Stop Trump From Turning Refuges Into Hunting Ranges

Wildlife refuges should keep animals safe, not make them targets for hunters.

Black bear

Hi Everyaction,

Wildlife refuges are supposed to be safe havens for wild creatures.

But black bears in Massachusetts and bobcats, foxes and doves in Arizona could soon have the peace of their sanctuaries shattered by gunshots. If Trump's Interior Secretary David Bernhardt gets his way, more refuges will be open to hunting.

We're not going to let that stand.

You can help us in this fight with a gift to the Saving Life on Earth Fund. Your donation today will be matched dollar for dollar.

Bernhardt said opening up more national wildlife refuges so that hunters can go after bears, mountain lions, bighorn sheep, birds and even alligators would give people something to look forward to when the pandemic passes.

While we're fighting to save life on Earth, and sheltering in place each day to keep each other safe, the Trump administration is planning
open season on bobcats, bears and migrating birds.

It's clear to us all by now that when the pandemic ends, we'll be returning to a different world. And in no way should that new normal include killing wildlife on even more national refuges.

This sickening plan flies in the face of logic and humaneness.

We need more land designated as parks and refuges — and those designations need to have the teeth the law gives them.

Our vision is to protect 30% of wild places by 2030 and 50% by 2050.

We've got news for Bernhardt. And for Donald Trump. We're not going to let more wildlife be slaughtered, especially not on public lands, in the very places intended to give them safe harbor.

We'll be ready to fight them in court if this proposal is approved, and we need you with us.

Please make a matched gift now to the Saving Life on Earth Fund.

For the wild,

Kierán Suckling
