THE FATE OF CALIFORNIA'S GAME REFUGE'S WILL SOON BE DECIDED
December 1st Deadline to Submit Public Comments
With no public education or outreach, as mandated in SB 1166, and with no noticing (other than an obscure Dept of Fish and Game’s (DFG) website), the DFG is proposing to close 19 of the 21 State Game Refuges and open them up to hunters.
We strongly oppose ANY closing of ANY CA State Game Refuges, and we urge an INCREASE of at least a doubling in size of the current meager 1,000,000 refuge designated acres—which is less than 1% (matching the paltry percentage of hunters) in a state as large as California.
Please take a moment to read these two websites (1) (2) with comprehensive information on this issue and SEND AN EMAIL OPPOSING THIS PROPOSAL to: Department of Fish & Game firstname.lastname@example.org and Natural Resources email@example.com Then fax a copy of your letter to the governor at 916.558.3160.
Thanks for your help at this critical time and for all you do for animals.
