Raptor Persecution Awareness Raising Day

Raptor Persecution Awareness Raising Day
Goathland Community Hub, North Yorkshire
10 am – 4 pm on Saturday 10 August 2019
Raptor persecution continues to plague the north of England and none of our birds of prey are immune. The needless slaughter of these iconic species continues unabated and the deaths are frequently associated with commercial game shooting.
To highlight the issue the Northern England Raptor Forum [NERF] is holding a second raptor persecution awareness raising day. The event will be held at the Community Hub in Goathland, North Yorkshire from 1000 to 1600 on Saturday 10 August 2019.
The event is supported by North Yorkshire Police, Operation Owl and the RSPB who will be on hand, together with members of NERF to discuss the issues with both bird of prey enthusiasts and members of the public who are committed to bringing bringing this disgraceful situation to and end.
Goathland is in the heart of the North Yorks Moors. It is the home of the popular TV series ‘Heartbeat’ and on the North York Moors Heritage Steam Railway.
