The halt to hunting in national parks is only temporary.

Yesterday the campaign against hunting on public land secured a significant win, a testament to all the community campaigners like you who have made your voices heard.

NSW Premier Barry O'Farrell has announced a review of the governance of the Game Council, and that there will be no hunting in national parks until the review is complete.

Can you share this good news story with people you know and get them involved in the campaign for a complete end to recreational hunting on public land?

This announcement would never have occurred without the amazing outpouring of community concern from community groups and residents across NSW.

Thank you - and congratulations!

But as you know, this isn't the time to rest on our laurels – at this stage the halt to hunting in national parks is only temporary.

By keeping up the pressure on the Premier, we can end the madness of amateur hunting on public land and put professionals back in charge of feral animal control.

Greens MPs like myself and Cate Faehrmann will continue to advocate for a complete end to amateur hunting on public land, but we can't do it without the help of people like you.

How you can get involved:
  • Spread the word via email and social media
  • Download and print the petition and get people to sign it. (We've also attached a copy to this email)
  • Contact your local MP and call for a permanent end to hunting on public land
  • Host a No Hunting Rally in your local area
  • Network with organisations such as the National Parks Association and animal rights groups.
Visit the campaign page on our website for all the details.

Congratulations again on yesterday's announcement. I'm looking forward to continuing to work with you all for the rest of the campaign.

PS: We've already got nearly 3,000 signatures on our petition opposing hunting on public land, which is fantastic!

 Now is the time for a new push to up the ante on the government.
