Dear Paul

The NSW Upper House Bill has not yet been voted on (see below), but is
likely to be on Tuesday or Wednesday next week. So if you haven't yet sent
an email, please do so now.  This is vitally important as there is a good
chance it may get up.


Lynn & Laurie (0418 392 826)

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

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.

Thank you.
Lynn and Laurie
