[quote="Alteknacker"]Another environment-related petition which is probably of great interest to the great majority of us.

On the positive side, they have almost 1 million signatures :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:


Sounds all well intentioned but there is more to this than meets the eye.

I had a look at Wildcat Haven's website and it appears that it may be a charity and has a button to donate to its work. However on checking the Scottish charity regulator and the Charity Commission it is not a registered charity.
Checking on Companies house it turns out it is a private company.
