SSAA SUPPORTS FERAL ANIMAL CONTROL BILL 👏

SSAA welcomes the news that a feral animal control bill has been heard in the Legislative Council in Western Australian for the second time.

The Game and Feral Animal Control Bill 2018 was read in the Legislative Council last month by Agricultural Region MLC, Rick Mazza, of the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party.

The bill aims to provide a safe and regulated hunting system in Western Australia to benefit the state’s economy and environment—as well as a positive boost to the mental and physical wellbeing of the shooters involved.

Western Australia is home to ten of Australia’s most endangered species. 🐾

Sporting Shooters Association Of Australia WA Inc. President, Ron Bryant, said the bill is a huge positive. 👍

“Legitimate shooters in a controlled manner, at no risk to the public, being able to take out feral animals that are placing our most endangered species at risk,” Mr Bryant said.

“Bilbies, bandicoots and quolls are already on the endangered list.

“Adding to that, this service will be delivered at no cost to the community, being driven by volunteers.”

Similar to New South Wales legislation, the Western Australian hunting system will involve the use of an online booking and GPS system, as well as a requirement to wear blaze orange clothing.

The GPS system clearly identifies where a hunter is and where he or she is allowed to hunt.

The booking system will require participants to report back on the type and numbers of animals taken from declared public land at the completion of their hunt.

The bill is expected to go through standard parliamentary processes in the new year.

SSAA Farmer Assist

Attention NSW SSAA members. Here's another opportunity to get involved in pest management through the SSAA.Ground shooting operations have recently been reintroduced as part of the National Parks and Wildlife Service Supplementary Pest Control Program (SPC). SSAA NSW is currently building capacity to deliver volunteers in support of the program.

Recently, we rounded out the last of the reaccreditations for SSAA NSW volunteers who were originally part of the trial design of the program. We will be looking to induct more volunteers into the program in the first half of next year.

There will be a selection and accreditation process (currently under development) that members will need to complete in order to participate.

Stay tuned via the SSAA NSW media channels for announcements regarding next year's intake!
