Point Reyes Tule Elk Under Threat

Point Reyes tule elk

The National Park Service is working on a new management plan for California’s Point Reyes National Seashore that could remove or kill imperiled elk.

Point Reyes is the national park that Tule Elk — a subspecies existing only in California — call home. The Park Service let half the park’s original herd die during the state’s 2012–2014 drought by keeping them fenced in without adequate water and forage; then the Service shot 26 elk during 2015 and 2016.

Now the agency has plans to run the elk off 18,000 acres to allow cattle sole access to these public lands. To speak out in protection of these animals, act now to tell the Park Service you don’t want to see Tule Elk killed or removed from their native land.
