Pressure Groups routinely prove the most answered questions by Politics students in Unit 1. Nonetheless, it can be difficult to pinpoint huge successes – media attention itself does not always lead to or denote success (e.g. fracking)

In this instance however, Anna Friel and the WWF have succeeded in getting British oil to stop exploring in one of Africa’s biggest game parks. A fairly self-explanatory useful example!
