SUNSW meet with Environment Minister’s office

SU NSW president Tony Gavan has been meeting with the office of NSW Environment Minister Penny Sharpe to push for an expansion of hunting areas in the state, including in parts of some National Parks.

While saying there were no plans to open National Parks to recreational hunting, Ms Sharpe did observe there were opportunities to cull feral animals there via the Supplementary Pest Control program, which involves “very strict controls and risk assessments” as part of its operation.
