Dear my friends
I sick an important help from you...it is a really shameful and terrible situation in Sicily with illegal falconers in last years....
It sems that among 50% to 80% of the juveniles LANNERRS feldeggii and Bonelli's Eagles are being taken from the nest by a bounch of falconers. We know who they are but nobody is doing anything in Italy to arrest and stop them, you know what kind of distaster hopeless and terrible gouvernment we have in last years !!!!!!! (or always !!).
So I need your help and could you be so kind to write the following mails
Don't forget that Lanner feldeggii is one of the most endangered and rarest taxon in WP
To the Italian Environmental Minister
Al Ministero dell'Ambiente Italiano
(3 different mails)
Dear Minister Prestigiacomo,
I'm from ..... (your country) and I love Italy, it is one of my favourite touristic destination, and this mainly for the wonderful nature and history. However, I must change my idea and never come again to Italy, also telling to all my friends not to come and to AVOID Italy if the real shameful problem of the illegal raptors trading and collecting would be not stopped. In fact, in the last years, a group of falconers are illegally stealing from their nest most of the Lanner and Bonelli's Eagle that breeds in your nice region: SICILY !!
It seems that up to 60-80% of the young are taken from their nest each year. Those two raptors species, are among the rarest and most protected in Europe by the EU and the Lanner is one of the most endangered taxon in the whole Europe with only less than 400 breeding pairs.
So, I ask you and your government to do all the possible actions against this shameful and totally anti-EU phenomenon. Also, they sell the juveniles to the illegal market, making hundred thousands euros tax-free and in black, fully illegally !!!!!! THIS IS NOT POSSIBLE ON A CIVIL COUNTRY...IF ITALY WILL NOT DO ANYTHING AGAINST THIS, I WILL NOT COME AGAIN TO VISIT THIS COUNTRY ! ND SO WILL DO ALL MY FRIENDS !!!!!
