2:30pm – LONDON’S SECRET SLAUGHTER by Natalia Doran
Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, St James’s Park, The Green Park, Regent’s Park and Primrose Hill, Greenwich Park, Richmond Park and Bushy Park – Londoners and tourists alike enjoy them as places to relax and reconnect with nature. The animals that inhabit these open spaces, from the more common squirrels, crows, pigeons and geese to the more unusual deer and parakeets, are watched and photographed with joy and fascination. Until recently, however, hardly anyone gave much thought to the killing that goes on behind the scenes. The very animals whom the visitors come to see are culled in astonishingly high numbers. The campaign to address the problem began with a Freedom Information request and followed through the petition stage and beyond. The story of this campaign is the subject of the talk.
