The Coalition Against Duck Shooting received a $10,000 grant to further fund their campaign to ban duck shooting in Victoria. Initially funded by a Voiceless grant in 2006, this campaign was successful in creating pressure adequate to force the cancellation of the 2008 duck season. This second round of funding went towards the generation of a public awareness campaign, in an effort to secure the cancellation of the 2009 duck shooting season. The project made use of research into community opinions about the recreational shooting of native water birds, to call on the Victorian Government to ban the hunt for another year. The Coalition Against Duck Shooting published a 1/3 page ad in The Age newspaper, which called on the Premier John Brumby to cancel the duck shooting season.
