How the NPS is favoring legacy cattle ranches and dairies
over preservation of the land and the survival of the native Tule Elk.
Over 50 organizations, including the Coalition to Protect America's National Parks – have joined together to urge the Department of the Interior to stop the National Park Service’s imminent
General Management Plan Amendment (GMPA) for Point Reyes National Seashore,
a plan that favors special interests over the public use, protection and restoration of this National Park.
Right now, the National Park Service is rewriting its General Management Plan for Point Reyes National Seashore, and the agency must decide whether to sunset the expired livestock grazing leases across tens of thousands of publicly-owned acres, or to continue authorizing unsustainable overgrazing, tillage agriculture and even the killing of native tule elk by extending leases that were never intended to continue on indefinitely.
Tule elk are treasured creatures in California, and for years, animal rights groups have butted heads with the Point Reyes National Seashore over its practice of keeping elk fenced away from nearby cattle ranches.
Amid a dry 2020, the groups tried to bring water to the creatures but were rebuffed by the National Park Service.

"Apocalypse Cow" article by P.Byrne heats up the debate. "The National Park Service unit is launching a propaganda war in a desperate effort to control the media narrative, and to cover up decades of laissez-faire mismanagement of livestock operations leasing Park Service lands on the National Seashore..."
Point Reyes National Seashore is under siege by the National Park Service; the organization sworn to protect this fragile and unique ecosystem for the benefit of the public access and recreation, biodiversity and wildlife.
Tule Elk have become the symbol of a battle between private enterprise and public interest.
“An analysis of the public comments submitted to the National Park Service regarding the future management of Pt. Reyes National Seashore shows an overwhelming preference for wilderness and wildlife over commercial ranching and dairies."
- Ken Bouley, concerned local citizen.”
