Inquiry into Native Bird Shooting
In line with the State Government’s election commitment, on 9 March 2023 the Legislative Council formed a Committee to inquire into the hunting of native waterbirds.
We were devastated by the SA Duck Shooting Inquiry's recommendation to not ban duck shooting. But we will never stop fighting until a complete permanent ban of waterbird shooting is achieved.
The 2024 duck shooting season will be announced soon.
Actions you can take
2) Contact your local ALP MP
Contact them by phone or email, or ask to meet with them. Let them know you strongly support a complete and permanent ban of waterbird shooting and your reasons why.
4) Live in a duck shooting area?
Contact your local council and request a ‘risk assessment report'
Write to each councillor individually to gauge their views on waterbird shooting, and voice your concerns of the local negative impacts waterbird shooting has.
