Non Governmental Organisations (NGO’s)
I am proud to be a dedicated member of what Owen Paterson (ex minister) calls: “A green blob of unelected busybodies.”
such as… GREENPEACE, THE LEAGUE AGAINST CRUEL SPORTS, THE WILDLIFE TRUSTS, RSPB, RSPCA, WORLD LAND TRUST, COMPASSION IN WORLD FARMING, INTERNATIONAL FUND FOR ANIMAL WELFARE, PLANTLIFE, BUGLIFE, PETA, INTERNATIONAL PRIMATE PROTECTION LEAGUE, THE GORILLA ORGANISATION, TEAM BADGER, GLOBAL WITNESS, THE HUMANE SOCIETY, CARE IN THE WILD , BIAZA
and many many more…
You may well be familiar with and indeed support many of the above, but if there are any you don’t know,please check ‘em out. I am pleased to be an official “ambassador” for several organisations, and a vice president of more than I sometimes realise . I admire and support them all, but have “special relationships” with the ones in BOLD.
My activities on behalf of Green Blob take up a considerable percentage of my time,including fairly frequent “fact finding “ trips abroad. Most recently to Malta, Armenia, Borneo, Iceland and Zambia. I am also a surprisingly frequent visitor to the House of Commons –surprising to me!- and find myself mixing with politicians more than I ever dreamt I would, could, or would want to.
