Balearean Chapter Visit

Regional Representative Europe, Norbert Ullmann, right, visited the island of Mallorca, largest of the Balearean Islands, to enjoy some summer days paired with working meetings and some big game fishing. Two working dinners were scheduled with the Top Brass of the SCI Balearean Chapter to discuss past, present and future, specifically some of the conservation and education projects the chapter is engaging into. During one of these dinners, Ullmann thanked the Chapter’s President, Prof. Dr. Miguel Estáde, left, with a personal gift for his constant work on behalf of SCI.

Last scheduled meeting of the visit was with the Government of the Balearean Islands and attending the third working session of the “Balearean Big Game Hunting and Trophy Measuring Commission,” where a series of very important points for the future of big game hunting in Mallorca were discussed and agreed to be put into action. Focal point is the planning of the celebrations in 2014 of the tenth anniversary of SCI accepting the “Balearean Boc or Wild Goat” as a separate European big game species and for SCI providing the stirrup on which an entire big game hunting industry could develop in the Balearean Islands with many international hunter/conservationists enjoying a hunt on the Island of Mallorca for a wild species whose future was saved by “conservation through utilization.”
