NOM12/3 – Opposition to Private Shooting in National Parks.
14 June 2012
Councillor Mark Graham has given notice of his intention to move: Purpose:
That Council note: 1. The NSW Government is seeking to allow private shooting in national parks and other conservation reserves. 2. The NSW Government proposes to allow private shooting in conservation reserves in the Coffs Harbour Local Government Area. 3. It is irresponsible for any government to be proposing an activity which will be dangerous to members of the public and others who use conservation reserves for recreational purposes. 4. While feral animal control is an important activity, it is only safe and effective when undertaken professionally and as humanely as possible. This can only be achieved through the resourcing of professional control programs implemented by state conservation agencies.
That council: 1. Oppose this dangerous proposal by the NSW government; and 2. Write to the Premier and the Environment Minister in opposition to the proposal to allow private shooting in conservation reserves.

Hi! My name is Boy. I'm a male bi-coloured tabby cat. Ever since I discovered that Malcolm Turnbull's dogs were allowed to blog, I have been pestering Clarencegirlto allow me a small space on North Coast Voices.
after Clarence Valley Council sacked the operators of the public pool at Maclean – apparently leaving it to a local journalist to tell them they had lost their jobs.
A thought to ponder:
In case of bushfire or flood - do you have an emergency evacuation plan for the family pet?
