    Why are some people vehemently against reintroductions?

    Maybe so, however I still think it is a good idea because of course it is bringing something back to the UK, and even then support for other birds will never work because of persecution, which unless stopped would hamper any restoration effort for raptor birds.

    Why are some people vehemently against reintroductions?

    Why are some people vehemently against reintroductions?

    Excuses that the UK was not the same place as it was back then aren't good enough. It has been verified as fact that most of these species were wiped out directly. If they aren't brought back, what should be done, just let the UK lose fauna all the time to extirpation and then try to explain...

    Why are some people vehemently against reintroductions?

    I've been browsing sites on birdwatching, including this one, recently, and have been appalled at the very large number of people, birdwatchers, protesting against, holding a grudge against, and even boycotting organisations supporting the reintroduction of native animals back to the UK, for...
