London Wildlife Protection on Lush Charity Pot 

Friday 22 - Sunday 24 September 175-179 Oxford St, Soho, London W1D 2JS

 

The London Wildlife Protection is invited to the Lush Charity Pot 3 day event. Lush offers grants and funding to small, grassroots charities and campaign groups that are often best placed to make a real difference with limited resources. They support small, grassroots organisations around the world that are working in the areas of animal protection, the environment , and human rights. The majority of the funding is allocated to smaller groups who struggle to find funding elsewhere. Come and join us for this amazing opportunity to raise so much needed funds that will help many injured, sick and orphaned birds and animals.

LWP members oversee release of birds

6-Sep-17 

 

Birds trapped by wire mesh installed by Network Rail and left to die, were released today after LWP volunteers spotted them. They watched throughout the operation to ensure that the birds that had survived, were freed and unharmed.

 

Network rail should review their policy, as they kill many birds through illegally closing the escape routes of birds in this way. 

 

The contractors carrying out the work yesterday were very helpful and considerate, and LWP would like to offer them its sincere thanks for the their efforts.
