Protect native carnivores!
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has proposed a rule that would ban predator control of native carnivores on the National Wildlife Refuge System. If finalized, this rule will be a huge victory for countless wildlife—like wolves, bears and cougars—living on refuges.
Refuges are home to thousands of wildlife and fish species, many of whom depend on these refuges for their survival. Banning predator control programs—which allow for the use of cruel methods like shooting animals from the air, trapping and snaring, or chasing wildlife with radio-collared hounds—will save these species from senseless slaughter and provide them with the protections they deserve and need to survive.
This is a huge step forward in the protection of native carnivores, and it’s imperative we come out in full force in support of this proposed rule to ensure it is finalized and implemented quickly. Thousands of wildlife species depend on National Wildlife Refuges to provide them with a safe habitat in which to live and raise their young. Help us make that a reality.
