The most significant campaign ever led by hunters, and one of Europe's largest environmental campaigns, has been a great success. The campaign will conclude with a high-level signature handover to the EU Environment Commissioner, Mr. Virginijus Sinkevičius, on 6 June at 16:30 CET in Brussels.
With an impressive high number of signatures and counting, please help with a final push with your fellow hunters, trappers, families and friends for support.
This is your last chance to promote the campaign and to #SignForHunting. Every single signature counts!
The campaign is vital for the future of hunting and trapping in all countries in Europe by urging decision-makers and lawmakers to work with hunters and trappers for fair, understandable and workable policies. It encompasses 9 requests addressing the primary concerns of FACE (The European Federation for Hunting and Conservation), to Brussels. FACE represents over 7,000,000 hunters and trappers, including the thousands of members of the Federation for Hunting and Conservation – Malta (FKNK) – a 35-year old member of FACE.
As the FKNK has already communicated in this regard, at present, on a country's number of hunters’ percentage wise, the FKNK proudly tops the list of signatures collected. And we mean to stay on top to the very end.
Maltese hunters and trappers, besides other local citizens, have often complained that the respective laws and regulations that come from the EU, are inadequate and do not consider the unique particular situations that prevail on the Maltese islands, especially with regards our traditions, cultural heritage and way-of-life.
Therefore, this Petition is a chance for any Maltese citizen to make its voice heard in Brussels.
The FKNK is thus urging its hunter and trapper members for a final push to collect more signatures from family, relatives and friends, either on line at: https://signforhunting.com/ or manually on the Adequate Form, copies of which are also available at the FKNK office in Msida or in any one of over 70 FKNK outlets in Malta and Gozo. The deadline for signatures' collection is 31 May 2023.
