On Wednesday, May 31st, Dáil Éireann will debate the Heritage Bill – also know as the Slash and Burn Bill. The Government are seeking to extend the seasons for gorse burning and hedge cutting, with blatant disregard for wildlife, heritage and biodiversity.
We have seen the devastation uncontrolled gorse fires can do in recent weeks – thousands of acres have been ablaze, putting lives, livestock and livelihoods at risk. If this bill passes, we will see more gorse fires, and more destruction.
Tell the Government NO TO MORE SLASH AND BURN! Contact your local TD and help us fight against this destructive plan! Find your local TDs: https://www.whoismytd.com/
