Help us to save european migratory wild birds sign now

A holiday in Veneto ? No thanks !

We understand that in Veneto (north-east of Italy), protected birds such as chaffinches and bramblings are shot and caught using nets. This is the European region where the highest number of animal species can be hunted - as many as 50 !

Seven species of wild birds protected by European Council Directive 79/409/EEC on the conservation of wild birds are hunted and shot. These are chaffinches, bramblings, tree sparrows, sparrows, starlings, cormorants and collared doves.

Migratory wild birds such as blackbirds, fieldfares, redwings, song thrushes, skylarks, wood pigeons and lapwings are caught using nets - which are banned in Europe. These birds are then used as live decoys for hunting and forced to live in tiny cages for the rest of their lives.

Until the Veneto stops being the European region that allows such cruel hunting practices and the shooting of wild migratory birds, we will not spend our holidays there.
