Police Scotland is running a year-long awareness-raising campaign (Operation Wingspan) to tackle wildlife crime across the country and is seeking the help of the canoeing and kayaking community.

With wildlife crime on the increase (particularly poaching), the police welcome any help they can get from paddlers.

You can find out more about the campaign and how you can help on the National Wildlife Crime website: www.nwcu.police.uk

Please spread the word.
