In fact, there may be more than an additional 10 percent of CO2 in the atmosphere by the end of the century, which would accelerate climate change.

Tule Elk Deaths At Point Reyes National Seashore Bring Charges Of Mismanagement

Tule Elk Deaths At Point Reyes National Seashore Bring Charges Of Mismanagement | Permaculture, Environment, & Homesteading | Scoop.it

Charges of wildlife mismanagement by the staff at Point Reyes National Seashore are being leveled in the wake of the deaths of more than 200 Tule elk caused, apparently, by a lack of water inside their fenced preserve.

While park biologists point to California's long-running drought as a primary cause for the deaths of more than 250 elk between 2012 and 2014, staff at the Center for Biological Diversity note that elk at the seashore that are not penned in have been enjoying a population boom of sorts.

“Tule elk need room to roam, and native wildlife in our national park should not be fenced in or prevented from finding water and food,” said Jeff Miller with the Center. “The loss of nearly half the Pierce Point elk herd highlights how important it is that the Park Service not cave to commercial ranchers who want free-roaming Point Reyes elk fenced in.”
