cape barren geese

I AM SEEKING SUPPORT FOR A CAMPAIGN TO CHANGE LEGISLATION THAT ALLOWS PERMITS FOR SHOOTING CAPE BARREN GEESE.

ON THE TASMAN PENINSULA AT NEWMAN'S CREEK (KOONYA) THERE HAVE BEEN ONLY FOUR CAPE BARREN GEESE IN A PADDOCK WHERE SHEEP ARE PUT OCCASIONALLY.

ON THREE OCCASIONS VEHICLES HAVE DRIVEN ONTO THE PADDOCK.....GEESE HAVE BEEN SHOT.....DRAGGED ACROSS AND LEFT DUMPED NEAR THE CREEK EDGE.

PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE WAS SENT TO DPIPW&E......I WAS INFORMED THAT A PERIMIT FOR 'PASTURE PROTECTION' HAD BEEN GRANTED.
THE OFFICER WHO PHONED ME......WAS SURPRISED THAT SUCH A PERMIT HAD BEEN GRANTED GIVEN THE SMALL NUMBER OF GEESE.

SINCE THAT TIME...OTHER VEHICLES HAVE ENTERED AND SHOT THE REMAINING GEESE (AS FAR AS I CAN ASCERTAIN)

SUPPORT VIA EMAIL & OR WRITTEN SUPPORT TO HAVE THE LEGISLATION REFINED/CHANGED TO PROTECT THESE 'PROTECTED SPECIES' WILL BE APPRECIATED.

KJBIRDPROTECTION.....P O BOX 435 SORELL 7172 OR

.

thanks
