The Insular Council of Majorca yesterday unveiled plans to celebrate Day of the Hunter on February 25 next year with the aim of promoting new initiatives related to the protection of the environment and hunting. The event open to all of the island's hunters will be presided over by the President of the Insular Council, Maria Antonia Munar, who believes that the island's hunters are “primarily concerned with looking after rural estates and keeping them clean.” Munar said that hunters play a very important role in nature and for just that reason the Insular Council opened up an office for hunters two months ago. One of the new initiatives which will come into place next year is that more posts are going to made available for hunters, forestry protection agents and spotters during the months of February, March and April. Also next year a series of lectures is to be held at colleges and universities so that the younger generation can learn about the work hunters and forestry agents do and just how important their work is. The Insular Council will also be opening up social hunting grounds so that people who do not have their own hunting grounds, have somewhere to practice. The Insular Council will be renting areas of land and for a nominal fee, hunters will be able to practice in a controlled and legal environment.
