Saving Fonseca's seed fly

This fly, Botanophila fonsecai, is known only from Scotland.  One of its key sites, a sand dune system called Coul Links, is under severe threat from golf course development. Much other important wildlife is also at risk. 

If you have not already done so, please sign the petition at https://home.38degrees.org.uk/?s=Fonseca.

There is also a good video at  https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=XMVAPLdOC … =youtu.be. 

I shall be submitting a formal objection on behalf of the Dipterists Forum to the planning application.  If you wish to make a personal objection, you can do so at http://wam.highland.gov.uk/wam/applicat … GYIHH0I00.

The deadline is 17 November 2017.
