In addition to working toward federal legislation to limit transport times, API worked to educate grocery retailers about the cruelty of long-distance transport by sending information packets complete with a DVD of our groundbreaking investigation and a survey on long-distance transport.

API wants to reduce human-coyote conflicts and the number of coyotes killed as a result.
