Northern England Raptor Forum (NERF) will be hosting a raptor persecution awareness day on Saturday 11th August 2018, in support of Hen Harrier day.
Raptor persecution takes place in all of the NERF study areas and involves a wide variety of species. For this reason, NERF have chosen to highlight the problem as a whole rather than focus solely on Hen Harriers.
There will be presentations from Chief Inspector Louise Hubble, Head of the National Wildlife Crime Unit and North Yorkshire Police Operation Owl, the RSPB Investigations Team and James Bray – RSPB Bowland Project Officer with more to be confirmed.
