1985 & 1986
COMMENCEMENT & FIRST DUCK RESCUE
Because Victoria’s politicians refused to visit the wetlands to see the slaughter they had sanctioned, the illegally shot birds were laid out and displayed outside the Victorian Premier’s office on the following Monday morning to highlight the illegal shooting of protected and threatened species. This practise has continued ever since.
Between 1986 and 1989, Coalition Against Duck Shooting rescuers crossed the border to assist native waterbirds at Bool Lagoon in South Australia. Animal Liberation South Australia took over after 1989.
