PUBLIC LAND USERS, YOUR ACCESS IS IN JEOPARDY!

ARE YOU A PUBLIC LAND USER? REGARDLESS OF WHAT ACTIVITIES YOU ENGAGE IN ON PUBLIC LANDS YOUR ACCESS IS IN JEOPARDY!

Case in point, effective August 31, 2020, these pack llamas were eliminated by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) based on an unfounded and scientifically indefensible disease risk. United States Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS) is pointing to fake science (https://www.hoover.org/research/scientifically-illiterate-america) as justification for the elimination of the pack llama user group.

USFWS came out with their final rule effective August 31, 2020 banning the use of pack llamas (camelids) in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR). This is much bigger than packing with llamas in Alaska. It potentially affects all users of public lands. If they can do this to llama packers, they can do it to anyone.
