Wild Justice #70

Monday 19th July 2021
Good morning!
Last week, the three of us spent a couple of days filming in the north of England for material to fit around a live broadcast on the traditional Hen Harrier Day slot ahead of the Inglorious 12th (the opening of the Red Grouse shooting season).  We’re filming in Scotland too and interviewing various experts at their desks and over internet links.
The programme will broadcast from 10am on Saturday 7 August and will be hosted by Chris Packham and Megan McCubbin.
With the help of a very wide range of academics, conservationists and campaigners Wild Justice will explore the broader issues in the uplands – the issues which affect Hen Harriers and people alike.
It’s a free event but please register your interest – click here – so that we can keep you updated on who you will see, and what you will hear.
