In an amazing victory for wildlife and public health, California Governor Gavin Newsom just signed the California Ecosystems Protection Act of 2023, which banned the use of dangerous rat poisons!
The ban specifically targets anticoagulant rodenticide diphacinone, which is a toxic chemical cocktail used as rat poison. The chemical mix causes illness and death in many other wild animals throughout the food chain, including beloved owls, pumas, and foxes.
Sign the petition to tell the state of Florida to follow suit and ban rat poisons!
These products are so dangerous that they've been found to have poisoned at least 38 different species in California alone. They also cause thousands of human poisonings every single year, the majority of which harm children.
The reality is that many people who use rat poisons don't realize the massive negative impact they can have. This is exactly why we can't simply rely on consumers to make different decisions -- the poison needs to be banned altogether.
Florida must take action to ban rat poison, just like California did! Sign the petition now to demand change!
