Two Actions: Boulder Prairie Dogs Need You & Help Protect Rhinos

October 28, 2011
by

Please sign petition and send letter supporting a prairie dog relocation during a stream restoration project in Boulder County Colorado.  Please also take a moment to help rhinos by signing the additional petition below, thank you.

BACKGROUND | FROM HSUS

Boulder County Parks and Open Space is submitting an application to the Colorado Parks and Wildlife division for a prairie dog relocation to Rabbit Mountain Open Space near Lyons, Colorado. This is the first wild-to-wild relocation the County has applied for in 10 years—showing our support is critical!

The capture site is county-owned land called Alexander Dawson, which is east of Hwy 287 in the vicinity of Boulder Creek. Approximately 75 prairie dogs have to be removed because major stream restoration will take place there, impacting the prairie dogs during construction.

Take action by November 3.

Please send a brief, polite message to Boulder County Parks and Open Space in support of this prairie dog relocation to Rabbit Mountain Open Space. Your comments will be delivered to Colorado Division of Parks and Wildlife for consideration during the review process.

SAMPLE MESSAGE

Subject: General Comment or Feedback

Dear Officials,

As a supporter of The Prairie Dog Coalition of The Humane Society of the United States, I am writing in favor of the proposed relocation of prairie dogs to Rabbit Mountain Open Space.

I applaud the county for working to implement non-lethal prairie dog management techniques and co-existence with our native wildlife. Additionally, I appreciate our taxpayer dollars being spent to improve our communities by creating healthy wildlife populations for future generations.

Wildlife Matters and prairie dogs are a key component to healthy wildlife populations on our prairies. Please accept my comment in support of the proposed prairie dog relocation to Rabbit Mountain Open Space.

Thank you for taking the time to read this urgent message.

Sincerely,

NAME



RHINOS AT RISK

Help Protect Rhinos — Respond to New Government Consultation



BACKGROUND | FROM HSI

Rhinos are under great threat – from illegal poachers and legal trophy hunters – please speak up for them today.

Thanks to your help, earlier this month HSI delivered a 31,000 signature petition, calling for a rhino hunting moratorium, to the South African authorities. Now the government has launched an official consultation, and we need your help once more.

An alarming rise in demand for rhino horn as an ingredient in the illegal Chinese medicine trade is having a devastating effect on these wonderful, but threatened, animals.

In South Africa alone, 333 were killed by poachers in 2010; that number has already been reached this year, and is projected to exceed 400 by the end of 2011. Yet South Africa continues to issue permits to trophy hunters so rhinos can be legally shot: To date, almost 150 have been issued this year.

As South Africa is home to more than 70 percent of the world’s remaining rhinos, any action it takes to protect these animals is crucial to their survival.

But, despite its own suggestions that a moratorium was being considered, no action has yet been taken by the government, and now its newly-published public consultation doesn’t even mention introducing the measure.

A moratorium would give much needed protection to rhinos, threatened with persecution every day of the year—please write today. The deadline for comments is 30th October.

poachers need to disappear
they serve no purpose
but to kill those we hold dear
so hasta la vista
if they are caught
hasty justice
anything less
would be for naught
