You have to start somewhere right?

Why don't all members email 
as a starting point.

I have emailed Greg Hunt. Let's see what the Minister has to say.

I also had a very nice and supportive email from John Young this afternoon who 
"is about to become very vocal" about the issue "publicly". 

John also said he would carry a firearm if he could!

If there is support I will set up a website to get things started.

We have car enthusiasts as Senators these days......Feral Cat Party?

If anyone knows Green MPs, would love to know their position, and also that of 
the Opposition.

What are Birdlife Australia doing in this area?
