Take Action

  • Thank you for your interest in helping rectify and ending one or many of the wrongs with trapping in Montana and wondering.......... how can you help?

  • Trap Free Montana Public Lands, Inc. (TFMPL) is a nonprofit, Montana citizen driven, coalition that formed at the end of 2013 as a grassroots ballot initiative committee for the 2014 ballot.

    Our progressive efforts continue as we advocate for much needed trapping reform and safe, responsible use of our treasured, yet, minimal public lands in Montana.

    We have powerful opposition from pro-trapping groups, with significant funding and out-of-state backing who are determined to preserve all the cruelty they inflict at any cost.

  • As our website is under construction and due to the increased cost of shipping and limited stock, our merchandise is available now only at events we participate in. Thank you.

  • S.1081 - Refuge from Cruel Trapping Act

    RE: S.1081 - Refuge from Cruel Trapping Act

    Our National Wildlife Refuges number over 500. 

    A guiding principle of the National Wildlife Refuge System states:
  • S.1081 - Refuge from Cruel Trapping Act

    Our National Wildlife Refuges number over 500. These refuges are reported home to more than 700 species of birds, 220 species of mammals, 250 species of reptiles and amphibians, 1,000 species of fish as well as innumerable invertebrates and plants. The refuges are promoted to provide safe haven for 280 endangered species.

    Well over half of them allow trapping!

    Now where does trapping fit in to refuge, shelter, conservation, restoration and safe haven? It doesn't!
