Take Action — Stop Tule Elk From Being Shot at Point Reyes
Trump's National Park Service has put out a shocking plan to kill native tule elk in California's Point Reyes National Seashore, the only national park where these rare animals live.
The agency would shoot up to 15 elk every year to appease livestock owners who enjoy subsidized grazing of their cows on this precious public land. Its plan would enshrine private, for-profit cattle-growing as the park's main use — while doing little to rein in the damage from grazing, including water-quality degradation and soil erosion.
But that's not all. The plan would allow conversion of park grasslands to artichoke farms and row crops, and it would let livestock operators bring in sheep, goats, chickens and pigs — a recipe for even more conflict with native wildlife.
