General Management Plan Amendment Initial Public Comments: Correspondence ID #s 1001–1500


# 1001
Name: Edwards, Eric
Correspondence: Dear Superintendent,
I am writing in support of the free-roaming tule elk herds at Point Reyes National Seashore, and I object to any fencing, removal, sterilization or killing of elk in the park. Tule elk are an important part of the landscape of Point Reyes, and their recovery has been an exciting success story for restoring native species and ecosystems, consistent with the mission of the National Park Service.
Commercial lease holders on our public lands shouldn't dictate wildlife removal or exclusion policies. Any cattle-ranching operations must be managed to accommodate elk and other native wildlife, and shouldn't harm habitat for endangered species.
I also urge you to reject any conversion of national park lands to row crops or expansion of commercial livestock farming to introduce sheep, goats, turkeys, chickens or pigs. This would create conflicts with predators and degrade wildlife habitat and water quality.
The Park Service's amendment to the General Management Plan should prioritize protecting the natural values of Point Reyes National Seashore.
Sincerely,

I support the free-roaming tule elk herds at Point Reyes National Seashore. I have seen these herds and it is wonderful to see them at Point Reyes! Here in Humboldt County we are very proud of our elk and take trips at least once a year to their home grounds near the Redwood National Forest to see them. They are such unique and beautiful animals!
These Tule Elk are a success story for restoring native species and ecosystems consistent with the work of the National Park Service.
I encourage and ask you to reject any conversion of the national park lands to row crops or the expansion of commercial livestock farming. This would create conflicts and degrade wildlife habitat and water quality.
Let Nature have a chance!

I also urge you to reject any conversion of national park lands to row crops or expansion of commercial livestock farming to introduce sheep, goats, turkeys, chickens or pigs. This would create conflicts with predators and degrade wildlife habitat and water quality.

Correspondence: I support having protection for the Elk at Point Reyes. I do not support the right of cattle to exclude the Elk. Private ranchers have no business getting private leases in National Parks in the first place. When our outstanding Republican President, Teddy Roosevelt, established the National Park System, he did it to protect OUR PUBLIC LANDS and NATIVE ANIMALS and PLANTS. I don't think he intended to protect our national heritage only when it did not cost any business of any kind from making more money. Please support the Elk in this matter and not allow them to be added to the rapidly growing list of extinct species. They have no other place to live. Cattle have almost every spot in the entire western United States where I was born and have lived for 45 years. Cattle already graze all our national forests, BLM lands, most if not all National Monuments, and probably far more land in National Parks than I know. We should be able to keep cattle off at least a little land.

Correspondence: Dear Superintendent,
I am writing in support of the free-roaming tule elk herds at Point Reyes National Seashore, and I object to any fencing, removal, sterilization or killing of elk in the park. Tule elk are an important part of the landscape of Point Reyes, and their recovery has been an exciting success story for restoring native species and ecosystems, consistent with the mission of the National Park Service.
Commercial lease holders on our public lands shouldn't dictate wildlife removal or exclusion policies. Any cattle-ranching operations must be managed to accommodate elk and other native wildlife, and shouldn't harm habitat for endangered species.
I also urge you to reject any conversion of national park lands to row crops or expansion of commercial livestock farming to introduce sheep, goats, turkeys, chickens or pigs. This would create conflicts with predators and degrade wildlife habitat and water quality.
The Park Service's amendment to the General Management Plan should prioritize protecting the natural values of Point Reyes National Seashore.
Why is it that the very agency that is supposed to protect the elk are the ones that want to kill them?
Sincerely

Correspondence: It is amazing to have such creatures as Tule Elk at Point Reyes, so close to the urban bay area. Yet this is their ancestral home, and so it should remain. Protecting the Tule Elk, and in sufficient numbers to preserve their genetic diversity, should be a top priority for the park service. Domestic animals or crops should never take priority over protecting this inspiring wild species.
It should not take a court order to choose land use that protects the Tule Elk. The public interest, administered by the NPS, should have a clear choice to protect our wild heritage.
Among the options you review, please include the option of reducing or eliminating cattle within Point Reyes.

