Wildlife Matters Looks at the Crisis of Rat Poison and Wildlife

The widespread use of rodenticides in homes, schools, restaurants, hotels, and in agriculture, weakens and kills a host of beneficial predators, such as hawks, owls, fishers, bobcats, and even cougars.  Tune in to www.kmud.org on Thursday, December 25 at 5 p.m. PST, to hear Maggie Rufo, of The Hungry Owl Project, talk about this crisis.  We will also hear from Mourad Gabriel, of the Integral Ecology Research Center, talk about the heinous poisoning of Nyxo.  We look at the important role rodents play in the food web, and sane ways we can keep rodents out of our homes.  This is a crisis we can turn around!  It is up to us to educate ourselves, and our neighbors, to stop using rat poison.

The show will also be available to stream or download on this blog.
