    We are desperately seeking to save the Mitchel’s satyre butterfly in northeastern Indiana. Its habitat is a fenn that would probably be ruined if the Too Tail Dairy is allowed to locate there. We are presently suing,but we are not as powerful as the Vbreba Hoff Co out of the Netherlands. Our group is called Hoosiers for Sustainable Agriculture. Please help us if you can

  2. Heather says:

    Keep up the good work, Wildlife Guardians.

  3. Nathan Hobbs says:

    Are the Yellowstone Bison on that list?

  4. Brian Ertz says:


    no, the Yellowstone Bison are not on the list.

    It’s pretty neat though – It’s good to see such effort behind listing species that are not necessarily “charismatic” (I hate that characterization). It will be interesting to see what happens.

    My guess is that if the list did include bison, the petition would not get a second look.

    I hope the petition makes some progress as it may open the door to going forward once again, and gaining the precious ground that was lost as a result of the bush admin.



‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
