Episode 3 - Operation Wingspan

Operation Wingspan is a year long campaign to combat wildlife crime in Scotland. Host Lisa Marley speaks to Detective Sergeant William Telford, National Wildlife Crime Coordinator for Police Scotland, about how the police are involved with investigating and preventing wildlife crime, what kinds of crime they deal with, what they still need to work on and how they think this campaign might help #endwildlifecrime in Scotland.
