The selfie. Most of us would be lying if we said that we have not taken the odd selfie for whatever reason, as vain and self indulgent as they do seem. But is choosing to document and share the death of an animal in this manner completely disrespectful or actually, an acceptable and valid format … Continue reading

Let’s Talk Climate Change
We need no further research to inform us that climate change is happening and this global issue requires a fast and decisive response. So why is the UK, a country once considered to be the leader on climate change internationally, moving backwards? We became one of the first countries to produce a legally binding national … Continue reading
Hands Off the Ban!
On Wednesday 15th July the UK government is allowing a free vote on whether to repeal the Hunting Act.
