On the 19th February, The League Against Cruel Sports will host ‘Foxycology’; an evening of talks exploring the ecology of rural and urban foxes and offering humane solutions to human/fox conflicts.
No other native British mammal divides opinion as deeply as the red fox. To many, they are beautiful and adaptable animals who provide a connection to the fast disappearing natural world.
Sadly, those who want to persecute foxes for fun or fortune tell a different story. They often demonise foxes and exaggerate their impact on ecosystems and livelihoods.
The League believe the evidence does not support the vilification of this iconic British species and that a better understanding of fox ecology and behaviour can help people co-exist peacefully with them. Foxycology is Dedicated to challenging the misconceptions surrounding foxes and promoting tolerance of this essential native species, the event will be hosted by Bill Oddie, OBE.
Speakers will include:
- Dr Dawn Scott, University of Brighton
- Trevor Williams, the Fox Project
- Dr Toni Shephard, League Against Cruel Sports
- John Bryant, Humane Urban Wildlife Deterrence
- Dr Jennifer Smart, RSPB
