Minister of Planning and Sustainability of the Generalitat de Catalunya: The prohibition of falconry in the Natural Area of Interest in Gallecs

(english)

GALLECS is a protected natural area which is located in Vallès region (Barcelona) and includes six municipalities (Mollet del Vallès, Parets del Vallès, Santa Perpètua de Mogoda, Lliçà de Vall, Palau-Solità i Plegamans and Montcada i Reixac). With a unique biodiversity, it is situated in the middle of a flyway used for a lot of birds, many of them considered protected species. 

Although the hunting with shotguns is prohibited there, some sorts of hunting are not, such as falconry (which involves using birds of prey) or the capture of finches.
Sign this manifesto in order to succeed in forbidding both the practice of falconry and the capture of finches in the EIN (Area of Natural Interest) of Gallecs.

GALLECS es un espacio natural protegido ubicado en el Vallés (provincia de Barcelona), y que engloba seis términos municipales (Mollet del Vallès, Parets del Vallès, Santa Perpètua de Mogoda, Lliçà de Vall, Palau-Solità i Plegamans y Montcada i Reixac). Con una biodiversidad única, se encuentra en mitad de una via migratoria de aves, muchas de ellas especies protegidas.

La caza con escopeta está prohibida en Gallecs, pero no la cetrería (caza con rapaces y vuelo de rapaces) o la captura de fringílidos.

Firma para que se prohíba la práctica de la cetrería y la captura de fringílidos en el EIN (Espacio de Interés Natural) de Gallecs.

Firma también para que Gallecs sea incluido dentro de la Red Europea Natura 2000 y declarado como refugio de fauna.
