Ask the U.S. Senate to fund "Nonlethal Livestock Protection" to reform Wildlife Services' killing program

Every year, Wildlife Services, a federal program housed in the U.S. Department of Agriculture, receives hundreds of millions of dollars to assist in the effort of “managing” human-wildlife conflicts across the country.

Unfortunately, Wildlife Services has largely used these federal dollars to preemptively and indiscriminately kill native species. For example, in 2020 alone, Wildlife Services killed over 433,000 native animals—including wolves, bears, coyotes, beavers, bobcats, prairie dogs, and many other species.

Join Guardians in asking the U.S. Senate to appropriate more federal funding for Wildlife Services’ “Nonlethal Livestock Protection” initiative, which has already proven to be an effective reform tool, creating new jobs for nonlethal technicians and providing carnivore conflict solutions like fencing, guardian dog programs, and livestock producer education.
