“Despite the provision of the TAR of Catania which in recent days suspended hunting in Sicily, the regional government has reopened hunting and prehunting. From today, wild rabbits and wood pigeons will be hunted. A worrying decision because it does not take into account what has happened in recent months: devastating fires and desertification of the territory ”. This is what Giusy Pedalino, member of the secretariat of the Catania Provincial Union of the Democratic Party and head of the Sustainability and Environment Department declares. “In the past week we have asked for a suspension of hunting activity after fires and environmental disasters that have hit Sicily – continues Pedalino – to protect nature and preserve biodiversity, today at risk, allowing an adequate regeneration process. It is a moral and civic duty to protect nature rather than persevere in the work of destruction. For our part – closes the head of the Sustainability and environment department – we appeal to the regional institutions to immediately review the decisions taken that are incompatible with the protection of our territory and our ecosystem “.
