    Ralph and company, this blog is great and is doing a real service to get conservation news disseminated. I find it much higher quality than the usual blog bloviating. Congratulations!

    Ralph, that is a terrific accomplishment for you and a great service to the country. Well done!

    But to respond to your comment: “”We are pleased, especially that a blog about wildife and conservation news could be number one.””

    What ELSE would be a topic for wide spread blogging in Idaho, the problem with hollow heart in potatoes?

    What a great honor for all of you who facilitate this blog! I have said it before – this blog is the first thing I read every morning and practically the last thing I read at night. The only other blog I read is DailyKos – sometimes Huffington Post.
    Wolves.wordpress informs me about the issues I am very passionate about – wildlife, conservation, nature and advocating for these issues. I can connect with people who are in agreement with me on these issues and some who don’t, which is all right too. You give me hope for the future.
    Thank you for your integrity and advocacy, Ralph, Brian, Ken, Dusty and everyone else who contributes!



‎"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."
