Game And Forest Foundation A Good Move

National is welcoming the establishment of the Game and Forest Foundation, an umbrella group which will lobby the Government on the 'sustainable use' of game animals in New Zealand.

"Bringing five interest groups together to manage the economic opportunities of game animals is a sensible move," says National MP and a member of the Local Government and Environment select committee, Eric Roy.

Mr Roy is a keen recreational sportsman.

"Game and forest interests have, in the past, been fragmented so this collective approach is a positive step forward. The desire to work constructively with government agencies is welcomed.

"Game management has an important part to play in terms of both economic and environmental progress, and in the recreational pursuits of a large number of New Zealanders," said Mr Roy.
