Take Action to Protect Wildlife

Take Action to Protect Wildlife | Garry Rogers Nature Conservation News | Scoop.it

"The "Bipartisan Sportsmen's Act of 2014" is harmful to wildlife and natural areas in many ways, and would force local land managers to give priority to trapping, hunting, fishing and shooting over all the other ways that Americans and their families enjoy Federal lands, such as hiking, biking, bird watching and kayaking. We all should be able to experience our public lands free from the dangers posed by the tiny minority of those who hunt animals. We also should be free to have those lands and wildlife protected from the dangers of lead poisoning (from lead bullets) -- an issue this bill expressly forbids scientists from even considering.

"Take action to protect wildlife habitat by calling your U.S. Senator today. It only takes a couple minutes, but your calls and phone messages have a powerful impact with legislators. You can simply say....

For more than three decades, the Animal Legal Defense Fund has been fighting to protect the lives and advance the interests of animals through the legal system.
Garry Rogers's insight:

Our leaders should not risk harming Earth ecosystems. Without formal courses in ecology, they are susceptible to false arguments.  When we allow special interests to supply experts and offer campaign support, nonsense receives equal time. Errors are inevitable.  We have to take the action called for in this article, but we must recognize we are treating symptoms.  Let's also look for ways to call for better nature education.

Garry Rogers's insight:

The same thing goes on here in the U. S.  This year the Arizona Game and Fish Department had to advertize to sell all the hunting permits it needed to sell.  Some of those permits are for animals that are doomed by approaching development.  They are going to become extinct anyway, so why not let hunters pay to kill a few.  The Department needs the money.

Stop the execution of Siberian wolves

Stop the execution of Siberian wolves | Garry Rogers Nature Conservation News | Scoop.it

Here is the link to sign the Siberian Wolf petition to the Parliament of Latvia Stop killing wolves.

Garry Rogers's insight:

GR:  Herders and farmers see wolves as economic threats; hunters see them as competitors.  Neither group is interested in stable Earth ecosystems.  Perhaps Latvians need a better education like, uh, like….  Hmm, does any country require natural history and ecology courses in its school curricula?
