URGENT: Say No to Killing America's Smallest Swans!

  • By: Patricia Randolph
  • Target: The Wisconsin Legislature, Department of Natural Resource Destruction, and the Natural Resource Board

ONE DAY LEFT - Wisconsin citizens can vote against killing tundra swans conveniently at a location in every county in Wisconsin Monday night, April 14 at 6:30 p.m. and elect humane representation - find your location at the DNR web site here:  http://dnr.wi.gov/About/WCC/springhearing.html  Please attend - it is the one night that your vote will be counted for the legislature.  Please make a final push to get your circle of influence to sign and network this petition!

On April 14th in Wisconsin, the public will have an opportunity to vote on whether the tundra swan hunt should take place in the state this year. Now is our chance to save the swans -- but we have to act fast. 


Tundra swans, the country's smallest swan, are not themselves endangered. But they bear a striking resemblance to the trumpeter swan, a species that conservation groups have spent millions of dollars trying to restore. It's pretty easy to imagine how a hunter could mix the two up, accidentally targeting the endangered species instead.

Plus, as migratory birds, tundra swans don't just "belong" to Wisconsin -- they're part of America's natural landscape, and the state government shouldn't selfishly allow huge swathes of their population to be murdered for the thrill of it.

We only have a DAY left, so it's important that we take action now. Ask Wisconsin to stop the tundra swan hunt!
