IFAW statement on the Conservative Party achieving a majority in the 2015 UK General Election

Friday, 8 May, 2015
London, UK

IFAW will continue to work with those Ministers we have built a positive relationship with on whaling and international wildlife trade, including the radical commitment to end the ivory trade in its entirety; we also look forward to establishing equally strong relationships with any new appointees. However, we will continue our campaign to stop a roll-out of the badger cull which has proved ineffective, inhumane and unscientific. We also maintain our opposition to any attempts to repeal or water down the Hunting Act. There must be no return to the legal chasing or killing of British wildlife with hounds for so-called sport.
