Scrap cruel ATCW permit system

Scrap the Cruel ATCW Permit System

The Authority to Control Wildlife (ATCW) permit system is broken.

The recently released 2020 data shows permits were given to 'control':

  • 57 common long-necked turtles, part of the world’s most endangered vertebrate taxa.
  • 11,000 grey-headed flying foxes, our native pollinators.
  • 1500 bare-nosed wombats were killed, our 'eco-system engineers.

And that is barely touching on the surface. Many thousands more kangaroos, wallabies and other native animals were massacred under this tick-and-flick licensing system.
