Petition: Save Sparta Mountain From Logging

Petition: Save Sparta Mountain From Logging | Our Evolving Earth | Scoop.it

Sparta Mountain in New Jersey.  This would cause irreparable damage to the complex wetland systems and C1 trout streams assigned the highest classification in the State. The current practice of clear cutting and logging and the proposed use of herbicides and fire pose a threat to our drinking water and to our safety. 


This is a not just a local issue. It is a national one. All public preserved lands are at risk. This campaign to open publicly owned lands to commercial logging is being implemented nationwide and must be stopped!

Petition to stop human encroachment and possible extermination of rare wolf species. 

 The coastal wolves of Vargas Island Provincial Park are in danger because of human-induced conflict.BC’s coastal wolves rely on access to beaches and the ocean for food. Wolves are highly intelligent social animals and their packs work just like close-knit human families do.

 At this time of year, with hungry pups in the den, wolf packs have more mouths to feed. With more than 80 percent of their food provided by the sea, they rely on what the tide brings in.
