The Game Council of NSW commissioned a search of the National Coronial Information System. The purpose of this report is to provide information about deaths reported to an Australian Coroner between 1 July 2000 and 31 October 2012 which involved a sporting related activity, and are closed on the NCIS.
A more in depth search and analysis of deaths relating to persons who were engaged in “hunting” activities was also undertaken.

“Can we as a society afford to lose hunting”? This is the question posed by the authors of “Conservation through hunting: an environmental paradigm change in NSW”, a detailed and revealing look at wildlife management in NSW and Australia. Dr Johannes Bauer and Dr Tony English, the authors of this scientific report, have a combined experience of over 60 years in the fields of ecology, wildlife management and veterinary science both nationally and internationally.
The report describes an entrenched and often contrived view of hunting, despite its obvious benefits to the Australian environment and society as a whole.
The authors also expose the many unusual quirks in wildlife management in the Australasian region with its pest focus, often viewed as peculiar to the rest of the world which has embraced game management and sustainable use as primary mechanisms for biodiversity conservation and the management of wildlife.
They provide a strong case for more acceptance of hunting as a land-use particularly in the context of the rapid urbanisation of our population and our perception that food magically appears on supermarket shelves or from take away counters. The authors use the latest local and international literature, case studies and examples to illustrate their points.
Volume One of the report reviews the current legislative and philosophical boundaries that currently exist in conservation and wildlife management both in NSW and Australia. The last chapter of this volume lists the numerous impediments to hunting from the issues raised in the preceding chapters.
Volume Two gathers the points raised in Volume One and offers guidance in how opposing sectors in our complex wildlife management systems can move on, change, seize opportunities and take action for the betterment of our environment.
This report is a must read for all with an interest in wildlife management.
