Abstract

The purpose of this Act is to create a basis for sustainable management of wildlife by: protecting game, especially during the breeding season; ensuring the quantity and quality of game habitats through the establishment of game reserves and by otherwise establishing, restoring and protecting game habitats; and regulating hunting in such a way that it is carried out according to ecological and ethical principles and in consideration of the protection of game, especially of rare and endangered species. The Act applies to mammals and birds, including migratory birds naturally present in the Danish countryside, as well as to mammals and birds released or escaped from human care and which have established wild reproductive populations. The Ministry of Environment establishes (and regulates) authorized hunting seasons (Art. 3) however valid only from dawn to sunset, as well as method and specified areas of hunting. In order to apply conservation measures, the Minister of Environment shall establish wildlife reserves on land, in fresh water and fishing territory to provide resting and feeding areas for migratory birds.
