Contact Agriculture Minister Simon Coveney and demand that blood sports are banned under the Animal Health and Welfare Bill 2012. In its current form, the Bill shamefully includes exemptions for coursing and hunting.

If you are a landowner, one of the best ways you can help wildlife is to make your land off limits to hunters and coursers. Visit our Farmers/Landowners Page to find out about steps you can take.
