June 5th every year
Like every June 5th we celebrate the world environment day, an initiative established by the United Nations in 1972, on the occasion of the first UN Conference on the environment, in which the Declaration was adopted which defined the 26 principles on environmental rights and man's responsibilities for its protection.
The role of hunting
For hunters, and for Federcaccia in particular, every day is a useful occasion to celebrate the environment. In fact, hunting has a strongly positive and scientifically proven role in the protection, enhancement and maintenance of habitats and wild species. Never like this year, this day allows us to remember and "quantify" the natural value generated by hunting as it emerged from the research carried out by Nomisma and presented a few months ago: over 708 million euros deriving from the maintenance of wetlands and the maintenance of habitat in hunting fauna farms.
We Federcacciatori are proud to be environmental sentinels, an active part for the conservation of wetlands, the recovery and enhancement of spaces and faunal resources and the territory. We will continue to do so with the ethics, respect and scientific evidence that over time have made our Wildlife and Agro-Environmental Studies and Research Office a point of reference in Italy and in Europe. Let's not forget: hunting is useful, especially for the environment (source: FIDC).
