65th General Assembly of the CIC

Members, and various stakeholders, including governments, international organizations, the scientific and academic communities, will come together to listen to the invited friends and opponents of hunting and to openly discuss and deliberate the aspects of hunting, which are under attack. It might be that ignorance on both sides is what is fueling the battle around hunting.

“The hunting community must be self critical, and look at itself from the outside in order to see where it can improve the practices and image of hunting. Agreement is not necessarily sought, as agreement can be a very personal thing, but understanding and acceptance of the facts and dismantling of the fables is necessary. We will use this time together in Madrid to stand up for the conservation of nature through sustainable use and ask: is it a FACT or is it a FABLE?” – George Aman, President of the CIC
