San Luis Obispo Raptors Are The Solution
Welcome to SLO-RATS, the San Luis Obispo County chapter of Berkeley-based Raptors Are The Solution.
SLO-RATS goal is to spread the word to educate our San Luis Obispo County residents and business owners about the role of raptors in our ecosystem and the dangers of anticoagulant and other poisonous rodenticides to raptors, mammals, domestic pets, and our children.
Community support is critical in changing public understanding and action. Through our website, our Education Team/Animal Ambassadors and our Wildly Aware! Education and Outreach Program, SLO-RATS will advocate for wildlife and the dangers of the continued use of rat poisons.
Support SLO-RATS and help San Luis Obispo County join the statewide movement to ban rodenticides.
