Our Position on Hunting

Our organization is not opposed to hunting when the hunters eat what they kill out of necessity or because they prefer wild foods to meat sourced from industrial animal agriculture. Some of our staff, board and advisory committee members are hunters and/or anglers who kill with respect for animals and without cruelty and waste. Our coalition partners hold a diversity of positions on hunting. However, we are all pro-science, pro-democracy, pro-justice and in favor of treating wild animals with compassion and respect, which is why we believe the system of wildlife management in the U.S. must be changed.
