Rat Poison is Wildlife Poison

In 2017 Raptors Are the Solution is working toward a statewide ban on rodenticides in California to close the loopholes in existing California Department of Pesticide Regulations and ensure that wildlife, the environment, and humans can live toxic-free.  

They’re using some creative public education strategies like this bilingual ad that’s in bus shelters around LA this month, highlighting the impact on wildlife, particularly owls, hawks, mountain lions, and bobcats, when they eat a poisoned rodent like a rat. 

Their Owl Wise Leader Program (OWL) works with businesses who agree to stop selling rat poison of any kind and pest control companies, homeowners’ associations, urban farms, municipalities, and agencies who agree to stop using rat poison.

Young people can get involved by participating in hands on projects like crafting education door hangers or using this How To Video, produced by the San Ramon Boy Scout Troop, who constructed 9 natural owl homes during a troop contest.

Help RATS get 500 more petition signatures to support the statewide ban here.