Correspondence: We have seen Tule elk both in the southern Central Valley at their small refuge, and at Point Reyes National Park. As a native species to California they were decimated by previous private and public actions. I am appalled and angered that the NPS has already engaged in actions to drastically reduce the number of Tule elk in Point Reyes National Park. It is a national park, as such it is supposed to exist as a protected area for current and future generations of Americans to enjoy.
No policies should be enacted that adversely impacts the natural flora or fauna. That would include phasing out all commercial uses of the natural resources. To protect all wildlife interests over any commercial interests in the interim. In our national parks no wildlife should be excluded from our land so cattle can graze.
There should be no conversion of our national parks into farming areas or withdrawal from our free access. Such conversion is contrary to the very purpose of the national park system.
Protect and enhance Point Reyes as a sanctuary for the Tule Elk. They have already been reduced to dangerous levels.

Sincerely,
Background
The National Park Service is updating its park planning and may kill and/or remove elk from Point Reyes at the request of ranchers who enjoy private cattle grazing leases in the park. The Park Service allowed half the park's original elk herd to die during the 2012-2014 drought by fencing them in, and it shot 26 elk in 2015 and 2016. Now it has plans to run elk off of 18,000 acres to allow cattle sole access to these public lands.
The Park Service is also considering allowing conversion of grasslands and wildlife habitat at Point Reyes to artichoke farms and other row crops. The public would lose access to this land, and conversion would destroy wildlife habitat. Also on the table is allowing ranchers to raise sheep, goats, turkeys, chickens and pigs in the park, a disastrous plan that would lead to killing of the park's coyotes and bobcats.
Tell Park Service officials that 1) you object to the removal of any tule elk from their native land, 2) they shouldn't allow row crops or new commercial animal farming, and 3) any cattle ranching operations must be managed to accommodate elk and other native wildlife.
You can also comment on what levels of cattle ranching are appropriate for Point Reyes National Seashore. Based on the Center's legal settlement with the Park Service, the agency must consider management alternatives that would remove all cattle ranching from the park, remove all dairy cattle operations, or reduce existing ranching operations.

I have ridden through this estate on several bike tours down the California coast and it is always a pleasure to see wildlife free and roaming wild. As habitats are shrinking, we need to protect them and their inhabitants...

Correspondence: Dear Superintendent,
I am writing in support of the free-roaming tule elk herds at Point Reyes National Seashore, and I object to any fencing, removal, sterilization or killing of elk in the park. The Park Service already allowed half of the park's original elk herd to die during the 2012-2014 drought by fencing them in, and it shot 26 elk in 2015 and 2016. Tule elk are an important part of the landscape of Point Reyes. Their recovery has been an exciting success story for restoring native species and ecosystems, and is consistent with the mission of the National Park Service. The tule elk deserve much better treatment than they have gotten, and it is time for us to face that fact and do the right thing.
Commercial lease holders on our public lands should not dictate wildlife removal or exclusion policies! These lands belong to the public, after all. Any cattle-ranching operations must be managed to accommodate elk and other native wildlife, and shouldn't harm habitat for endangered species. It would actually be better to end cattle ranching and dairy operations in this area altogether and let the native species thrive - - as they were meant to do.
Please also reject any conversion of national park lands to row crops or expansion of commercial livestock farming to introduce sheep, goats, turkeys, chickens or pigs. The public would lose access to this land, and conversion would destroy wildlife habitat. The presence of livestock would create conflicts with predators, leading to the killing of the park's coyotes and bobcats. Those predators belong on this land and the livestock does not! The presence of the farms would degrade wildlife habitat and water quality in general.
The Park Service's amendment to the General Management Plan should prioritize protecting the natural values of Point Reyes National Seashore. I have been very fortunate and have enjoyed many beautiful hikes and camping trips in this area. I want future generations (of humans and of the area's wildlife) to be able to see and experience this natural gem. It should not be sacrificed in order to satisfy the greed of a few individuals and companies.
Very truly yours,
Valerie D. Face

I now live in Oregon, but had lived in the S.F. Bay area for 37 years, so I know the Point Reyes area very well. It is an area with rolling hills, good weather, and space for the elk to live, and there is no reason for them to not continue living in that beautiful environment just as they are. Those precious elk deserve our protection, no hunting allowed. We humans must preserve our wildlife, and maintain the balances in nature.

