The Holiday Season is the wrong time to decide whether to drop poison on the Farallon Islands and kill thousands of birds in order to kill rodents. The item is on the calendar because many people are distracted by a new freedom from COVID19 restrictions combined with excitement about reuniting physically with friends and relatives in the Holiday spirit. These distractions result in lower attendance and help some items get on the agenda with less scrutiny than during other times of the year.
Sierra Club Angeles Chapter is calling on the Mayor and City Council to Stop L.A. Zoo's planned destruction of native woodlands. A $650 million LA Zoo expansion would make room for modern animal habitats and veterinary support facilities, but could impact 227 protected native trees like Southern California Black Walnut, Toyons, Coast Live Oak, and other native shrubs. Instead club leaders are asking Angelenos to support the environmentally superior Alternative 1 in the Zoo Vision Plan, which preserves 23 acres of native woodlands.
