About Us

In late 2015, a group of highly respected environmentalists and industry leaders formed The Coalition for a Balanced Environment (CBE). The Coalition will work to enhance and refine raven management practices throughout California, as this is a serious issue which has ramifications for other wildlife species, agriculture and ranching, and overall environmental health. Through enhanced raven management practices, the CBE will move towards its ultimate goal of restoring balance to the California Desert ecosystem and other ecosystems throughout the State.

Please review the CBE's position paper for a more fulsome overview of our mission.
