PROTECT OUR WILDLIFE
END THE INHUMANE BADGER CULL
The Conservatives have spent over £20 million of taxpayers' money culling badgers to halt the spread of TB in cows, against the advice from their own scientific advisors. We're calling for an end to the cull. Instead we will fight for a combination of vaccination and improved biosecurity measures on farms.
STRENGTHEN THE HUNTING BAN
Britain is a nation of animal lovers. We will never support the hunting of our iconic species in the name of "sport." We will oppose any attempts to bring back fox hunting, and we will seek to strengthen the ban and close existing loopholes which are frequently exploited by hunting groups.
HALT THE DECLINE OF OUR COUNTRYSIDE
The British countryside is under threat from all angles. Fracking, pesticides, herbicides and commercial developments are all a threat to our natural environment. We will put a stop to the exploitation of the Great British countryside and ensure that future building projects adhere to strict environmental standards.
