Event Type Speaker
Organizer/AuthorJoolay
Long-time activist, Rod Coronado is currently helping to build a grassroots campaign against the recreational hunting of wolves and the USDA's Wildlife Services program which is responsible for eradicating literally hundreds of thousands of predators annually with traps, poisons and aerial gunning. His 2014 speaking tour consists of Coronado and when possible, other representatives from organizations sharing the same mission. This lecture series comprises a brief history of gray wolves and their successful recovery from near extinction, and how after being stripped of endangered species protection, six states have begun recreational hunting and trapping of wolves.

Coronado explains his own path towards protecting American predators with organizations such as Earth First! and describes how those efforts led to some change, but also legal consequences that resulted in his imprisonment. As a veteran of the environmental movement for over 30 years, Coronado explains how we must now move forward to create campaigns that involve participating in the same public process that is used to develop public policies towards wildlife. Currently, most states' wildlife policies are determined by those with a vested interest in hunting and fishing, and what Coronado hopes for is greater participation in this process from the majority of citizens who appreciate wildlife as members of the ecological community deserving protection.

Coronado also draws from his Native American heritage to explain the relationship some indigenous nations have towards wolves and other animals, and explains how similar public sentiments are yet to be reflected in the government agencies entrusted to protect wildlife. The recent resumption of sport hunting of wolves and the continued indiscriminate eradication of predators by Wildlife Services signals a return to an old way of seeing wildlife, and one that Coronado and his allies hope to replace with a greater understanding of the role wild predators play in healthy ecosystems.
