Is this your brand on Milled? You can claim it.

Greetings, Lords and Ladies of Glencoe. 

We'd like to take a few minutes to share a bit more information on our recent drive to BAN driven grouse shooting on managed moorland estates in the UK. 
The so-called "Glorious Twelfth" kicked off last Friday (Aug.12) and thus signified the beginning of grouse hunting season. We have strengthened our stance on this old-fashioned "field sport" and now ask for your support as well as we aim to raise awareness of the ecological effects intense management of these estates has on the animals that live there and the lands themselves. 
Below is a collection of posts we've written since first posting about the ban back in April. We are excited to announce that upon last check, the signatures have reached 114,815 signatures - 14,815 more than the 100,000 needed to be debated in Parliament! Let's keep up the support and show them just how important this is! 
Did you purchase a plot as a gift? Please forward this newsletter to the Lord or Lady if you think they would enjoy it too and encourage them to sign up.
Let's Ban Driven Grouse Shooting
The original post and call to action, published by Peter back in April, gives a bit more background into the effects of the intense land management activities gamekeepers partake in to increase grouse populations on the moorland estates. This can include burning of heather on the lands affecting land drainage among other things and capturing or killing (sometimes illegally) predators of the grouse.

In our ongoing effort to raise awareness on the issue, we have compiled a group of videos we feel really drive home the importance of our cause. We have included videos from Springwatch presenter, Chris Packham, who has released a number of videos on the subject, as well as a few others from conservation-minded organisations who are fighting to ban driven grouse shooting in the UK

As mentioned above, we are so happy to find that we have reached the initial goal of 100,000 signatures to have the banning of driven grouse shooting debated in Parliament. We ask that you still sign to show how important this cause truly is and share with friends and family.
The deadline for the petition is Tuesday 20 September, 2016!
