Expressing Outrage about the 2024 Duck Shooting Season

Despite strong public sentiment for a ban, and the recent Inquiry whose No. 1 Recommendation was an immediate ban on recreational hunting of native birds, Victorian Labor has bowed down to the 0.3% of Victorians who are licensed to shoot ducks, rather than listen to the majority of Victorians who care about and value native wildlife. 

It’s too late to stop this season, but we’ll never stop being a voice for animals who can’t speak up for themselves. Please read on as we have provided both physical and non-physical methods to take action for native birds this killing season!


Our Guide to Physical Expression of Your Outrage about Duck Shooting Season
