    As a frequent reader of this web site, I appreciate the information but the news for the most part is depressing. The only way that I can improve my mood is to go hiking. It must be wonderful to not care about wild things & creatures because it is indeed a burden. Think of all those happy people who look forward to the day when there will be more golf courses & shopping malls & theme parks & roads. These are the 21 first century open spaces.
