Raptors Are the Solution (RATS) educates people about the ecological role of birds of prey in urban and wild areas and about the danger they face from the widespread use of rat poison.
Our goal is to see all anticoagulant and other poisonous rodenticides taken off the market and no longer used by pest control companies due to their dangers to children, pets, and wildlife.
Much of our work involves public education campaigns, including on public transit and freeway billboards. In 2016 we are working toward a statewide ban on rodenticides in California.
