Why this petition matters

Started by Wildlife Emergency Services


More and more wild animals are being found contaminated by anticoagulant rodenticides, specifically brodifacoum, bromadiolone, difethialone, difenacoum, diphacinone and chlorophacinone. 

Like DDT, these poisons bioaccumulate and magnify through the food chain. 

Right now, these poisons are being reevaluated by the US Environmental Protection Agency (link) and the California Department of Pesticide Regulation.

Please join us in asking the US EPA and California leaders to support an immediate moratorium on use of these poisons.
