This week, the Game and Feral Animal Control Amendment Bill 2013 has been introduced into NSW Parliament. The National Parks Association of NSW is outraged that the Bill fails to safeguard NSW from unsupervised recreational hunting in NSW National Parks or other public lands.

After a strong campaign from the people of NSW against hunting in national parks, a Bill tabled last week to amend related legislation may fall dramatically short of dealing with their concerns.  

Groups protesting hunting in national parks are now lobbying the government to stop amateurs hunting in State Forests.

"Amateurs are ineffective in fighting the feral animal problem on public land in NSW; report after report tells us that," says Justin McKee, Campaign Coordinator for the National Parks Association of NSW.

"Comprehensive and strategic programs managed and planned by professionals and executed by the professionally skilled, will deliver the results we need. This is why we are calling for an end to recreational hunting in State Forests and an adoption of the approach recently approved for National Parks.
