Assembly in Madrid on the 4th and 5th of May, 2018.
Spain is leading the list of UNESCO Biosphere Reserves with 48 protected areas reconciling the conservation of biodiversity with its sustainable use. Spain pioneered the protection of large areas for wildlife management –including hunting – with the National Game Reserves established since 1966. As many of you have experienced, Spain is simply a hunting paradise that follows the best principles of sustainability.
“Hunting: facts or fables?” is the motto of this annual meeting where we hope to see a large number of members of each National Delegation come together with government officials, scientists, and representatives of many other conservation organizations. With such an ambitious motto, separating facts from fables about hunting, the Organizing Committee has been inspired to work hard to offer a very instructive program with take-home value, exciting off-site activities, and enjoyable socials.
