Call on Queen to help protect last 6 in England

The Hen Harrier is on the brink of destruction in England. This year, only three pairs had chicks.

The simple reason for this the continued illegal shooting, trapping and disturbance on moors managed for driven grouse shoots.

With only 6 left, these birds have become as important as a royal bloodline. So now there are two royal bloodlines that represent the heritage of England.

From 8th - 12th August, Lush will be inviting customers into their shops to sign a postcard to the Queen, asking for her help in protecting the endangered Hen Harrier.

Lush customers will also be invited to sign the online petition to the Government to ban driven grouse shooting.

For more information and details of Hen Harrier Day on Sunday 10th August, see the Save the Hen Harrier campaign.
