The National Anti Snaring Campaign (NASC) is an animal welfare organisation that campaigns against the sale and manufacture of animal snares in the UK. The NASC was founded following outrage at badger snaring incidents on the Goodwood Estate in West Sussex.
As we have rapidly grown we have always tried to keep our overheads to a bare minimum in order that all donations go directly towards exposing cruelty. We have a network of trained campaigners who investigate snaring reports and who are always looking for illegal snares and traps.
Our main aims are:
- To increase public awareness of the cruelty of snares and traps
- To collect and document incidents involving snares throughout the UK
- To expose shoots and landowners who continue to use snares
- To encourage other animal welfare groups to actively campaign against snares used by the game shooting industry
- To political lobbying for the total abolition of the use of snares and traps
Although not tied any other organisation we are happy to work with similar minded organisations.
Our patron is Sir Patrick Moore CBE, HonFRS, FRAS and our wildlife consultant is John Bryant.
