The largest ever survey into crime in rural areas has been launched in England, Wales and Northern Ireland to investigate the true impact of offences on countryside communities.

The survey, launched by the National Rural Crime Network (NRCN)*, backed by the Countryside Alliance and supported by the Home Office, is calling for people who work or live in rural areas to come forward and give their views on countryside crimes, the impact they have on the wider community and to help shape the future of crime prevention and rural policing.Click here to take part.

Show your support for Nature and Shooting

Wednesday, 20 May 2015

Countryside Alliance Ireland is calling on all those who love our wildlife and the countryside to respond to the European Commission’s proposal to review the Birds and Habitats Directive.
 
The Nature Directives, as they are collectively known, have played an essential part in increasing our biodiversity and wildlife, while forming the backbone to our conservation aims.

Shooting is highly regarded in the Nature Directives and we wish it to stay that way, opening and amending the Directives will allow attacks to happen which could threaten both our countryside and the sports that we love.

The public consultation is open for 12 weeks and we ask you to spare just a few minutes of your time to answer the questionnaire.
