Lately that same anti-voice has tried to use the exploits of their New Zealand counterparts and the use there of, Sodium Fluoroacetate as an environmental protection tool, as being the bad guy at the table. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Much of the knowledge of this poison has come from extremely lengthy research done time and time again so as to appease the environmentalist’s concerns. Most of those concerns were wild and emotional conjecture given breath via a loud and vociferous minority who in fact were, and are, killing the wilds through misguided kindness.
This link goes to the heart of some of the latest research and the most current report available from Aotearoa – The Land of The Long White Cloud – NZ.
If you have a concern over the efficacy; the safety; the cruelty; the environmental effects along with the effectiveness of this chemical in controlling pests for the betterment of all; then this is not just a must read, but it is a must download report to disseminate.
Keep in mind; what NZ does with 1080 is far removed from what Australia does, but the goodness such a deadly naturally occurring chemical does for the very environment we all need, and wish to survive; may not be a panacea, but it has no equal by all accounts.
