Save California's Tule Elk and Protect Point Reyes National Seashore

Point Reyes National Seashore is home to one of the largest populations of tule elk, a subspecies of elk found only in California. One hundred plant and animal species at Point Reyes National Seashore are listed as rare, threatened, or endangered. 

But the thousands of plant and animal species that call this diverse landscape home are negatively impacted by the 24 ranches that operate within parklands.

Despite this, California officials are considering a plan that would expand ranching operations and extend agricultural leases across the national seashore. To ensure there is room for more ranching, the plan would authorize the National Park Service to kill tule elk.

Please tell California officials to reject this horrific plan, save tule elk, and protect Point Reyes National Seashore.

Commercial livestock grazing and new farming activities should not be expanded upon on the national seashore at the expense of public recreation, natural scenic quality, and wildlife conservation.
