Mono Lake Committee launches #LongLivetheGulls campaign

This spring, when tens of thousands of California Gulls return to their island nesting ground at Mono Lake, they will be in danger of having their once-safe colony raided by coyotes. During the drought, Mono Lake dropped 7 vertical feet—exposing a landbridge to the gulls’ nesting islands. It’s hard to believe that all of this snow and rain we’re getting won’t fix the problem naturally. The lake is rising, but the snow we’ve gotten this winter won’t melt and raise the lake in time to protect them when they lay their eggs in April. Help us put up a fence to save the gulls before it’s too late!

 

 

We’ve started a crowdfunding campaign to raise the $15,000 needed for the fence materials—check out our Indiegogo page for the fun perks and a short video on the project.

The thing about successful crowdfunding is that telling your friends is as important as donating. When you check out the site, share it with friends you know would be interested in the cause (or the perks) and you’ll be helping reach the goal too.

On behalf of Mono Lake’s California Gulls, thank you!

    There are those who are working very hard to refill the aquafers. Of the Southwest.

    the answer is too simple. Send out a couple of huntersand shoot the coyotes. They are predators and all you need is a hunting license to shoothem. There is no limit. Make sure they are experienced hunters. You don’t need to spend money building a fence. These are just Coyotes going into the ‘hen house’, or ‘gull’ house if you will.

    Easy as that!

    Shoot the coyotes? Really? The coyotes have enough difficulty surviving without such a terrible “solution”. A fence, though pricy, is a humane solution to the predation problem. The coyotes can continue to survive, and the seagulls will be safe.
