Oppose CA Regs to Ban Frogs, Turtles and Beaded Lizards
Wednesday March 3rd there will be a California Fish & Game
Commission meeting to discuss proposals to BAN all non native turtles
and frogs, as well as severely restrict the ownership of beaded lizards.

The meeting will be held in Ontario, CA. USARK has hired professional
representation and will attend this meeting to defend the interests of
California Herpers. The USARK delegation will include President Andrew
Wyatt, Director Gary Bagnall and Senior Advisor George Osborn.

USARK and the Reptile Nationís position on the proposed rule changes is as follows:
1. We appreciate CA Fish & Game and their desire to protect CA, but all of the facts have not been considered.
2. To date no industry experts have testified, and no hard evidence has been submitted to justify severe regulatory changes.
If enacted regulatory changes banning non native turtles and frogs, as
well as, beaded lizards could have a serious impact on the economy of
CA and result in loss of jobs.
4. We request that serious consideration be given to alternative proposals prior to any rule making.
We urge caution be used in assessing potential legal ramifications of
any actions taken that would negatively impact legal commerce in
captive bred turtles, frogs and beaded lizards.

What happens in California can set precedent across the country. Donít let ill conceived regulation destroy the Reptile Nation.

Take Action to Stop the Ban on Frogs, Turtles & Beaded Lizards TODAY!

have hired professional consultants to help us fight this proposed Ban
on Turtles, Frogs & Beaded Lizards. The financial costs are high.
