Hi Friends of Switzer Canyon!

For most of you on this list, Todd Gloria is your CA assemblymember. I’m
sure he will support this bill if he gets some calls.
I just called his office at 916-319-2078 and asked that he support AB
1788. Please do the same!

This is particularly important for Switzer Canyon, because we suspect the
2nd-generation rat poisons that would be regulated by this bill killed
several hawks and a coyote last year in the canyon.

Please feel free to forward.
Best
Carrie




We need your help getting an important bill, AB 1788, the California
Ecosystems Protection Act, over the next hurdle – the Water, Parks, and
Wildlife Committee. Last week, the bill passed its first committee, but
your voice is needed to make this bill law.

*If your assemblymember sits on this committee, they need to hear from you
before April 9th!* Make a brief phone call today asking them to support
AB 1788 and protect wild animals like bobcats, bald eagles, and the
endangered Pacific fisher. If your assemblymember does *not *sit on the
committee, please call the committee chair, Asm. Eduardo Garcia.

Sample Message: *I am your constituent, and I care about protecting
California’s wildlife. Please support AB 1788, the California Ecosystems
Protection Act.*

This bill would ban second generation anticoagulant rodenticides (SGARs)
throughout the state, except for agricultural use or by special permit. It
would also ban the use of less potent, though still very dangerous, first
generation anticoagulant rodenticides (FGARs) on state-owned lands.

Rodenticides (rat poisons) designed to kill rodents are poisoning
California’s native wildlife. Rodenticides are consumed by rats, who in
turn are consumed by other wildlife, resulting in secondary poisoning and
contamination of the food chain. Rodenticide poisoning is widespread. A
recent analysis of 11 studies found that more than 85% of California
mountain lions, bobcats, and Pacific fishers have been exposed to these
dangerous poisons.

If you’re not sure who your assemblymember is, find your representatives
