FACE and its Members represent the 7 million hunters of Europe and therefore a large group of active and passionate conservationists investing countless work hours and financial resources in the conservation of biodiversity and habitats.
Hunters are true conservationists: Hunters spent significant amounts of their time in nature; they love hunting, habitats and wildlife. Hunters are not just mere observers but they interact with nature and thus know it better than anybody else.
FACE developed the Biodiversity Manifesto in 2010 to demonstrate the pro-active role hunting plays in nature conservation. Many FACE Members and hunters are undertaking actions outlined in the Biodiversity Manifesto. FACE aims to provide concrete numbers & figures quantifying what hunters and their organisations do for Biodiversity.
FACE and its Members developed The Biodiversity Manifesto. It reflects the rigorous and active commitment made by FACE, its Members and the 7 million European hunters they represent to ensure that hunting is sustainable and contributes positively to biodiversity conservation.
