A Danger To Our Grizzlies

I’ve seen a brown bear on it’s hind legs  in Santa Barbara, CA. It must have been 10 ft. tall with its massive body and awesome presence. It is an American treasure since Lewis  and Clark first described  their encounters with America’s  extraordinary  and plentiful wildlife over 200 years ago.

Much has been written about the plight of orangutans clinging to life in the dwindling forests of Indonesia. But where words fail, a single image can say so much.

Volunteers from International Animal Rescue (IAR) have been working on the ground in Borneo to save the lives of animals affected by a massive wildfire ravaging the island’s forests. The group recently came to the rescue of a desperate orangutan and her baby — victims not only of the blaze, but of human cruelty as well.

“They were forced out of their forest home as a result of the fires and ended up in a village. The villagers were frightened and threw things at the terrified mother before attempting to capture and tie her up,” IAR wrote in a post online. “Fortunately our team got to her just in time.”https://www.thedodo.com/orangutan-with-baby-rescue-photo-1442053034.html

Lion populations have fallen sharply since the early 1990s and are likely to shrink by half again in the next two decades, researchers said.

When the Obama administration announced last month that it would not add the greater sage grouse to the endangered species list, some conservation groups predictably criticized the ruling.

“It’s a sign that politics as usual has taken over the process,” said Erik Molvar of WildEarth Guardians, which had lobbied to protect the bird.

A more surprising development was that many other environmental organizations applauded the decision and the Interior Department’s proactive approach: With the threat of regulation under the Endangered Species Act hanging in the background, the department prodded states, federal agencies and private landowners to work together on a conservation plan that could make an endangered listing unnecessary.

Interior Secretary Sally Jewell, who called the Endangered Species Act a “catalyst for conservation,” said that the strategy sought to balance economic interests with the needs of the beleaguered bird, whose numbers have been devastated by development, wildfires,invasive species like cheatgrass, and other threats. The amount of land involved — millions of acres of state, private and federally managed land across 10 Western states — makes the effort one of the largest voluntary conservation projects
