Trump Budget Would Wipe Out Land Protection

The budget which President Trump proposed today shows a complete and reckless disregard for our environment and the public lands used for recreation by millions of American families. If enacted by Congress, these cuts and program eliminations would wreak havoc on our outdoor economy and the millions of jobs it supports in our local communities, and will undermine cities and towns working right now to create a clean and healthy future.There is absolutely no economic justification for proposals that pull the rug out from ongoing collaborative local, state and federal efforts aimed at supporting parks, trails and other outdoor recreation needs and addressing the local impacts of climate change.For example, his proposal to virtually wipe out the funding that protects our national parks and public lands is completely out of step with America’s values and ignores the broad bipartisan support in Congress for the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF). This is a slap in the face to millions of American families who use the outdoors for recreation, and rely on it for their livelihood. Since the LWCF began in 1965, it has been one of America’s most effective conservation programs.The conservation of our national parks and outdoor heritage has always been an area where all Americans agree, whether they vote Democratic, Republican, or independent. Our public lands have always been central to who we are, dating back to the protection of Yellowstone in 1872 as the world’s first national park. The lands we all own together are used by virtually all American families, whether they are hiking, fishing, hunting, camping, riding bikes, or enjoying the outdoors. […]

Killing Animals In The Name Of Conservation Needs To Stop

Killing animals “humanely” in the name of conservation remains incredibly inhumane. Developing a culture of coexistence between human and nonhuman animals A recent essay (available online) titled “International consensus principles for ethical wildlife control,” by Dr. Sara Dubois, who works with the British Columbia Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, and nineteen colleagues representing a wide variety of views on killing nonhuman animals “in the name of conservation” ? which usually comes down to killing other animals “in the name of native species” or “in the name of humans” ? provides essential guidelines for future decisions that center on human-animal interactions in an increasingly human-dominated world. We are living in an epoch called the Anthropocene, often referred to as “the age of humanity.” In reality, for the billions of other animals on the receiving end of human interference causing incredible pain, suffering, and death for themselves, family members, friends, and non-target individuals of other species, this epoch should be called “the rage of inhumanity.” Human domination of other species has really gotten out of hand. The conclusion for this seminal essay reads: Human–wildlife conflicts are commonly addressed by excluding, relocating, or lethally controlling animals with the goal of preserving public health and safety, protecting property, or conserving other valued wildlife. However, declining wildlife populations, a lack of efficacy of control methods in achieving desired outcomes, and changes in how people value animals have triggered widespread acknowledgment of the need for ethical and evidence-based approaches to managing such conflicts. We explored international perspectives on and experiences with human–wildlife conflicts to develop principles for ethical wildlife control. A diverse panel of 20 experts convened at a 2-day workshop and developed the principles through a facilitated engagement process and discussion. They determined that efforts to control wildlife should begin wherever possible by altering the human practices that cause human–wildlife conflict and by developing a culture of coexistence; be justified by evidence that significant harms are being caused to people, property, livelihoods, ecosystems, and/or other animals; have measurable outcome-based objectives that are clear, achievable, monitored, and adaptive; predictably minimize animal welfare harms to the fewest number of animals; be informed by community values as well as scientific, technical, and practical information; be integrated into plans for systematic long-term management; and be based on the specifics of the situation rather than negative labels (pest, overabundant) applied to the target species. We recommend that these principles guide development of international, national, and local standards and control decisions and implementation […]

$1 million will buy you a hunting trip with the Trumps.

TMZ reports that the Trump family will hold a fundraiser the day after the presidential inauguration to benefit as yet unnamed “conservation charities.” (We’re awaiting confirmation from the Trump campaign as to which charities these are.) The event’s amenities include a performance by Toby Keith and a “Camouflage and Cufflinks” dress code.

“Opening Day is your opportunity to play a significant role as our family commemorates the inauguration of our father, friend, and President Donald J. Trump,” the promotional materials read. “Join us as we celebrate the great American tradition of outdoor sporting, shooting, fishing, and conservation.”

The six sponsorship levels for the event include “The Bald Eagle” (rude), which costs $1 million and comes with a private reception and photo shoot with the president; four autographed guitars by one of the event performers; and a multi-day hunting or fishing trip with Donald Trump’s sons.

Trump’s sons, Donald Jr. and Eric — no word yet on Barron — are big game hunters who reportedly love nature. And regardless of their feelings on hunting, environmentalists may have an opportunity to influence the president-elect via his sons on the matter of conservation and public lands.

Well, here’s one way to reach them.

Update (12/20): Trump spokesperson Hope Hicks said in a statement:

The Opening Day event and details that have been reported are merely initial concepts that have not been approved or pursued by the Trump family. Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump are avid outdoorsmen and supporters of conservation efforts, which align with the goals of this event, however they are not involved in any capacity.
