We in the Margaret River region can make an impact on this issue by adding our voices to those of national bodies such as Birdlife Australia.
The biggest thing we can do right now is to make a submission during the public comment period which closes 3 July 2020.
IDEAS FOR YOUR SUBMISSION
This is an opportunity to make a real difference – please take a moment to make a submission.
Only a total ban on Second Generation Anticoagulant Rodenticides (SGARs) will prevent secondary poisoning of owls and other wildlife.
Failing this an absolute necessity is that SGARs are removed from retail sale to the public by listing all SGARs as Schedule 7 poisons, and placing stricter requirements that baits be placed in a manner that makes them inaccessible to wildlife.
