In Defense of Animals
In Defense of Animals and the Sea Lion Defense Brigade (SLDB) are seeking passionate, dedicated individuals to be volunteer observers throughout the spring at the Bonneville Dam and in Astoria, Oregon near Pier 36. The Columbia River sea lions need reliable eyes and ears on the river to assist in ending the lethal removal program.
If you have a still camera, binoculars, and/or video equipment and time to help, please volunteer with SLDB at either the Bonneville Dam or in Astoria.
For information about how you can help, or to volunteer, please contact Eric at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The sea lion killing program is more about politics than sound science. Sea lions are being trapped, branded, and killed for eating 1% of the fish while humans' predation is at an all time high of 17%.
Sea Lions are being scapegoated by the fishing industry. Science shows
the importance of protecting keystone species in the ecology and removing
these species from an eco-system causes harm to the system as a whole.
Thank you for everything you do for animals!
