A Call-Out to All of Us who care about Wildlife from the Green Party of Ontario
Posted October 10th 2019 on Niagara At Large
All eyes are focused on the federal election, but we need your help today to protect Ontario’s wolves.
THE FORD GOVERNMENT WANTS TO DECLARE OPEN SEASON ON WOLVES AND COYOTES in northern Ontario under the guise of moose conservation.
But scientists, and the ministry’s own website, say that a one-dimensional strategy focused only on hunting wolves and coyotes won’t work.
Worse yet, it could cause widespread damage to the ecosystem because wolves and coyotes are important, keystone predators. And we won’t even know the full impact because THE GOVERNMENT WANTS TO REMOVE ALL TAG AND REPORTING REQUIREMENTS FOR HUNTING.
We need a true, evidence-based wildlife management strategy for protecting moose.
Join us in rejecting this unethical, unscientific plan. Visit our action page to take the next step.
(A Brief Note from Niagara At Large – The deadline the Ford government set for commenting on this issue was September 26th, but visit the Green Party of Ontario’s action page anyway for information on how to send a message of opposition to the government. The government should continue to be flooded with expressions of opposition to this destructive scheme from citizens across Ontario.)
