I wonder if you guys might be willing to sign and share my petition calling on Kent Wildlife Trust to cut their ties with Mike Bax, their Chairman.

Bax currently allows a pheasant shoot on his land and according to hunt directories, was 'Joint Master' and 'Huntsman' for the 'Blean Beagles', a Hare-hunting group, between 1971 and 2016. The Brown Hare is a 'priority species' in both Kents and the UKs 'Biodiversity Action Plan', due to the decline in its population. According to the 'Hare Preservation Trust' the species' UK population has declined by 80% since 1880. Bax's business partner is still listed as both 'Joint Master' and 'Huntsman' and has been so since 1996. He was also filmed doing so as recently as March 2017.

Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

Many thanks!
