NO HUNTING in National Parks


Premier leaves NSW vulnerable on hunting issue

On 4 July 2013, the NSW Premier Barry O'Farrell delivered changes to the way feral animals would be managed in NSW.  Within this announcement, the public welcomed that the Game Council would be disbanded for good, and that proposals to involve amateurs in hunting in national parks had been quashed.

However, in order for these items to be guaranteed, they need to be tightly woven into legislation.

The Minister for Primary Industries, Katrina Hogkinson has revealed that none of these details have been proposed to be embedded within the Game and Feral Animal Control Act changes:

> No amateurs being allowed to hunt in national parks

> No children under the age of 18 years being allowed to hunt in national parks

> No bows and arrows, black powder weapons or pistols be used for hunting feral animals in national parks

>  The management of hunting in national parks will be entirely in the hands of the National Parks and Wildlife Service of NSW.

Whilever these items are not embedded, we are vulnerable.

Can you imaging having to fight this nonsense again? Well we may have to in the future.

What can you do?

Ensure everyone you know has signed this online letter to decision makers calling for legislation to be changed that secures exactly what we want:
