The European Federation of Associations for Hunting and Conservation of the EU (FACE) is a pro-hunting and pro-gun lobbying group, which has 11 full-time lobbyists, and a budget of almost one million Euros. Established in 1977, FACE is a non-profit non-governmental organisation. FACE is supported by 7 associate members and is based in Brussels.

 

FACE has been safeguarding hunters and wildlife since 1977. FACE is made up of national hunters’ associations from 35 European countries including the EU-28, ensuring that the knowledge and experience of European hunters is integrated into the EU decision-making process.

Collaboration is key in FACE. Working is facilitated by a constant interaction with strategic partners as well as our Members.

FACE developed partnerships with a broad array of organisations reflecting the great diversity of our interests. Sharing mutual benefits – whether political or technical support and expertise, synergies that avoid duplicated efforts and increase impact.
