Talk by Howard Jones from RSPB - Rapter Persecution

As we know North Yorkshire has the worst record for Wildlife Crime in the UK, a situation fuelled by incidents on the large moorland estates in the county.

Howard told us of the many initiatives being undertaken, working with the gamekeepers to find solutions to the problem. That was the positive side. We also saw some disturbing footage on the negative side which highlighted that it will not be a quick fix.
