Fit to Frack? Wildlife and Countryside Groups call for action on fracking

Fit to Frack? Yesterday a major report into the potential for environment damage due to 'fracking' was published by a partnerhsip of wildlife and countryside organisations including the The Wildlife Trusts. Speaking about the issue, Paul Wilkinson, Head of Living Landscape for The Wildlife Trusts, said: “The Government’s dash for shale gas must not run ahead of our ability to effectively regulate, minimise or eliminate the serious risks fracking poses. This report clearly identifies a range of deficiencies which mean we’re not currently fit to frack without unacceptable risks to wildlife, special places and local communities across the country.”

Further details about the recommendations with the report and a link to the full document can be found on The Wildlife Trusts website using this link. http://www.wildlifetrusts.org/news/2014/03/12/leading-countryside-groups-join-forces-challenge-fracking-rules
