California Publishes Draft Elk Plan

California was once home to an estimated 500,000 elk. 

The number is quite a bit smaller now, maybe 13,000, but elk--in three subspecies--are on the rebound, and have been for years. 

California Fish and Wildlife now has its first draft plan for managing elk across the state, and it is available for public review and comment until late January. 

Joe Hobbs is an environmental scientist for CF&W.  He visits with details of the plan.  

You can comment with an email here, or write to:

California Department of Fish and Wildlife
Wildlife Branch, Attn: Joe Hobbs
1812 Ninth Street
Sacramento, CA  95811