It is always a treat for me to visit Point Reyes National Seashore. I am deeply concerned about the proposal to limit the Tule elk because I support free-roaming tule elk herds at Point Reyes National Seashore. I object to any fencing, removal, sterilization or killing of elk in the park. Tule elk are now an important part of the landscape of Point Reyes. Their recovery has been an exciting success story for restoring native species and ecosystems, consistent with the mission of the National Park Service.
Commercial lease holders on our public lands should NOT dictate wildlife removal or exclusion policies. All cattle-ranching operations must be managed to accommodate elk and other native wildlife, and shouldn't harm habitat for endangered species.
I'm also concerned about the possibility of other agricultural practices expanding in the park. So I urge you to reject any conversion of national park lands to row crops or expansion of commercial livestock farming to introduce sheep, goats, turkeys, chickens or pigs. This would create unnecessary conflicts with predators, degrade wildlife habitat and harm water quality.

A year ago I visited Point Reyes for the first time and was wowed by the diverse habitat that it encompasses. Unfortunately, my husband I and didn't have time to explore much of the park, but do look forward to visiting again.
I particularly value our nationally protected parks for the wildlife and the gorgeous habitats the parks encompass. Because of that, the mission of protecting both wildlife and habitat are crucially important. As I understand it, our National Parks are supposed to place a priority on those needs, not the needs of industries, including ranching. So I fully support the free-roaming tule elk herds at Point Reyes National Seashore, and I object to any fencing, removal, sterilization or killing of elk in the park. Tule elk are an important part of the landscape of Point Reyes, and their recovery has been an exciting success story for restoring native species and ecosystems, consistent with the mission of the National Park Service.

Correspondence: I am writing to express my strong opposition to the killing, removing, sterilization or fencing of any Tule Elk in the Point Reyes National Seashore. This national park is the only place where Tule Elk can be seen by the public.
Years ago my husband and I visited Point Reyes and in the distance we could see the elk. They are magnificent creatures and this native species deserves to be free roaming and protected. The fact that they are to be removed to accommodate cattle ranching operations is a contradiction to the Park Service's mission. Point Reyes is the public's land and should not be used as grasslands for cattle. Nor should this land be used for farming, which would destroy the natural wildlife habitat. Our national parks should be for the enjoyment and benefit to the public and for the native flora and fauna.

I am writing in support of the free-roaming tule elk herds at Point Reyes National Seashore, and I object to any fencing, removal, sterilization or killing of elk in the park. Tule elk are an important part of the landscape of Point Reyes, and their recovery has been an exciting success story for restoring native species and ecosystems, consistent with the mission of the National Park Service.
Commercial lease holders on our public lands shouldn't dictate wildlife removal or exclusion policies. Any cattle-ranching operations must be managed to accommodate elk and other native wildlife, and shouldn't harm habitat for endangered species.
I also urge you to reject any conversion of national park lands to row crops or expansion of commercial livestock farming to introduce sheep, goats, turkeys, chickens or pigs. This would create conflicts with predators and degrade wildlife habitat and water quality.
The Park Service's amendment to the General Management Plan should prioritize protecting the natural values of Point Reyes National Seashore.

Tule elk have become an important part of the landscape of Point Reyes, and their recovery has been an exciting success story for restoring native species and ecosystems, consistent with the mission of the National Park Service. I remember well my excitement on seeing the elk for the first time.
Commercial lease holders on our public lands shouldn't dictate wildlife removal or exclusion policies. Any cattle-ranching operations must be managed to accommodate elk and other native wildlife, and shouldn't harm habitat for endangered species. Cattle ranching operations should not have priority over the public's enjoyment of these magnificent creatures. There are so few other places were seeing elk is possible. There are already many cattle available for viewing on the drive to the Point Reyes Lighthouse should anyone so desire and no need to eliminate the elk for the benefit of a greedy few.
I also urge you to reject any conversion of national park lands to row crops or expansion of commercial livestock farming to introduce sheep, goats, turkeys, chickens or pigs. This would create conflicts with predators and degrade wildlife habitat and water quality, as well as robbing citizens of the experience of these majestic wild lands and creatures that live therein.

