Editorial: Endangered Species Act threatened

Editorial: Endangered Species Act threatened | Advocating for Wildlife | Scoop.it
A bill in Congress poses a serious threat to the Endangered Species Act.
Candy Copeland's insight:

The Endangered Species Act (ESA) is endangered in my opinion.  Everywhere it seems, States are trying to butcher the Act so that they don't have to protect endangered Species or their habitat they depend on in order to survive.  They don't want their way to or ability to mine or drill hampered by some animal.  We must all fight this any where we see it.

Watching This Flock Of Birds Create Shapes In The Sky Is Hypnotizing

For the love of animals. Pass it on.
Candy Copeland's insight:

In my 50 plus years on this Earth I've seen this only once.  It is everything they claim and more and I'll never forget how awesome it was watching them.  Sadly, every year here in the USA Wildlife Services kills these birds by the millions as a pest.  Our Grandchildren will probably never witness this beautiful natural phenomena of Nature.
