Across the UK, the League Against Cruel Sports owns 560 acres of wildlife reserves; every single inch is protected by sporting rights so hunters, shooters and trespassers will not get to our resident red foxes, roe deer, red deer, badgers, otters, hazel dormice and other vulnerable species.
The maintenance and protection of this land is funded by our supporters and the importance of these acres is made evident every day. Outside these borders, a shocking number of illegal hunts take place; majestic stags subjected to a gruelling and terrifying 11-mile chase before they are killed and carved up; that’s nearly half a marathon.
Gunshots echo across the land as ‘game’ birds are sacrificed in the name of ‘sport’.
But as long as the League stands, wildlife has a safe home on our reserves. There really are no places like them. But we need to make sure these safe havens stay protected.
The support you offer today could provide:
- New security cameras;imperative for safeguarding our wildlife as well as capturing evidence against trespassers
- Secure fencing at key points along our reserves’ borders; designed to keep intruders away from all resident animals so they can live in peace
- Ongoing maintenance for our Land Rovers and quad bikes; these are the only way we can monitor the 560 acres of reserve land
