SSAA Victoria has lodged a comprehensive submission to the Expert Panel reviewing Victoria’s Wildlife Act.
The Wildlife Act, and associated Wildlife (Game) Regulations are the key pieces of legislation that regulate game hunting and the broader interaction with wildlife in Victoria.
The review will make recommendations to government that will have a significant impact on how wildlife is utilised, categorised and protected.
There is considerable emotion generated in any debate about the utilisation or control of wildlife. The Association considers that policy and decision-making on wildlife and hunting matters should be based on facts, not sentiment.
The Association again encourages members to put in an individual submission before COB tomorrow, June 30.
