bird of prey persecution’ that there are page after page of results (see here and here for examples) there are many people that would prefer that there were no birds of prey around them at all. Classing them either as vermin, pests or simply just a nuisance, they are exterminated with such an intensity that local populations could and possibly do disappear altogether.
Last evening saw another milestone, my JustGiving page passed its 1st £1000 of donations, Yay 🙂 Thank-you to all those supporters so far that have been willing to put their hands in their pockets and contribute.
