ANiMAL PETiTiONS CORNER by Alicia of WoodsEdge

Presented by Alicia of WoodsEdge

1. Protect New York's Mute Swans From Being Exterminated

The New York Department of Environmental Conservation is under fire for its newly released proposal to eradicate the state's entire population of mute swans by 2025 because they're an invasive species, even though they've been here since the 1800s. Animal advocates are calling the plan both scientifically flawed and unethical. 

Please send a letter to the NYDEC asking it to reject the proposal.  


2. Stop the Holley Squirrel Slam

New York's Holley Fire Department is back at it again this year with plans to host a squirrel-killing fundraiser. Not only is this an incredibly cruel act, but teaches the community's youth that wildlife has no value other than to be used as targets. 

Please sign and share the petition asking the Fire Chief and mayor to shut this event down. 


3. Save the Sage-Grouse from Extinction

The sage-grouse has already lost half its habitat and continues to face threats from human activities. While  they're being considered for protection under the Endangered Species Act, the Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management are being urged to create and implement a management plan that will protect these birds from further harm. 

Please sign the petition urging the BLM and FS to put a plan in place that will protect the sage-grouse and other species who live on our public lands.
