SAVE the SEA LIONS NOW!!!

PLease immediately call all of your congressional reps and demand that they put a stop to plans to begin "culling" (killing) sea lions as early as this spring.
See  http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/ap/science/4263927.html and  http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/ap/science/4263927.html and  link to www.hsus.org

for more details. Sea lions are NOT to blame for the declining salmon populations. They are being scapegoated for the decline because people are stupid, and it's easier to blame them than the dams (which are actually responsible for up to 95% decline in salmon on the Columbia.)

PLEASE help them NOW. Let your congressional reps know that you care. PLEASE!

Please do call 17.Oct.2006 16:43

This battle has been going on for so long that some of us might be thinking that our calls and letters won't make any difference. That is not right. Please do put pressure on these decision makers. Remember what happened when we came down against the elk "kulling" in Tillamook. Thank you!
