Exposing Wildlife Services: Using the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)
Wednesday, December 14, 2022 at 12:00 p.m. PT / 3:00 p.m. ET
Join Campaigns Manager Matt Rossell and Campaigner Abbey Benesh to learn how the Animal Legal Defense Fund has used the Freedom of Information Act and Public Record Requests to gain information about relationships between local governments and Wildlife Services. Wildlife Services is a federal program, and part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Many cities and counties contract with the agency to kill native wildlife for a multitude of reasons, from reducing the amount of goose waste in public parks to killing wildlife on behalf of ranchers who use public land to raise farmed animals. In this free webinar, you will learn about the Animal Legal Defense Fund’s past work exposing contracts, terms, and services that cities or counties have engaged with Wildlife Services to perform, and our efforts to challenge those programs.
