Description

On 4 July 2013, the NSW Government announced that a trial recreational hunting program would commence October 2013 in 12 national parks. At the same time, the Government announced it had disbanded the Game Council of NSW.

The controls and management of the program reveal that the Government has responded significantly to the campaign opposing recreational hunting in national parks. What the Government will roll out is fundamentally a professional hunting program run by National Parks and Wildlife Service professionals. Such programs have been in operation for some time and professionally operated programs have always had the full support of the community.

To the many supporters of the "No Hunting in National Parks" campaign, we say thank you for your efforts on the ground and for standing up and speaking out.

We are still delivering these workshops to ensure the community understands the good policy the government has now delivered. We will also explain the rational and science behind the campaign against Ad-hoc recreational hunting in NP. The workshop skill teaching will be useful to help mop up this campaign and skill people for future campaigns. Be great to see you there.
