Stop the culling of Macaques in Gibraltar
Petition Background (Preamble):
We assert that, had a suitable management plan been implemented back in 1997, as proposed by Prof. Robert Martin, D. Phil, D. Sc, at that time, the current situation would not have occurred. Our research has shown that the Government of Gibraltar has consistently failed to invest adequate resources in the responsible management of their Macaque population, despite the presence of the monkeys boosting the local economy as a popular tourist attraction.
We request that the Government commits to investing in a comprehensive, long-term plan to manage the Macaque population, on which its tourist industry so heavily relies, without the use of culling.
