NT government backs FGA
The first of the hunters and shooters workshops chaired by Northern Territory Chief Minister Adam Giles occurred in mid-2015 and that engagement has been ongoing.
NT Field & Game used that initial opportunity to present a paper outlining a number of problems and possible solutions. “To have the ear of the Chief Minister, Ministers and Department heads in round table discussions on how to improve the hunting and shooting opportunities within the Northern Territory, for all users to enjoy, was not to be missed,” President Gavin Lovelock said. By the third workshop, a one-off commitment of $25 000 was made to tackle invasive weeds, complementing the suite of initiatives already committed.
The project will improve both habitat and hunting opportunities. The NT Government's continued support for hunting is evidenced in recent letters to NT Field & Game.
