Mink was recently transported upstate by NH Fish & Game (her cubs were taken to Lyme) after eating from Hanover residents’ bird feeders and garbage. However, she now seems to be making her way back to Hanover to find her cubs.
We call on NH Fish & Game and the Town of Hanover to exclude the possibility of killing Mink from the list of options about how to treat her when she returns to town.

Take Action for Blacktip Reef Sharks
The blacktip reef shark’s home around the coral reefs is being damaged by ocean acidification—which occurs when the ocean absorbs carbon and becomes acidified. Increasing acidification degrades the physical structure of these reefs, putting blacktip reef shark habitat and food supply at risk. This affects all the creatures living among the reef—not just blacktip reef sharks.
Federal research funding can help deepen our scientific understanding of this problem and enable us to respond in order to protect thousands of jobs. This expanded ocean acidification research will provide desperately needed resources to help us address one of the most widespread threats to coastal communities and the ocean today.
Please write to your members of Congress today—urging them to fully fund ocean acidification research projects.
