"In Britain .. a country which likes to be known as a Nation of Animal-Lovers - our wild animals are still being shockingly abused. To change attitudes to these innocent creatures - to put protection in place to safeguard them from cruelty - is a long haul. Based in Edinburgh, OneKind campaigns constantly to make these changes - to move us towards truly civilised treatment of animals in the UK.

A prime focus of OneKind's activity is to bring to an end the despicably cruel practice of setting snares for wild animals - which cause them a slow and appallingly painful death. Thousands of snares are set every year, by land owners who make fortunes from tourists who shoot to kill for fun. It's time to put the brakes on this unjustifiable barbarity. Please help OneKind end the cruelty of snares."

Dr Brian May, CBE
