BASC gundog head steps down from poaching role

The British Association for Shooting and Conservation’s B head of game and gundogs, Glynn Evans, has stepped down as chair of the England and Wales Poaching Priority Delivery Group (PPDG) after 10 years at the helm.
The PPDG works with the National Wildlife Crime Unit (NWCU) to build a greater level of public awareness of poaching, enhancing relationships between law enforcement and local communities and increasing prevention and enforcement.
Glynn said: “Thanks to the efforts of members of the PPDG and wider partners over the past 10 years, we have seen a number of significant developments and successes in tackling these crimes. The true impact of poaching and illegal hare coursing is now being recognised for the seriousness of the crimes that they are, and the impact that they have on wildlife, individuals and communities.

“However, there is still more to do, and BASC will continue to actively support the PPDG and wider work tackling poaching and all wildlife crime. I would urge anyone who has been a victim of poaching to report any and all incidents to the police.”
Chief Inspector Kevin Kelly, head of the National Wildlife Crime Unit, said: “I would like to personally thank Glynn for leading the PPDG. His leadership is assured, he has a wealth of knowledge and he has set the bar high. Glynn has taken the group from strength to strength, building and managing long lasting partnerships whilst ensuring the group is delivering on the front line of policing.”
Police Inspector Amy Hunter is taking up the role as chair of the PPDG.
