National Park Service Announces Plan for California Elk

The National Park Service has issued a Record of Decision concerning an Amendment to the General Management Plan for Point Reyes National Seashore that would extend livestock leases for another 20 years and control the tule elk population south of Tomales Point by actively culling the elk. The amendment to the management plan does not address the population of tule elk in the northern part of the national park who are the subject of an ongoing lawsuit brought by Harvard Law School’s Animal Law & Policy Clinic.
