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 WE love Bob. Be like Bob. Bob decided he would deal with the panicked coyote by joining him in the elevator.
“I talked to him. I petted him. He lay down. I picked him up and brought him out,” he remembered.
Bob said he preferred the company of animals.
“Animals are a lot more honest, a lot more straightforward, and a lot more dignified,” he said.

Project Coyote fabulous LTE "The howling coyote, icon of the Southwest, whose sacred symbol generates millions annually in revenue, is being massacred. Unmonitored killing contests plague our state and slaughter countless animals each year. Those who kill the most win big in this archaic blood sport.
My graduate degree in wildlife biology focused on the family structure of coyotes — they are sentient beings, not rabid monsters. There is no valid scientific evidence to support killing contests. The contests are dangerous games, which applaud exterminating “them”—anyone, anything, we deem invaluable.
Bipartisan Senate Bill 268, to stop killing contests, will be heard by the Senate Conservation Committee on Thursday. Senate Bill 286, to protect hikers, hunters, and pets by restricting outdated poisons and traps, also will be heard. Wild animals have no voice in our government, but we have. Please contact your senator and Senate committee members in support of these bills."

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.
