What’s wrong with shooting ducks?
(aside from the obvious)
1 in 4 birds shot aren’t killed instantly. Many are left to
drown or die slowly from their injuries.
Threatened species are being killed, including one of the world’s rarest waterbirds.
Pristine wetlands are being
polluted by rotting carcases and shotgun cartridges.
Here’s how we’re defending the defenceless
(with the help of some amazing people)
Our investigators captured harrowing scenes of destruction and cruelty across Victoria’s wetlands.

We discovered dozens of illegally massacred 'protected' species — some still alive and suffering a
week after being shot. Next
Dedicated volunteer wildlife rescuers brave freezing conditions and shot-gunfire to retrieve animals left wounded or dead by shooters.
Governments may be bullied into submission by the shooting lobby but we won’t be. We took the fight for justice all the way to the Supreme Court.
Our extraordinary legal team secured crucial wins for native waterbirds, setting powerful legal precedents for animals.
With court action banning shooters from key wetlands, 80,000+ precious native waterbirds have been spared the terror of being shot at in the name of ‘sport’.
We’ll be reminding politicians at every turn that duck shooting doesn’t only destroy lives, it destroys families.
Elite Australian athletes are sending the powerful message that sport is about fairness and courage, not cruelty.
This campaign was made possible thanks to thousands of individuals who know that there’s nothing fun about killing.
Until it’s done.
With your help, we will fight until our wetlands are free from gunfire, safe from shooters, and our native waterbirds can once again call them home.
Stand up to animal shooters with us.
Let’s make the world a safer place for animals
No birds were harmed for the purpose of making of this public awareness campaign. Ducks pictured are
actual casualties of the 2016 duck shooting season — killed and abandoned by shooters on the Victorian wetlands.
