Hi all,

One of the most critically important pieces of wildlife legislation --
Habitats Directive -- is being "reviewed" by EU mandarins.

Watering down its requirements would be extremely injurious to wildlife
protection across Europe.

For more info. on how to lobby the EU directly see the RSPB website --

There's more background here in The Guardian --

And the laughable attempts by the UK to water-down regulations are
detailed in this Guardian story from 2012 --

>From roads, to ports, to fracking, this important legislation prevents
the wholesale damage to the most important landscapes critical to
supporting wildlife. It's been on the 'hit list' for the European
business lobby for a while. Now it seems they've got their review, led
by the EU president.

Please forward and encourage others to participate -- 
this is really important!!



"We are not for names, nor men, nor titles of Government,
nor are we for this party nor against the other but we are
for justice and mercy and truth and peace and true freedom,
that these may be exalted in our nation, and that goodness,
righteousness, meekness, temperance, peace and unity with

God, and with one another, that these things may abound."
(Edward Burrough, 1659 - from 'Quaker Faith and Practice')
