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!