Correspondence: I am upset to learn that tule elk in Point Reyes National Seashore Park are being managed to accommodate cattle grazing or other economic activities in the park. This is wrong. I've been to Point Reyes many times and it is an incredibly unique place in the park system. It should not be compromised so that people can make money off the park. At the same time, killing the elk or letting them die under restricting conditions goes against fundamental wildlife management rules and goals.
I am not against agriculture, but a lot of agriculture in the West is difficult and often marginal in value. Trying to squeeze too much out of wild and generally arid lands is pointless and is often just a way of trying to keep operations going that have only existed a little over 100 years. The elk and Native Americans have been around much longer. If you want to raise cattle, doi it someplace that is green 12 months a year, which is true of much of the U.S.

Name: Thomasson, Catherine
Correspondence: Dear Superintendent,
I have visited Point Reyes National Seashore. It is a truly unique location and ecosystem from the rest of California geologically. It is currently supporting Tule elk a unique species critical to the ecosystem. I appreciate the efforts that have gone into restoring this native species and preserving the ecosystem that supports it.
Farmers and ranchers have a role in our ecosystem too. I eat food as do we all. However, there is more than enough ranchland and farmland on private property to provide us with our food. Cattle grazing is extremely damaging to native ecosystems due to trampling of stream beds. Many times they are allowed to overgraze. This unique ecosystem is not needed to support cattle. I personally have stopped eating all beef and limited my dairy intake because of the extreme impact this species has on climate change- -producing prodigious amounts of methane and using an amazing amount of water.
Tule elk should not be cordoned off or removed from this native habitat. Further elk killing at this time is highly objectionable. I object to any cattle grazing on this site and feel that all cattle grazing on national lands needs further evaluation as we need to prepare and adapt to more drought due to climate change.
Having worked on the very complex issues in the Klamath Basin, i must say that it is easier to not allow the initiation of human crop production on national land rather than stop it once it has been allowed. many private croplands went fallow during the major drought. Intact ecosystems such as the Point Reyes National Seashore are much more likely to be stable and survive and protect the coast for other uses including tourism without introduction of altered use. Thus you must not allow any of the national park land to grow row cropsor any expansion of commercial livestock.
Point Reyes National Seashore is a national treasure. Unique in birding, plants and animals it should be preserved intact for tourism and ecosystem preservation.

Any cattle should be subordinate to the elk's rights to live as nature intended; no other livestock, nor any commercial farming, should be permitted. It is vital that habitat for wildlife, and especially endangered species, be monitored and maintained in its natural state.
Please do everything possible to keep Point Reyes as close as possible to its historical natural state.

Farmers and ranchers who wish to farm animals should do so on their own land. To allow farmers to grow row crops or expand commercial livestock farming to introduce sheep, goats, turkeys, chickens or pigs would create conflicts with predators and degrade wildlife habitat and water quality.
This is not what the park land is for. We the People pay our taxes for these lands and they are not to be used as a subsidy for farming. They should be for the wildlife who make the lands their home.

Correspondence: Point Reyes is the national park that tule elk - a subspecies existing only in California - call home. The Park Service let half the park's original herd die during the state's 2012-2014 drought by keeping them fenced in without adequate water and forage; then the Service shot 26 elk during 2015 and 2016. This was heartless, cruel, and unnecessary.
PLEASE DO NOT run the elk off 18,000 acres to allow cattle sole access to these public lands. I do not want to see tule elk killed or removed from their native land. The cattle can graze somewhere else. We must protect the tule elk and their natural habitat.

Reyes an exception and leave tule elk to live the way they have for millennia. By no means should you expand agriculture on the national park! Instead, find ways to reduce cattle and other impacts while respecting the needs of local communities. Buy-out, compensation,and income from recreation are options to be considered.

