H i all -

For your information, the following message has been sent out to various
listservers from our French BirdLife Partner, LPO (Ligue pour la Protection
des Oiseaux).  We will probably be putting a link to it on our Web site
Please take the trouble to read and react to this mail. Also pass it on to
other birders mailing lists that you may be subscribed to...

Sign and have other people sign the "migratory birds" petition on
<>-"Consulter/Signer"-"FNE-LPO-BIRDLIFE: POUR LA

There are paper copies of the petition, but everyone can also sign it, and
advertise for other people to sign for it, at the web site indicated above
(it is in French only but it's quite obvious how to complete it).

European hunters are trying to lobby the European commission for it to
loosen the migratory bird directive, increase the shooting season and widen
the list of species on the hit list. They have gathered more than 1.5
millions signatures in this respect, many of them in France but also in
Italy and other countries. BirdLife International, its French
representative "LPO" and the French "France Nature & Environnement" are now
setting up a reply to this of their actions, by collecting signatures,
asking their deputies to react to this situation, and the lobbying the
European commission to maintain a strong on law.

It is very important that we gather as many signatures as possible.  It is
a Europe-wide action but sympathetic individuals from any part of the globe
are urged to lend support.

Questions to: Olivier Le Gall  <>

Thanks for taking the trouble to sign and for passing this on to interested
friends or mailing lists
Regards,  Hugo.
