Dear advocates of swans...
For those of you who are not yet aware, one hundred forty two (142) Mute Swans were slaughtered on October 19th on White Lake in Muskegon, Michigan.
The officials claim there are 1200 swans on this lake and that those killed were all adults.
We went to White Lake on Sunday, 11/11/12, where we counted 27 on the entire 2,571 acre lake.
These lies have got to stop. THIS OUR TIME TO SPEAK UP FOR THE SWANS.
Please write a letter to the Governor letting him know how disappointed you are in him for allowing these killings to happen without sound science to back them up. HE APPOINTS THE DNR OFFICIALS.
Ask for a moratorium.
Write whatever is on your mind and/or in your heart.
Does Pure Michigan mean no wildlife...?
If you wrote a letter before to your state reps and senators, thank you!
Please see see below for more information on the wolf and the bear bills and how you can help with them, too. If you have any questions, please send me an e-mail.
Our DNR is awful and we need to start voicing our concerns that we do not approve of their management plans and their type of conservation, (change habitats to entice wildlife, so they can kill it). Please speak up!
Thanks To Everyone!!!

Our mission is to bring issues regarding cruelty or any wrongdoing to Michigan waterfowl to the forefront. View our other wildlife page to see who else we're protecting.
Our goals are
to help educate the general public about our wildlife, with a focus on waterfowl
- to encourage the public to question the government agencies that we entrust with our wildlife, such as the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and the USDA, especially when their "science" is questionable
Our immediate focus is to raise awareness about the DNR slaughtering thousands of mute swans in Michigan, and try to stop it. We urge the DNR to place a moratorium on all killings and put a humane management plan into effect.
Thank you for visiting our web site and for your support to help our waterfowl.
