We’re Thankful For You

 

Thank you for being a part of this community that cares so much about our wildlife and wild places, and fights tirelessly against the many threats they face.

We have a lot of work to do in the coming years, but today of all days we want to take a minute to recognize how much we have to be thankful for. It’s been a busy year for wildlife conservation, and while we’ve had a number of challenges, there have been some wonderful successes as well. We’ve seen fishers return to Washington state and more wolves return to California, celebrated new national monuments on land and at sea, and saw the U.S. deal a devastating blow to elephant poaching by placing a ban on commercial trade of African elephant ivory. Bears and wolves on wildlife refuges in Alaska are safer, military macaws are making a comeback in Mexico, we know more about wolverines in the Rockies, and many species are better protected from overexploitation in international trade.

We know that we still have a lot of work to do – but knowing that you’ll be fighting alongside us means everything.

    thanks to everyone for all they do. in the yesterdays water bill that past, i listend to the senators give their floor speeches. sen inhoffe was the last to talk, and he included the remark that dams would be built by the corps of eng. and no one would be able to comment. this applies to 17 states. also he said. “if a Native American tribe was in the way and needed to be removed, there was money in the rider attached by sen McCarthy to do this. this violates nation to nation soverginty and he was not concerned at all. laws broken? who cares. the bill past. flooding to begin whenever and wherever the corps of eng. wants to….this is not good. thought folks should know.
