Here’s a good action opportunity via our friends at Animal Aid:
In December, Western Isles Council will decide on planning application 10/00468 to build the largest salmon farm in the Western Isles. It would be situated very close to seal breeding colonies, a cormorant colony and several otter habitats, and the owner has said he would not rule out shooting seals in the area. Otters and cormorants are routinely targeted by those in the fishing industry.
You can contact the Council directly at:
Western Isles Council
Isle of Lewis HS1 2BW
Telephone: 01851 703 773
