Come One, Come All, to the Tule Elk (Virtual) Town Hall!
Did the National Park Service really just propose dismantling the deadly Tule elk fence at Point Reyes National Seashore?! This first step by the agency could become a victory of freedom for the Tule elk of Point Reyes! Join us for a Zoom presentation on Thursday, July 20 followed by audience Q&A — this means you!
For the first time in 45 years, since the creation of the Tule Elk Reserve at Point Reyes National Seashore, the National Park Service has proposed dismantling the infamous, deadly 3-mile-long, 8-foot-tall, wire-and-post fence.
The fence traps the park’s largest herd of elk (one of three in the park) onto a relatively small, 2,600-acre area inside this 71,000-acre national park unit 20 miles north of San Francisco.
The people who put this fence up are directly responsible for slowly torturing and killing over 475 of the Tule elk in the last decade through thirst and hunger, which is almost twice the number of elk (262) who are alive today inside the fenced Reserve.
DO YOU HAVE QUESTIONS?
Join our virtual Tule Elk Town Hall via Zoom to learn more about this seeming policy reversal by the National Park Service. Is the service being truthful? When would it happen? What does it mean for the elk? Why is it being proposed now, after years of ignoring the issue? Was it all the activism, including yours?
Learn how you can help and get answers to your questions about these beautiful animals (and our years-long, ongoing campaign to free them)!
