Film screening not to be missed!

"This we know. The earth does not belong to us, we belong to the earth.  
This we know. All things are connected like the blood that unites one family. 
All things are connected.
Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons and daughters of the earth. 
We did not weave the web of life, we are merely strands in it. 
Whatever we do to the web we do to ourselves."  

- The "we" version of the excerpt from Si'ahl's (Chief Seattle) famous speech from 1854

Shooting Moose?

Your tax dollars are sponsoring a TV program about shooting moose!

Yes you just read correctly! NSW taxpayers are helping to finance a TV program on how to shoot a moose and other exotic animals. Read the full story:

Write to the Minister for Primary Industries by email and complain: 

Some points you could raise: 

> The Game Council using tax payer money to sponsor a TV program is appalling.
> This is another example of the Game Council’s poor governance.
> With the Game Council promoting NSW as the ‘place to hunt' through TV sponsorhip, we are increasing the number of people coming in to shoot recreationally over large spaces with little or no supervision in 77 of our national parks.
> This initiative by the Game Council tarnishes the NSW National Parks brand that has taken over 50 years to build.
> I do not believe this is a wise way to spend tax payer dollars.   
> Despite the diminished role the Game Council will play in managing the Supplementary Pest Control Program, I was alarmed to see that the Game Council has received a 60% increase in funding in this week's State budget. I do not think the Game Council should be given more of my money to waste on things like sponsoring TV programs.
> The Game Council is an under-performing agency that struggles to keep its own staff following basic hunting protocols. It has also failed to manage compliance issues efficiently, to be self-funding, or to report any impact what so ever on any single pest animal species from hunting in our State Forests.
