Anyone who's had enough of me banging on about duck shooting will be able to
hear from a much higher authority on the subject this Thursday night in
Melbourne. Laurie Levy, campaign director of the Coalition Against Duck
Shooting, will give a talk to Birdlife Melbourne's monthly meeting on 18th
July at 8 pm, Birdlife Australia National Office, 60 Leicester Street,

Laurie will discuss the 2013 season, in which several changes in management
of duck season were put into place.  Media scrutiny  and opposition to duck
shooting became more difficult than ever, whilst the Box Flat Nature Reserve
near Donald became the site of a secret massacre of at least 2000 birds,
including 200 Freckled Ducks, Blue-billed Ducks, swans, and other protected
species. Despite being officially 'investigated', no charges have yet been
laid against anyone.

The legal shooting of ducks continues to be one of Australia's most
contentious wildlife issues. Come along and hear what most of us need to
