PRESS RELEASE - Brussels, 21.4.2016 – One hundred and ten Members of the European Parliament from across the political spectrum belonging to the parliamentary Intergroup “Biodiversity, Hunting, Countryside” have a adopted a resolution which seeks to redress a number of unjustified amendments proposed by the European Commission limiting the legal acquisition and ownership of firearms by hunters and sport shooters.
The Federation of Associations for Hunting and Conservation of the EU (FACE) and The International Council for Game and Wildlife Conservation (CIC), have addressed the CITES Management Authorities in all European Member States. FACE and the CIC expressed their sincere concerns about the European Commission’s draft proposals for the forthcoming 17th Conference of the Parties to CITES in September in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The FACE Team in Brussels is looking for a Nature Policy Officer. The Nature Policy Officer will build on FACE’s long-standing involvement in EU nature and biodiversity policy formulation and implementation, with a particular focus on the EU Biodiversity Strategy to 2020, the FACE Biodiversity Manifesto as well as diverse issues relevant to promoting sustainable hunting. You should be passionate about the work we do at FACE and willing to work hard to increase our capacities to monitor and contribute to promoting sustainable hunting within Europe.
