Aim to Sustain- Shoot Lease Clauses

Aim to Sustain launches ‘zero tolerance’ toolkits

Leading rural organisations have announced the publication of anti-persecution measures that they believe will further boost the UK’s growing raptor populations. The new Aim to Sustain partnership – which promotes sustainable game and land management – has produced a suite of legally-approved clauses for contracts and agreements that can be used as an ‘off the shelf’ toolkit by game and land management businesses.
