Caring for and protecting wildlife
Save Me is a charity that speaks out about the cruel minority in our society that feel it is their right to persecute and torture wildlife for sport. Save Me arrived on the scene during the run up to the 2010 elections.
It was evident that if the Conservatives became elected then they would try to bring back fox hunting by repealing the act. It was an issue firmly in their manifesto. The Conservative government didn't get an outright majority and a new coalition government was formed.
The badger cull was introduced by the coalition in spite of all credible science stating that it would not work. They cancelled five of the six vaccination projects that were underway and regretted that later. In an EFRA select committee meeting on bTB, they recognised it as a "missed opportunity".
The coalition forged ahead with the cull. We have seen two years of culling in two pilot zones confirming that it is ineffective, unsustainable and inhumane. It is one of our key issues. The repeal was not as simple as the party had hoped for, was not sought during their time in office (2010-2015), and was prevented by others within the coalition.