Correspondence: I am writing to you today to voice my opposition to the proposed slaughter of elk near Point Reyes Park. Frankly, I am appalled that anyone would even consider this as a viable option for managing wildlife. This type of thinking is common for the blood thirsty and cold-hearted people who populate the current administration, but I expect much better from the proud men and women who protect and steward our Parks. Do not let yourselves be corrupted and led astray by the casual violence and human-centredness of Trump and his supporters. Put our public lands and wilderness areas and the creatures that live in them on a high shelf, out of reach of those who care little for them beyond what they can exploit for their own benefit. Let us listen closely to that still small voice which calls us to a higher place. Thank you.

Seeing the elk is a big part of my visits to Pt Reyes. They tell me that there is an ecosystem there that supports them and of which they are a part. The ranches not so much, other than their historical interest. If the Park Service were to attack the elk it wold make me feel that I can't trust NPS to take care of the public lands and instead of a thrill at seeing the elk, I would feel sadness and probably stop visiting Pt Reyes.

I have visited the Pt. Reyes National Seashore and consider it a jewel of the national park system. Therefore, I am alarmed at some proposed actions that would degrade the wild and recreational value of the Seashore. Specifically, I oppose letting cattle ranches dictate any land uses; please defend the Tule Elk and remove cattle.
Second, do not allow any row crops or inclusion of domestic animals on national seashore lands; these are simply not compatible with the purposes of NPS nor are they in the public interest.
I would like you to concentrate on removing non-native plants and animals and restoring the ecosystems of the lands at Pt. Reyes.

Tule elk are an important part of the landscape of Point Reyes, and their recovery has been a success for restoring native species and ecosystems, consistent with the mission of the National Park Service.
Commercial lease holders on our public lands must not dictate wildlife removal or exclusion policies. Any cattle-ranching operations must be managed to accommodate elk and other native wildlife, and must not harm habitat for endangered species.
I urge you to reject any conversion of national park lands to row crops or expansion of commercial livestock farming to introduce sheep, goats, turkeys, chickens or pigs. This would create conflicts with predators and degrade wildlife habitat and water quality.
The Park Service's amendment to the General Management Plan must prioritize protecting the natural values of Point Reyes National Seashore.
Sincerely,

Correspondence: I have visited Point Reyes and seen the Tule Elk. Point Reyes is their home, and it must be a preserved habitat for them. In the 1970s when our government listened to the people, and we all worked hard to restore habitats and reintroduce species to their native homes, we were proud of our environmental successes. The Tule Elk herds of Point Reyes were one of those success stories. The National Park Service was front and center in this effort, and shared the story with pride. It is devastating to me that this effort has not only been forgotten, but now the National Park Service is part of the killing campaign being waged against the Tule Elk.
When the Tule Elk was reintroduced to Point Reyes, it was a commitment made by US citizens to protect the Tule Elk and their habitat, that commitment should stand. The Tule Elk and Point Reyes should not be shared, divided, or taken over by private interests of any kind. No farming, grazing, or any invasion of any kind should be permitted on these public lands. Every care and precaution to protect the Tule Elk and their habitat should be taken.
Visitors like me come to Point Reyes for the incredible views and a hopeful glimpse of the Tule Elk herds. We share with our children the struggle to save endangered wildlife and beautiful natural landscapes. It gives me pride that I live in a place that has these values, and I am appalled that they seem to be slipping away. I grieve for the animals that have perished at the hands of their keepers, and it is with great shame that I explain to my daughter how selfishness and greed may bring harm and devastation to the Tule Elk herds and their Point Reyes home. Please, do not waste decades of effort, and do not betray people like me who grew up believing we could respect our environment and all creatures living it.

