Protect Prairie Dogs

Stop prairie dog killing in Thunder Basin!

Prairie dogs are amazing little animals. They're smart. They're social. They're in trouble.

The prairie dogs of Thunder Basin National Grassland are vital to the survival of wildlife such as mountain plovers, burrowing owls, ferruginous hawks, and swift foxes, and endangered black-footed ferrets.

But under a new management proposal, the U.S. Forest Service wants to allow for more prairie dog poisoning and shooting in Wyoming’s Thunder Basin National Grassland. Not only would that spell disaster for prairie dogs, but it could doom the entire ecosystem!

The Forest Service is taking comments on this deadly proposal now. Demand that they scrap this plan to poison and shoot prairie dogs on our national grassland.
