Urgent Action Needed!
Protect Tule Elk from Ranchers at Point Reyes
URGENT – Comments needed before Monday, June 2.
Please send a personal comment immediately to the Point Reyes National Park Service, opposing the renewal of ranching leases within the park for another 20 years. In your letter, please tell the park that you want the tule elk to have precedent over private ranching within the National Seashore and that you do not want the ranching leases extended for another 20 years.
Please tell the National Park Service:
No extension of ranching leases for 20-year terms!
Existing leases should not be extended at all. Existing leases should phased out and the land restored for the benefit of wildlife, including tule elk, and the public.
No "removal" of tule elk!
The "Pastoral Zone" is owned by the public, not ranchers. Tule elk and other wildlife, not cattle, are the rightful inhabitants of the Coastal Prairie.
No more welfare for ranchers on publicly-owned land!
With the livestock and farms gone, the Coastal Prairie can be restored to much of its original beauty for wildlife and the public to enjoy.