Correspondence: .I urge the park service to continue to allow free roaming tule elk within Point Reyes National Seashore. I oppose any constraints on the population such as fencing, removal or sterilization. I am particularly opposed to killing to reduce their numbers.
I find it disturbing that the park service would want to remove a native species from the Point Reyes ecosystem. It would seem to be counter to the mission of protecting and preserving wildiife within the park boundaries.
It is particularly galling that commercial lease holders who using our public lands, at very favorable lease rates, would tell the park service how to manage the public's wildlife! Who is in charge there?
Cattle ranching operations within the seashore MUST be managed so as to benefit and protect the elk and other native wildlife without harm to endangered species or their habitat. Complying might require a reduction in the size and scope of the ranching operations. This is, after all, a public park whose mission is to protect the wildlife.
Protecting the park environment also means no conversion of public park lands to crops or increasing livestock grazing, including sheep, goats, etc. These animals are certain to have conflicts with predators as well as degrading habitat and water quality.
The Park Service's amendment to the General Management Plan should prioritize protecting the natural values of Point Reyes National Seashore. Point Reyes National Seashore MUST not become primarily a ranching and farming operation, with public use and enjoyment as an afterthought

As a frequent visitor to the Point Reyes National Seashore, I am writing in support of the free-roaming tule elk herds at Point Reyes National Seashore. I object to any fencing, removal, sterilization or killing of elk in the park. Tule elk are an important part of the landscape of Point Reyes, and their recovery has been an exciting success story for restoring native species and ecosystems, consistent with the mission of the National Park Service.

In recent years I have observed large areas of habitat devastation at Point Reyes from cattle feed lots. I've seen piles of manure along bluffs leading to sensitive wetlands - when the rain starts, so does the runoff. Areas where I frequently would see native bobcats and coyotes are now overrun with cattle. I can't imagine the damage if the area were further opened to other types of farming or ranching.

Please consider supporting the future of a healthy PRNS teeming with its natural wildlife, for our children and their children.
Do you want them to see cows and pigs roaming the Park, or would you rather they see the Tule Elk, as well as the other indigenous creatures living in the Park and surrounding areas today?
Always remember... Corporations are not people, and they have no compassion for anything except their own profit margins.

Control cattle farming as it disturbs the natural plac. This is wild country and it should remain to regulate itself. Leave the area as is and let nature take care of itself.
We need more wilderness not less. The only way we are going to save nature for the mistakes that we have made is create more natural places, recycle and let nature heal.

I am writing in support of the free-roaming tule elk herds at Point Reyes National Seashore and in objection to any fencing, removal, sterilization or killing of elk in the park. Point Reyes is the national park that tule elk - a subspecies existing only in California - call home. They are a critical part of the ecosystem and hence, landscape, of Point Reyes. Their recovery has been an exciting success story for the restoration of native species and ecosystems, which is consistent with the mission of the National Park Service.
It is crucial that commercial lease holders on our public lands do not dictate policies of wildlife removal or exclusion. It is also crucial that cattle-ranching operations be managed for the purpose of accommodating elk and other native wildlife - not for the purpose of destroying the habitat of endangered species.
In addition to managing the ecosystem appropriately, I also urge you to reject any conversion of national park lands to row crops or expansion of commercial livestock farming to introduce sheep, goats, turkeys, chickens or pigs. Doing so would create conflicts with predators, and degrade wildlife habitat and water quality.

That means the Park Service should consider management alternatives that would remove all cattle ranching from the National Seashore, remove all dairy cattle operations, or reduce existing ranching operations.
I object to the removal of any tule elk from their native land.
In addition, no row crops or new commercial animal farming should be permitted, and any cattle ranching operations must be managed to accommodate elk and other native wildlife.
Keeping natural areas wild, not managing them for ranchers, is the whole point of protected areas- --including protections for the elk that are part of the native ecosystem.

Correspondence: Please do not remove or kill the native tule elk from Point Reyes, California. The Park Service should be protecting native species rather than allowing commercial interests to intervene. This subspecies exists only in California and should be allowed and encouraged to remain there.
The Park Service let half the park's original herd die during the state's 2012-2014 drought by keeping them fenced in without adequate water and forage; then the Service shot 26 elk during 2015 and 2016. This is a tragedy and should be reason enough to protect the remaining herd and the 18,000 acres of public lands they inhabit.

