A Win For Trey’s Coyotes! But They Still Need Your Help…

Coyotes are as critical to our world as they are in my books. They’re already saving Trey and Liv’s butts in book four and I’m only four chapters in. If you’d like to help protect America’s predators from becoming senseless trophy kills that disrupt ecological balance, please read the letter from Project Coyote below. I’m a monthly donor, and I wish I could give more. I don’t want our country’s majestic predators to only live in fiction.

Four donors will match all donations up to $25K by December 31st!

Salmon, Idaho Predator Derby Canceled!

As a result of sustained legal and grassroots efforts by a coalition of organizations including Project Coyote, sponsors of the infamous Salmon Idaho “Predator Derby” announced they are canceling the cruel event this winter. This is a huge win for the coyotes, wolves and other predators targeted in this barbaric event that awards prizes to those who kill the most and largest of a given species. You helped achieve this victory!

While we celebrate this hard-fought victory and take comfort in knowing that coyotes and wolves in the Salmon, Idaho area won’t be targeted this winter, the stark reality is that killing contests are still legal in Idaho – and in every U.S. state except California.

To Expose this barbarity, Educate the public and policy makers, and Empower the grassroots to help End this practice, we are producing a film about wildlife killing contests and trophy hunting of predators. Most people have no idea wild animals are being killed for prizes and trophies across the U.S.- and are shocked and horrified to learn such cruelty is legal.

Education is key to changing the way our wildlife is treated in North America. We must raise public awareness and then change the laws to ensure that coyotes, wolves, bobcats and other native carnivores are treated and valued with the kind of respect and appreciation they deserve.

Will you help us complete this film, distribute it and continue our work to end wildlife-killing contests, trapping and other cruelties inflicted against our important apex predators? Four generous donors have pledged to match all donations, dollar for dollar, up to $25K by December 31st. Please help us and double your impact for wildlife.

Please watch my message below & thank you for your steadfast support.

Trey’s Coyotes Need Your Help

projectcoyote-sm“Project Coyote, a North American coalition of wildlife scientists, educators, predator-friendly ranchers and community leaders, promotes compassionate conservation and coexistence between people and wildlife. As a national non-profit organization based in Northern California, Project Coyote works to change negative attitudes toward coyotes, wolves and other native carnivores by replacing ignorance and fear with understanding, respect and appreciation. All of our work — through education, science, and advocacy — strives to create fundamental and systemic changes in the ways wild carnivores are viewed and treated in North America.” –ProjectCoyote.org

Two supporters have agreed to match all donations through the end of 2014, which means today’s the last day to take advantage of that match! Donate $5, donate $500. Someday, the coyotes will thank you by having your back when you’re ambushed by a 10-man team of assassins. :)
