Chris is appointed CBE in 2019 New Years HonoursJanuary 4, 2019
Chris is delighted to have been appointed a CBE in 2019 New Year’s honours list for services to wildlife and nature conservation. Thank you to everybody who has supported his work over the years. He has vowed to use his growing popularity and louder voice to continue to protest against violence to all animals around the world in the future – to shout above the noise.
“In an age where illegal fox hunting, the continued persecution of birds of prey and the unscientific, uneconomic and inhumane killing of badgers continue, our wildlife needs a voice to shout above the noise. Maybe the silent have spoken, maybe a terrified fox, a wounded Hen Harrier or a trapped badger whispered and this is their thanks. I’ll take that, say ‘ta very much’ and stop shouting … and start screaming … and I won’t stop until the killing does.”
