Consultation on NRW’s approach to regulating the shooting and trapping of wild birds in Wales
All wild birds in Wales have legal protection. Natural Resources Wales (NRW) has a number of powers under which they can authorise others to kill or take particular species of wild birds, eggs and nests for certain purposes, for example in order to prevent serious damage to crops, livestock or fisheries, to protect public health or safety or to conserve other species of wildlife.
They are undertaking a review of how these powers are applied.
This review is looking at the different types of permissions offered and the processes used to deliver these activities to seek to make improvements.
