The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) has announced a new campaign to support the California Department of Fish and Game’s work in combating poaching. HSUS will create community-based programs to help drive efforts to support law enforcement to bring poachers to justice. “There is a serious wildlife law-enforcement shortage in California and our state’s game wardens work tirelessly with very limited resources at their disposal,” says Jennifer Fearing, senior state director for HSUS. The state currently has only 200 field game wardens on staff; HSUS’ effort and support is the first of its kind in the country.
