Help us care for ducks during duck hunting
Last year, 262,567 native ducks were killed in the name of sport.
This number doesn’t include the thousands of waterbirds wounded and who later die from starvation, predation, or the elements. The Victorian Government’s decision to allow this cruel practice to continue once again places the burden of care on Wildlife Victoria’s team of veterinarians and support staff.
We are currently in field in the wetlands saving as many lives as possible.
The good news is that the Government is currently conducting a Parliamentary Inquiry into the ongoing viability of duck hunting. We will be using our expertise to present data showing just how devastating duck hunting is on the local water bird population and why the killing must stop.
To do this vital work, we need your donation today.
