Subject: Wild Justice 75 – good news on general licences in Wales!

Friday 20th August 2021
Good news to end the week!
Yesterday evening, Natural Resources Wales launched a consultation on their general licences. This would not have happened in this form were it not for Wild Justice’s campaigning and most particularly our legal challenge of these licences. Thank you for your support – you have helped create the climate of reform.
The consultation is lengthy but that is because it is asking a wide range of sensible questions and seeking answers. We will review the consultation carefully and consult with others but Wild Justice welcomes the existence of this consultation. The consultation closes on 11 November, so there is plenty of time to think about the answers.

While we are here, thank you too for all your positive comments on our project on glyphosate (see here).
That’s it – have a good weekend!
