Wildlife Matters: A Message from Brian May

What does music genius, wildlife champion, founding member and lead guitarist of the rock group Queen have to say about why you should join our ranks to help wildlife?

Project Coyote It’s also good to remember that coyotes do play an advantageous role in the local ecosystem.

They control rodent populations and, though cat lovers may shudder at this, they control feral cat populations, which in turn can increase songbird populations, according to Project Coyote.

“Nature probably knows what it’s doing,” Hendricks said. “It’s best that we just stay out of its way.”

Project Coyote Some people call coyotes "dogs" or "wild dogs". Do you agree with this description or disagree, and why?🎼🐺🔆☮️21.01.2017 at 07:39 pmLike
Project Coyote "The first bill is a reworked version of last year’s proposal to ban traps and poisons on public land. It would stop the use of traps – leghold, conibear and snare – as well as poisons including sodium cyanide M-44s and Compound 1080 collars. All are indiscriminate, and all cause painful injuries and excruciating deaths."21.01.2017 at 06:28 pmLike
Project Coyote Here's to banning Coyote Killing Contests in New Mexico. Let's hope SB253 passes! No good argument for coyote killing contests. "We ask the same question that Leno posed, what’s the good argument for coyote killing contests? They are not an effective tool for livestock management. Studies have found that indiscriminate killing can actually increase livestock depredations.

According to a study by Project Coyote, “The number of surviving pups that must be fed by the alpha parents and the number of transient individuals may increase. These factors may predispose more coyotes to depredate livestock.”http://lcsun.co/2k9R0qA via Las Cruces Sun-News

WHO WE ARE

Project Coyote, a national non-profit organization based in Northern California, is a North American coalition of scientists, educators, ranchers and citizen leaders promoting compassionate conservation and coexistence between people and wildlife through education, science and advocacy. We work to change laws and policies to protect native carnivores from abuse and mismanagement, advocating coexistence instead of killing.

WHAT WE DO

All of our work — through education, science, and advocacy — strives to create fundamental and systemic changes in the ways wild carnivores are viewed and treated in North America. Project Coyote seeks to stop the wanton and cruel killing of native carnivores, to reform predator management, to create successful models of coexistence, and to inspire the next generation to care for Wild Nature.

WHY CARNIVORES

Since European colonists stepped foot on the North American continent, native carnivores have been viewed as a threat to livestock and to species humans hunt for food. Like Native Americans, carnivores have been brutally killed and bountied in an effort to eradicate their populations. As the most persecuted and maligned native predator, the coyote represents all misunderstood and exploited predators.
