Background information and definitions
This intervention ensures that there are times during the year where it is illegal to kill particular species. This time period can vary from weeks, to months or even years, depending on the species, geography, and local customs. The closed season is usually timed to prevent hunting during times of peak reproductive activity, temperature extremes, low population levels and food shortage.
