Black-footed ferrets are on the brink of extinction – and the Forest Service has a cruel plan that means they may never recover.
Black-footed ferrets depend on large prairie dog colonies to survive, and the Thunder Basin National Grassland in Wyoming is one of the last places with enough prairie dogs for these struggling ferrets to make a recovery.
But a recent proposal by the US Forest Service will give a green light to poisoning and shooting prairie dogs in the last area in Thunder Basin where these creatures are protected.
If those prairie dogs disappear, black-footed ferret recovery will be doomed – and so will the rest of Thunder Basin’s ecosystem!
Tell the Forest Service to keep Thunder Basin’s prairie dogs protected!
Dear Chief Christiansen,
