Miss it and miss out!
A bit of info this month from Tim Paisley and Derek Stritton on a
subject very important to carp anglers country wide – the growing
otter problem…
“PAG has published a ‘Fact Sheet: Some Unwelcome Truths About
Predation’ to answer a growing demand for evidence of what is
perceived to be an increasingly serious predation issue, and its
impact on the ecology, the rural economy, the tourist industry and
angling. For a number of years, PAG has been researching the
growing impact of predation on fisheries, birds and small mammals
and making the results of its research public. The Fact Sheet is a
prelude to the publication of ‘Big Picture Two: Some Unwelcome
Truths About Predation’, which will deliver further details of the
growing body of evidence of the
extent of the problem. The PAG film
– ‘Predation: an Ecological Disaster’
– on the subject of predators and
their impact (which has been over a
year in the making), has also now
been completed and acts as an
audible/visible backup to some of
the evidence published in the Fact
Sheet and Big Picture publications.
You can obtain a copy of both the
Fact Sheet and the film. See below
for details.
“The intention of publishing the
Fact Sheet and ‘Predation: an
Ecological Disaster’ is to make the
body of research and evidence detailing the impact of predation
more accessible. PAG hopes that the evidence presented in the Fact
Sheet and the film will have some influence in persuading the
powers-that-be of the serious situation the environment is facing as a
result of multi-level predation. If the Fact Sheet and film find their
way into the hands of your MP, so much the better! We will include a
suggested letter to go with submissions to MPs with the Fact Sheets
and films purchased. There are three ways you can buy your hard
copy of the Fact Sheet, together with a copy of the film: By sending
your name and postal address, together with a minimum donation of
£6.50 by cheque or postal order to cover P&P, to: PAG, Horseshoe
Lake, Burford Road, Lechlade, Gloucestershire GL7 3QQ. Or you can
pay £6.50 via Paypal on the PAG website:
www.predationactiongroup.co.uk Or you can ring the Carp Society
number 01367 253959 (now also PAG HQ) and pay £6.50 by card.”
