What We Are Fighting For

Only a handful of America’s national parks permit cattle grazing. One-third of the Point Reyes National Seashore—some 18,000 acres—IS dedicated to the exclusive use of two dozen ranchers. There are 6,000 cattle in the Seashore, more than there are Tule elk on the planet. Cows outnumber elk in the park 10 to 1. But the problems at the Seashore extend far beyond elk. Restore Point Reyes Seashore is fighting to reform management failures that threaten the future of the park itself. We are raising awareness, inspiring public involvement, and taking appropriate action— including in the courts. We don’t engage in nor endorse anyone breaking the law—including the NPS. Our goal is to require the NPS to follow the law— managing our national parks and the wildlife and resources therein “unimpaired for future generations.”

  Point Reyes: A Wilderness in Peril

Point Reyes Seashore is a national treasure in our own backyard. Every year more than 2 million people come to the Seashore to be in nature, hoping to glimpse rare wildlife like the migrating whales and majestic Tule elk. But too few know of the threats to this fragile coastal ecosystem from the 6,000 cattle that graze 24/7 on these public lands. How does a handful of Marin ranchers manage to remain in our park 60 years after the National Seashore was created? Why does the National Park Service permit these commercial dairies and beef operations to continue despite the damage to the land, water, wildlife and climate?

“Point Reyes: A Wilderness in Peril” explores the history and decades-long battle to reclaim and restore the park for the public. Watch the series starting April 8th 7pm | Sat. April 10 6:30 pm MarinTV, Channel 26 On Demand at cmcm.tv
