Deer Hunting to be Topic of Talk

Ny: GM News, News Transcript

Anthony Mauro, chairman of the New Jersey Outdoor Alliance, an umbrella organization of many of the state’s outdoor sports, hunting and fishing organizations, will argue at Brookdale Community College, Lincroft, on May 20 that deer-hunting policies must be based on science, not emotion, to safely control the state’s expanding deer population while sustaining healthy forests, according to a press release.

Mauro takes the contrarian view of many conservationists who oppose deer hunting in dealing with New Jersey’s growing deer population.

Mauro’s organization promotes the sustainable use of New Jersey’s natural resources, which includes hunting to maintain an ecological balance of species that are being confined to smaller and smaller habitat areas due to expanding human populations, according to the press release.

Mauro will be speaking to the joint membership meeting of the New Jersey Friends of Clearwater, the Jersey Shore (Monmouth) Group of the Sierra Club, and the Brookdale Community College Environmental Club at 6:30 p.m. May 20 at Brookdale.

The meeting has changed from its usual location at Twin Lights Room to the Main Academic South Building, Room 001 (MAS 001), Lincroft campus. A cash buffet begins at 6 p.m., and the speakers begin at about 6:45 p.m. Use parking lot 6. If parking lot 6 is full, use parking lot 7.
