Help protect native waterbirds and quail

As a 2023 duck hunting season was announced, the Victoria government simultaneously called for a Parliamentary Inquiry into recreational native bird hunting. The Select Committee has since recommended a complete ban, effective immediately.

While this is excellent news, we still need your support to ensure the recommendations are adopted by the government. Only through legislating the ban can this cruel and unnecessary practice be banned for good.

You can help native waterbirds by contacting your local and state MPs and urging the government to adopt the recommendations made by the Parliamentary Inquiry committee.

Help us share this message further by making a donation to Wildlife Victoria. Your contribution can help us reach more wildlife supporters.

Together, we can make a difference.

Explore the map to see a sample of the animals that needed our help in your local area last month. Each point on this map relates to a single animal, or family of animals, reported to Wildlife Victoria last month.

We get so many calls that not all our cases fit on the map, accordingly, this map is not an exact reflection of all our cases from the month. This map should only be used as an indicative sample.
