Here at DP, we have a special fondness for the Gila Wilderness, being one of the very last truly wild places within what are known as “the lower forty-eight”. Thus our ears were caught and hearts fired up by the following missive from WildEarth Guardian Leia Barnett.
Images relayed from the highly informative website of the WildEarth Guardians.
As their mission statement, the WildEarth Guardians write:
We are Guardians.
We protect and restore the wildlife, wild places, wild rivers, and health of the American West.
We envision a world where wildlife and wild places are respected and valued and our world is sustainable for all beings.
We believe in nature’s inherent right to exist and thrive. We speak for the wild life, places, and waters that have been dominated and abused to serve the interests of a greedy few. Bit by bit, we are restoring the balance.
We are now, as always, A FORCE FOR NATURE.
