In a few hours—when the clock strikes midnight in New Mexico—traps, snares, and poisons will be banned on public lands across the Land of Enchantment. Roxy’s Law officially goes into effect tomorrow.
This victory took well over a decade of relentless pressure to achieve, and it belongs to everyone who took part in this campaign over the years. This includes our incredible allies in the TrapFree New Mexico coalition. And it probably includes you if you are reading this.
WildEarth Guardians envisions a world in which wildlife is protected and respected, a world where an ethic of coexistence is the norm and exploitation and cruelty are banished, a world where native foxes, bobcats, beavers, badgers, and wolves are revered for their ecological roles and honored for their intrinsic value.
And with your continued help—and generous support—we will work to make that world a reality.
