Wynnstay Hunt Statement

Monday 22nd January 2018

There has been significant concern expressed on social media about reported activity on the land of one of our trustees.

The biggest threat to wildlife in the 21st century is modern agricultural practice. In order to halt the decline of wildlife, it is essential that we work with rural landowners at a landscape scale. John Brown has been a trustee for nearly 8 years and was invited into this position to help us gain better traction within the farming community of Shropshire. He is a well-known and respected (retired) farmer. His tenure as a trustee will end at our AGM in October as this is the maximum he can serve. Trustees are wholly voluntary and unpaid.

We have a clear and long-held policy on fox hunting; we don’t allow it on any of our land and certainly don’t condone any illegal activity. Our primary focus is habitat restoration at a landscape-scale where possible. 

We at Shropshire Wildlife Trust are passionate about creating a landscape that is rich in wildlife. In order to make this possible, it is essential to bring together people from all walks of life. Shropshire Wildlife Trust continues to work with a broad range of groups, businesses, and individuals in order to achieve our charitable objectives.
