I received this from the Coalition Against Duck Shooting today.
If you are interested in helping, please write to the NSW Premier, Nathan
Rees and the Minister for Climate Change and the Environment, Carmel
Tebbutt, at the email addresses below. Since the vote is imminent, it is
essential to act immediately.
YOUR HELP IS URGENTLY REQUIRED TODAY.
It is imperative that we stop a push by the Shooters' Party to re-introduce
the recreational shooting of native waterbirds into NSW, which was the
second state to ban the activity in 1995. It was banned in WA in 1990 and
in Queensland in 2005.
A Game and Feral Animal Control Amendment Bill was introduced into the NSW
Upper House by Shooters Party MP, Robert Brown, last week. If passed, it
would open the state's national parks and reserves to recreational hunters.
The Bill could be voted on, in NSW Parliament, as early as tomorrow
(Thursday 18 June).
PLEASE ACT NOW and email a line to the NSW Premier, Nathan Rees, and the
Minister for Climate Change and the Environment, Carmel Tebbutt
asking that native waterbirds continue to be fully protected in NSW, as they
have been since 1995.
