Join us for a community event
On 27th June 2012, the NSW Government voted in changes that allow amateur, recreational hunting to occur in national parks. This vote was not publicly challenged by any National or Liberal Member of Parliament. The National Parks Association of NSW invites you to attend a peaceful rally to help send the message No Hunting in National Parks.
What: No Hunting in National Parks rally
When: 12:00pm, Thursday 6th December 2012

Why: It has been announced that hunting will take place in up to 79 of our national parks from Australia Day, 26th January 2013. The National Parks Association of NSW is working with other interest groups and the community to repeal the changes that allow this by the next state election.
Speakers for the event will be:
David Shoebridge, MLC for the Greens
