THE BIRDS, THEIR HABITATS AND THE STILL
INTACT NATURAL WORLD NEED SUPPORT! PROACT PROVIDES YOU WITH A WAY TO HELP.
WHAT IS 'PROACT'?
a non-political, independent and voluntary organisation committed to coordinating and monitoring support for selected environmental
campaigns in Europe and its periphery; and ultimately, through our national and regional coordinators, worldwide.Our prime, but not exclusive concern, is the conservation of birds and their habitats.
2000, following the nominal success of 'La Petition' against an extension of the hunting season in France, a mail campaign
was organised against the efforts of the Italian MEP Michl Ebner to circumvent the European bird protection directives.
success of this relatively limited and rapidly organised campaign encouraged me to set up a mechanism for concentrated, well-researched
and limited conservation support campaigns with the emphasis on birds and their habitats in Europe and its periphery.
scope and nature of such campaigns can best be appreciated by visiting the CURRENT PROJECTS
OUR AIM IS TO...
To initiate, rally, coordinate and monitor support for selected
environmental campaigns or problems in Europe and its periphery and eventually worldwide.
...IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE 'PROACT PRINCIPLES'
- Campaigns will be primarily concentrated on threats to birds and
their habitats. Collateral benefit for other organisms and habitats will almost always result.
- individual campaigns
will be limited in area, time and scope for maximum impact. Supporters will be kept fully up to date with developments
campaigns will be based on case analysis and research; close coordination and cooperation with environmentalists on the spot
is a 'sine qua non'.
- ALL OF THE ABOVE CAN -AND WILL BE REVIEWED - IN SUPPORT OF AN URGENT CAUSE
'rat-tailing' on chain letters or bulking out of global campaigns, however worthy, is no part of Proact.
