Speak Out for Tule Elk: Restore Point Reyes National Seashore

Elk

The Trump Administration’s General Management Plan Amendment (GMPA) prioritizes special interest industrial ranching over the protection, restoration, and public use of the spectacular Point Reyes National Seashore. Visited by more than 2.5 million people a year, the Seashore’s diverse and unique habitats support more than 1,500 species of plants and animals, including tule elk, and more than 50 species listed by the state or federal government as threatened, rare, or endangered

Decades of industrial ranching keep many tule elk fenced off from vital pasture and water, and have caused declines in fish and bird populations, conflicts with wildlife, loss of native plant species, infestation by invasive plants, significant soil erosion, and some of the most polluted streams in all of California.

The Department of the Interior should reject the Trump Administration’s highly damaging GMPA proposal for Point Reyes National Seashore.

Tell the Park Service to allow the existing ranching leases to expire and restore the 28,000 acres of coastal prairie that have been so heavily degraded by ranching in the Park.
