Crofters’ Voice Heard in Parliament Regarding Goose Petition

The Scottish Crofting Federation (SCF) appeared before the Scottish Parliamentary Petitions Committee today (Tuesday) to defend its call for the Government to do more about the escalating numbers of geese devastating crofters’ crops.

SCF Director Roddy MacDonald and Chief Executive Patrick Krause defended the SCF petition calling on the Scottish Parliament to urge the Scottish Government to address the problems created by increasing populations of wild geese in the crofting areas as a matter of priority; reassess its decision to stop funding existing goose management programmes, and assign additional resources to Crop Protection and Adaptive Management programmes to ensure this threat to the future of crofting is averted.