Correspondence: Both as a biologist, and as a family member concerned about future biodiversity, I am writing to support the existence of free-roaming tule elk herds at Point Reyes National Seashore.
Consequently I object to any removal or killing of tule elk in the park. Nor do I agree with the fencing or sterilization of these elk, who form an important component of the natural ecosystem of Point Reyes. The 2012-2014 drought meant the parks service has already halved the original elk population through fencing (despite the cruelty inherent in this type of action).
Point Reyes is public land and the interests of the majority of Americans should be placed first, especially since the mission of the parks service is supposed to be protecting natural habitats and wildlife. Expansion of commercial leases should NOT occur and private individuals (seeking greater profits) should not dictate wildlife removal or exclusion policies. Indeed any management of cattle-ranching operations must not only accommodate elk and other native wildlife but also should not negatively impact on such habitat for endangered species in any significant way.
Moreover I respectfully request that you reject any conversion of national park lands to row crops, or to the expansion of commercial livestock farming involving the introduction of sheep, goats, turkeys, chickens or pigs to the area. Such farming would necessarily degrade wildlife habitat and water quality, and would also cause predator-prey conflicts that would again create more negative impacts for wildlife (as farmers responded to the conflicts). Furthermore increasing farming would reduce the available access by Americans to their own public lands.
Indeed the Park Service's amendment to the General Management Plan should prioritize protecting the natural values of Point Reyes National Seashore and, given the Center for Biological Diversity's legal settlement with the Park Service, the agency must consider management alternatives that would either remove cattle ranching and dairy operations or, at the least,reduce them.

Correspondence: Dear Superintendent,
Its really difficult to understand why the tule elk were brought back to the Pt. Reyes National Seashore back in the 70s yet now the NPS wants to ignore their recovery and eliminate them so that ranchers and other agricultural industries can take over. I am 100% against turning this beautiful park over to industries that will commercialize it and make it off limits to the public. I would love to visit the Park and be able to see the free-roaming tule elk herds so I vehemently oppose any fencing, removal, sterilization or killing of elk in the park. The tule elk are a native species and belong there and their re-introduction has been a huge success. Now the NPS wants to just turn their back on these animals because special interest groups want to take over the Park for their own profits. The NPS is supposed to be protecting our parks and the animals who live there, not kill off the aniimals to keep special interest groups happy.
Our public lands belong to the public, yet time and time again, our voices are ignored in favor of commercial lease holders who I dont believe should be able to dictate wildlife removal or exclusion policies. Its time that the livestock industry learn how to co-exist with whatever native widlife lives on the landscape and shouldnt be asking the US govt to interfere on their behalf. The last thing this park needs is to be taken over by cattle and other livestock.
Allowing the park to be converted to to row crops or expansion of commercial livestock farming to introduce sheep, goats, turkeys, chickens or pigs is a really bad idea. This park is a wilderness that needs to remain wild and unpolluted so any conversion to livestock farming would ruin it forever.
I believe that the Park Service's amendment to the General Management Plan should be whats in the best interests of the American people who own this public space. I think most of us want you to prioritize protecting the natural values of Point Reyes National Seashore and the tule elk. Please dont kill off the tule elk. They are a treasure and deserve to be protected.

Correspondence: Invading the Point Reyes Natural Seashore habitat and destroying the Elk that are from there is a crime of nature. To introduce other species that have not lived there will upset the ecosystem and cause an unbalance among the flora and fauna. There is no shortage of meat in America and 'stealing' that land and turning it over to the cattle ranchers is something most citizens would say no to. We have enough cattle and we don't have enough Elk in that herd. If the National Park Service is not responsibile for the well being of the native creatures in any habitat then the Park Service needs to hit the 'delete' button and take a hike to somewhere. The National Park Service is not Mother Nature, but just one of her helpers and you have no right to play God and decide who lives and who dies. Leave it alone. We restored the Elk and now you want to kill them? No wonder most Americans are losing faith in their government. Pathetic, wasteful of taxpayers' money and lives of the Elk and not within the wants and desires of the country's citizenry.

Correspondence: I object to the NPS plan of removal or killing of any tule elk from their native land in Point Reyes at the request of ranchers who enjoy private cattle grazing leases in the park. The cattle industry has been allowed too much power and sway over the operation of public lands for far too long, always in their favor and always with ecologically disastrous outcomes as a result. From what I understand, the Park Service allowed half the park's original elk herd to die during the 2012-2014 drought by fencing them in, and it shot 26 elk in 2015 and 2016. This new plan to run elk off of 18,000 acres to allow cattle sole access to these public lands is completely unnecessary and not the way public lands should be utilized.

