Stop New York's Mute Swan Management Plan

This petition had 4,860 supporters

The revised mute swan management plan proffered by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) essentially aims to eliminate the entire population of 2,200 Mute Swans in the state within the next ten years - this is unacceptable.

After the DEC’s release of a Draft Management Plan in January 2014 proposing the complete elimination of Mute Swans in New York State, an unprecedented number of comments were submitted in opposition, demonstrating unequivocally that compassionate New Yorkers want Mute Swans to be protected, not eliminated.
