Fight for wilderness!
Wild places are worth fighting for!
(photo: John McFeeters)
   
In the not so distant past, before the onset of the dramatic human population expansions of the past 150 years, vast expanses of forests and wildlands covered most of the earth's surface.

These diverse wildlands, not recognizing country specific or political boundaries, supported the many ecosystems containing all the life above the ocean's surfaces on the entire planet.


In today's times, these ecosystems and undeveloped peices of terra firma still perform the same task of planetary life support as they have for millenia untold, however, now face a challenge they have never faced before. Due to an endless list of modern day environmental travesties, the earth's ecosystems are dwindling fast.

The rapid exploitation of resources and species over the past 200 years has been nothing short of astounding and dramatic. The result is a state of declining health that can only be corrected by the same species responsible for its current state of fragility...

Let's do something about it. Human beings cannot survive on a planet devoid of ecosystems and the creatures that live within them...

BUSHMEAT CRISES TASK FORCE


The BCTF is a consortium of conservation organizations and scientists dedicated to the conservation of wildlife populations threatened by commercial hunting of wildlife for sale as meat. The BCTF operates under the direction of an elected Steering Committee and is funded by Supporting and Contributing Members.

Our primary goals are to: a) work with the general members of the BCTF to focus attention on the bushmeat crisis in Africa; b) establish an information database and mechanisms for information sharing regarding the bushmeat issue; c) facilitate engagement of African partners and stakeholders in addressing the bushmeat issue; and d) promote collaborative decision-making, fund-raising and actions among the members and associates of the BCTF.


KEY ORGANIZATIONS:
Here are a few of the more involved organizations working hard and making differences in the health and well being of our planet's forests and ecosystems:

EARTH ISLAND INSTITUTE- (In their own words...)
Earth Island's Project Network consists of more than 30 projects worldwide. Through innovative education and activist campaigns, they are addressing many of the most pressing social and environmental issues: Protecting rainforests, marine mammals, sea turtles, and indigenous lands, promoting organic and sustainable agriculture, ecological paper alternatives, and the emerging Russian environmental movement, pursuing community-based habitat restoration, reduction of marine pollution, and development of urban multicultural environmental leadership.

DAVID SUZUKI FOUNDATION
Since 1990, the David Suzuki Foundation has worked to find ways for society to live in balance with the natural world that sustains us. Focusing on four program areas – oceans and sustainable fishing, forests and wild lands, climate change and clean energy, and the web of life - the Foundation uses science and education to promote solutions that help conserve nature.

EARTH FIRST-
Tel: (541)344-8004 Fax:(541)344-.7688, PO. Box 1415, Eugene OR 97440
In the beginning, grassroots and hardcore, Earthfirst was known as a "movement" rather than an actual organization for many years due to their ability to create corporate headaches and effect creative environmental campaigns that made a difference...without having prosecutable activists to pick on...
now, they still do the same stuff, but they have a website...

WORLDWATCH INTERNATIONAL-
The Worldwatch Institute offers a unique blend of interdisciplinary research, global focus, and accessible writing that has made it a leading source of information on the interactions among key environmental, social, and economic trends. Our work revolves around the transition to an environmentally sustainable and socially just society—and how to achieve it.

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC-
Educating people worldwide about animals and the world's ecosystems, this award winning monthly publication is unequaled in its quality journalism and photos.

NEW SCIENTIST-
Science and technology site with excellent articles regarding the environment.

SPECIEES- (Society to Prevent Exotic Contamination of Island Ecosystems & Endangered Species)
PO Box 3241, Friday Harbor, WA 98250, (360) 298-0368
"SPECIEES is committed to conserving fragile island ecosystems and protecting their indigenous species. We work toward these goals by humanely removing and re-homing invasive animals to protect the unique biodiversity of these regions. We investigate and expose the illegal trade in non-native animals and educate the public on the threats these animals pose to vulnerable island environments."
