I have a message I was asked to share with my readers that is very important.  I hope you’ll take a moment to learn more and help out.

Congress’ current budget bill has a series of ANTI-WILDLIFE PROPOSALS that would strip Endangered Species protections for the gray wolf, expand offshore oil drilling in the Arctic that could harm the polar bear habitat, and take away water intended to restore rapidly declining salmon runs.

Sadly, all three of these species are already struggling to survive:

Polar Bears live in some of the harshest conditions on Earth and are now being hit by climate change.

Salmon must fight their way past dams and irrigation pumps just as more and more of their water is siphoned off for human use.

Gray Wolves were slaughtered to the brink of extinction until recovery efforts in the 1990s pulled them back from the edge.

Animals like these three are amazing, iconic species that represent the very best of America’s great untamed wilderness. To lose these animals is to lose an essential part of America’s greatness.

  1. Though your passion if evident, none of these species are endangered. The biggest threat to polar bears is climate change, not oil drilling. Salmon runs will continue to decline until all dams and diversions are removed, and wolves have recovered to the point of delisting.
    These species are flagship species…they recieve attention because they are cute and cuddly.
    There are actually species out there that are endagered; I urge you to promote their plights.

  2. Earthjustice makes it’s revenue two ways. The first is to bring suit against the US Government. Through a little known statute they are reimbursed for all attorneys fees if they successfully argue any cases, even a technicality can result in thousands of dollars.

    The second funding source is you. They make emotional appeals using words reserved for human children such as baby, infant, adopt, etc, and they show photos of soft eyed animals.

    Information on wolves, polar bear, and salmon is close by on the pages of Wikipedia, might want to go take a look.

    Any donations to litigation companies might well do more harm than good.
