  4. As you may be aware, a badger cull has been in place in England since 2013 and was recently extended to another 10 new areas. Although South Yorkshire isn't yet a licensed cull zone - we're a Low Risk Area due to very few cases of TB in cattle here - the Government announced in May this year that they would authorise culling in Low Risk Areas, including Sheffield, in cases where TB in cattle is linked with badgers. This means we are now at risk of the badger cull coming to Sheffield. The Wildlife Trusts oppose the badger cull and will not allow it to take place on our land. We agree with the strong scientific evidence that culling badgers will make no meaningful contribution to the management of bovine TB and may even be counterproductive to its reduction. As well as the fact that culled badgers are not being tested for TB, badgers have also been shown to disperse from sites where culling is carried out, which risks any infected badgers moving away from the cull zone and into new sites, potentially spreading infection to new areas. This is called the 'peturbation effect'. We are very conscious of the hardship that bovine TB causes the farming community, with an increasing number of cattle contracting this awful disease each year. We understand the need for action and have concluded, from our knowledge of previous scientific cull trials, that in the short-term a nationally coordinated and sustained programme of badger vaccination, improved biosecurity measures and improved testing and control of cattle movement would be the best means of tackling the disease. Sheffield & Rotherham Wildlife Trust have now launched an appeal to raise funds for badger vaccination in our area. We'll need to raise £50,000 to enable us to roll out a vaccination programme, so we're asking for your support to help us protect badgers in Sheffield. Should any unforeseen difficulties prevent us from carrying out vaccination, we will instead work with farmers and landowners to improve biosecurity measures preventing cattle from coming into contact with badgers and other cattle herds, as well as land management work to improve badger habitats. If you'd like to support our appeal, please visit our website and make a donation: https://www.wildsheffield.com/badgers/ We're also keen to hear from any local farms and other landowners with badgers who'd be interested in working with us. Please contact us at mail@wildsheffield.com. Thank you.
  5. On Saturday 4th August 2018, Sheffield & Rotherham Wildlife Trust join Sheffield Environmental for the return of their Sheffield Hen Harrier Day event at Devonshire Green. For the past five years, Hen Harrier Day rallies have been held as a peaceful protest across the UK, celebrating our fantastic birds of prey and calling for an end to their illegal persecution on our uplands. The event will start at 11.00am with a line-up of leading environmental and wildlife conservation speakers who will talk about their views on the issue and what their organisations are doing to improve the fortunes of birds of prey and try to increase their protection. Liz Ballard, Chief Executive of Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust will compere and speak at the event, alongside: Georgia Locock, young blogger and campaigner Professor Ian Rotherham, Sheffield Hallam University Liz Ballard, CEO, Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust Jon Stewart, General Manager, National Trust in the Peak District Cathleen Thomas, RSPB Hen Harrier Life+ Project Manager Natalie Bennett, The Green Party In 2011, a Joint Nature Conservation Committee commissioned report estimated that England could support a potential hen harrier population of more than 300 pairs. In 2017 there were just three. There has been better news this year with a number of successfully fledged nests thanks to the great work of dedicated conservationists, but hen harrier numbers remain well below the level they should be, as they and other birds of prey are routinely found poisoned or shot close to grouse moors. You can find out more about this issue at https://www.wildsheffield.com/birds-of-prey. This year’s event also sees the addition of stalls from various conservation organisations including Sheffield & Rotherham Wildlife Trust. We’ll be providing information about Our Moors, our campaign calling for an end to wildlife persecution and intensive moorland management practices. Sheffield Hen Harrier Day is open to all and free of charge. For more information about Sheffield Hen Harrier Day, visit www.wildsheffield.com or join the Facebook event page
