The P-22 Legacy Lives On
On Tuesday, February 28, L.A. County Supervisors proposed honoring the legacy of Mountain Lion P-22 by promoting wildlife corridors and banning anti-coagulant poisons. The motion, in addition to advocating support of State and Federal funding for wildlife crossings, also advocates in support of a State ban on first-generation anticoagulant rodenticides (FGARs). It also will send a five-signature letter to the United States Postal Service (USPS) Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, with a copy to the USPS Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee, in support of Representatives Adam Schiff, Ted Lieu and Julia Brownley’s request to have P-22 honored with a postage stamp. It would also direct the Chief Executive Officer to work with all County Departments to ban the use of FGARs on all County-owned and managed properties and explore means to phase out the use of FGARs throughout the unincorporated County, It also would support Countywide education efforts on the dangers posed by FGARs and urges coordination with cities and relevant agency partners on creating a comprehensive strategy for stopping the use of FGARs on all publicly managed lands. Fingers crossed.
