Rat Poison Kills More Than Rats
Is rat poison our “new DDT”? RATS will discuss the impacts on wildlife being caused by anticoagulant rodenticides in the food web. RATS will explain the effects of these poisons on birds of prey as well as on bobcats, mountain lions, foxes, and Pacific fishers, among many other animals, including domestic pets. We will discuss AB 1788 and RATS’ legal efforts as well as alternatives to rodenticides, and what individuals and municipalities can do to help beneficial predators thrive and continue to provide us with their free, natural, pest control services.
There is a $5 fee for this program. If you're a San Diego Humane Society staff member or volunteer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org before registering. ZOOM information will be sent to you the day before the presentation.