I also object to the plan of allowing row crops or new commercial animal farming on national park lands. The public would lose access to this land, and conversion would destroy wildlife habitat and water quality. Allowing ranchers to raise sheep, goats, turkeys, chickens and pigs in the park would create conflicts with predators and lead to killing of the park's coyotes and bobcats, which is an atrocious and harmful way to manage natural ecosystems.

Correspondence: I am emailing you to express my opposition to your plan to either relocate or kill Tule Elk at the Point Reyes National Seashore in California. These elk were successfully reintroduced in 1978 and are now part of the biological diversity at Point Reyes National Seashore.. They should not be killed to allow cattle grazing in this unit of the National Park System. This is the only national park unit in the entire United States where this subspecies of Elk is found. It goes against the concept and purpose of national parks to either remove or kill animals which either are native or have been reintroduced. I further believe that it is wrong to allow cattle ranching to take place in Point Reyes National Seashore or in other national park unit for that matter. I ask that you reconsider your plan to either relocate or kill Tule Elk in Point Reyes National Seashore. This subspecies or Elk should be allowed to live in Point Reyes National Seashore in peace. Thank you for your consideration of my views.

They are lovely to see in their habitats, native lands and to learn more from our nature. All wildlife depend on humans to thrive and be here for many generations to come and enjoy the outdoors with their native species around. It would be very senseless to remove elk or kill them when they're just like us trying to thrive in this changing and evolutionary world. Please reconsider your proposal and leave elk alone for our children and grandchildren plus future generations to enjoy with their families and friends.
Thank you!

Correspondence: It is unforgiveable that the commercial keeping of cattle should take precedence over the lives of native animals. If people want to keep cattle and make money from so doing, then it is their responsibility to provide pasture and food at their own expence, not expect to graze their animals and thus feed them for free at the cost of the native wildlife.
Admittedly America is a young country and like all young things mistakes are made. However surely by now we know af all the animals that have become extinct due to the stupidity of humans. I would have thought that even with the greed of so many cattle ranchers, there might be a few with the decency and common sense to ensure that these animals are preserved for out grandchildren to enjoy.
I do understand that because of the "wild west" mentality that still exists among so many Americans, they cannot be happy unless they are killing either defenceless animals or children in schools or people at concerts. One day perhaps things will change in America.

The Park Service's amendment to the General Management Plan should prioritize protecting the natural values of Point Reyes National Seashore.
Thank you, Kathleen Obre

Non-human species are not on the planet to serve human interests. They are critical partners in helping maintain balance within the delicate ecosystems that humans rely on for vital resources, health and prosperity. As such, they deserve our respect and the same legal protections that humans afford themselves.

Correspondence: RE: Point Reyes National Seashore in Marin County, Calif
I am writing in support of the free-roaming tule elk herds at Point Reyes National Seashore, and I object deeply to the proposed adoption of private livestock and agriculture within the federal park which wholly fails and abandons the preservation mission of the NPS.
Any fencing, removal, sterilization or killing of elk in the park is a tragedy. Tule elk are an important part of the landscape of Point Reyes, and their recovery has been an exciting success story for restoring native species and ecosystems, consistent with the mission of the National Park Service.
Commercial lease holders our public lonands shouldn't be allowed in the parks, particularly. Any cattle-ranching operations must be disallowed.
The park should be retained as a refuge to accommodate elk and other native wildlife, and shouldn't harm habitat for endangered species.
I also urge you to reject any conversion of national park lands to row crops or expansion of commercial livestock farming to introduce sheep, goats, turkeys, chickens or pigs. This would create conflicts with predators and degrade wildlife habitat and water quality, and increase methane and water table pollution.
The Park Service's amendment to the General Management Plan should prioritize protecting the natural values of Point Reyes National Seashore, not cater to current disastrous GOP anti-environmental legislation.
Sincerely,
A West
