CALL TO ACTION!

26 Mar

Wisconsin Wildlife Ethic Members and All Who Care About Living Wildlife and a Living Wisconsin

Monday, April 14 at 6:30 p.m. is the one night of the year when you can make a difference for Wildlife! Please attend and take a carload of friends with you!

A call for two people to stand for Election in every county in our state. Stand up for our wildlife in a way that matters!

Registration is at 6:30 p.m with the Election at 7:00 p.m.

IThe second Monday in April every year (this year, Monday, April 14 at 6:30 p.m.) is an ELECTION & VOTE sponsored by the Wisconsin Dept. of Natural Resources (DNR) and the Wisconsin “Conservation” Congress. There are key issues on the docket this year, including:

  • Do you want legislators to authorize hunters to enter private land without landowner permission to retrieve their dogs?
  • Do you want legislators to authorize the DNR to create a tundra swan hunt?
  • Do you want to strip protection from hunting the rare albino deer (ghosts of the forest)?
  • Do you want to eliminate any hour restrictions on trapping – providing trappers will the ability to trap all night in our State parks, Stewardship lands, former wildlife refuges and all publicly purchased lands?

Provided below are the links to the entire questionnaire on the DNR web site, election locations, and additional resource information:

Posters. To get the word out regarding the Election, Wisconsin Wildlife Ethic has developed six posters in 8″ X 11″ format for you to print off and post in your community (see end of posting to download this information). You can print them in color or black and white. If you have a wide-format printer, request the 11″ X 17″ format version. A copy of one of the 8″ X 11″ posters can be stapled to the cover of the booklets (which have a bland cover so those who don’t hunt wouldn’t know what they are), making them ready for sharing and posting in your neighborhood!

Ideas of where to post them: Any bulletin board – including coffee shops, grocery stores, co-ops, pet stores, veterinary offices, non-profit offices, wildlife friendly stores, health food stores, women’s groups, libraries, book stores, humane societies, wildlife rehabbers, and animal rescues. Additionally they can be sent by email to groups that you find in the community pages of your local newspapers; biking, hiking, outdoor activity and silent sports organizations; and environmental groups including birders, etc. Another idea is contacting anti-mining groups since they are putting a resolution into the Congress Election and vote this year.

Election. We are looking for 2 candidates to stand in every county. This is your chance to win a grassroots political position that embodies the vision of Aldo Leopold… the protection of our public lands, waterways, forests, air, water, and land quality, and the stewardship of wildlife! Change the course of the past 80 years…where 90% of the citizens have intentionally not been made aware of this Election so the outcomes could be controlled by hunting/ trapping special interest groups! Represent your county and provide valued input that is truly representative of the people’s interests and wishes.

Contact Patricia Randolph at Madravenspeak@gmail.com to answer questions and let her know if you’d be willing to stand up for wildlife and the majority of residents in your county. Reverse the trend over the past decade, where the elected delegates consisted of the most avid hunters and trappers and hounders…who not only want to exert control over our public lands, but our private land as well!
