Educating The Public About The Importance Of Large Carnivores

Ecologists have known for years that large carnivores on the landscape are essential for maintaining a natural dynamic equilibrium among species. Large carnivores also play a key role in keeping in check ungulates that otherwise would over browse landscapes that support a healthy diversity of species. For these reasons, we oppose the hunting of large carnivores, which is done primarily for sport. We will advocate for robust large carnivore populations, and not the bare legal minimums to which Wyoming, Idaho and Montana manage.
