Our petition asking the Scottish Parliament to stop fish farmers, salmon netsmen and angling authorities shooting seals will be considered by the Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee this Wednesday, 10th December 2014. The meeting is due to start at 10.00am and our petition (third on the agenda) should be considered between 11.30am and noon.
The meeting will be broadcast live on the internet and can be viewed at: http://www.scottishparliament.tv/?vid=live-committee-room-1
A transcript of proceedings will be published on the Scottish Parliament Committees webpage about a week after the meeting.
Earlier this year Save Our Seals Fund donated nearly £2700 to provide food, veterinary care and equipment to save 6 orphaned common seal pups. All the seals were nursed back to full health and weight and have been successfully released back into the wild.
This leaves SOSF with less than £2,000 in total funds and some financial support would be much appreciated. You can help by buying some campaign goods from our website. The children’s books are of very high quality and would make excellent Christmas presents (I’ll post them to you first class and you should get them in a couple of days).
