Art for Conservation
My husband and I are selling our Tule Elk Prints to raise money to help protect the Tule Elk at Point Reyes National Park. All proceeds of each sale until the end of June will be donated to the In Defense of Animals Tule Elk Campaign or if you do not want to purchase prints, consider donating directly to In Defense of Animals to help save the Tule Elk.
Here is what is happening (from In Defense of Animals website):
In a shocking display of allegiance to the beef and dairy industries, the National Park Service (NPS) is supporting a plan to kill native Tule elk and slaughter an even wider variety of domestic animals at Point Reyes National Seashore. The NPS has been co-opted by animal-abusing farmers at the expense of the very animals and habitats they are charged to protect. We only have until October 18 to save the Tule elk!
Despite overwhelming public opposition to commercial ranching in Point Reyes National Seashore, the NPS recommended a plan (Alternative B), which allows all ranchers to extend their leases and kill and “process” farmed animals on site, in addition to allowing them to add even more cows, and introduce goats, sheep and chickens to the Seashore. This plan will only exacerbate lethal conflicts between ranchers and Tule elk, in addition to other wild animals like bobcats, coyotes, and mountain lions. It also allows for the growth of other private, for-profit businesses.
