Wild Justice General Licences Legal Challenge Podcast

Jul 23rd, 2019

Earlier this year the legal campaigning group Wild Justice secured a landmark victory for UK wildlife in its first legal case, which challenged Natural England’s decision to issue licences for the lethal control of birds.

David Standard from Leigh Day sat down with David Wolfe QC and Carol Day to discuss the case, and the aftermath. David later managed to catch up with Mark Avery, who is one of the directors of Wild Justice alongside Chris Packham and Dr. Ruth Tingay.

In this podcast we discuss:
  • What was wrong with the General Licences and why were they challenged?
  • Were legal proceedings by Wild Justice necessary?
  • What was Natural England asked to do?
  • Did Natural England have no other choice but to revoke the general licences?
