Posted October 05, 2018 11:03:55 The hunt, which is being held in Shawangunk, in Queensland’s Sunshine Coast region, has seen more than 50 animals killed over the past two weeks.
The man who is part of the group has said he is inspired by his father, who was a conservation officer and bushfire manager.
He is one of more than 100 members of the Australian Society of Mammalogists and Crocodilians (ASMCC) who have taken part.
“It is not only the hunting of animals, it is also the conservation of them, the preservation of them and the education of them about what they can do to help the environment,” Mr Langley said.
“I have always believed that the environment is more important than money.”
He said the hunt was being held to raise funds for the ASMCC and the organisation’s conservation programs.
“People don’t realize that the vast majority of our species are threatened with extinction and that we are in a crisis,” Mr Sangley said, according to the ABC.
“We are at a tipping point, the world is turning, and I think we have a chance of turning things around.”
There are so many ways we can do this and we need people to take a risk, he said.
It’s about helping the environment and being a part of it.
