Consultation description

We want to know what you think about our plans for putting into effect the Agreement on International Humane Trapping Standards (AIHTS) in the UK. The agreement seeks to improve the welfare of trapped animals. Of the 19 AIHTS listed species, only five occur in the wild in the UK (badger, otter, beaver, pine marten and stoat).

We are also seeking evidence on the supply, use and marking of traps to better inform our impact assessment.
