INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

The Italian Parliament is deciding on a modification to current hunting legislation which would allow hunting all the year round. This would hit migratory birds particularly hard, all the more so because on one hand the number of these animals is diminishing year after year as a result of climate change and on the other hand, Italy acts as a "bridge" for a large number of European migratory birds.

In Italy, hunting is already an authentic massacre with neither rules nor control. Hunters can enter land belonging to anyone and kill. The proposed modification would make this situation more catastrophic for migratory birds.
