End Bird Shooting

Protect the Wild wants to shut down the shooting industry.

The ‘shooting industry’ is a blanket term we use to describe everything from shooting estates (where commercial shooting largely takes place), gamekeepers (who are responsible for the birds that estates rear to be shot), shooting syndicates (groups that rent a shoot and use membership subscriptions to fund the operation of a shoot) and shooters themselves (the clients who go to estates or are syndicate members who pay to shoot birds).

It is utterly selfish, responsible for the deaths of millions of birds, and of trapping and snaring hundreds of thousands of mammals.

A future without a shooting industry will come.
