The Coalition Against Duck Shooting used their $10,000 grant to commission Roy Morgan Research to conduct a poll on the recreational shooting of native waterbirds in Victoria. The results of the poll showed that 75% of Victorians, from both urban and rural areas, were in support of a ban on recreational duck shooting. These results were then presented to the Victorian Government in an effort to encourage the cancellation of the 2008 duck shooting season. This strategy was successful with the Voiceless-funded poll adding extra pressure to a campaign which eventually resulted in the cancellation of the 2008 duck season.
