"Like winds and sunsets, wild things were taken for granted until progress began to do away
with them. Now we face the question whether a still higher 'standard of living' is worth its
cost in things natural, wild and free. " ~~ Aldo Leopold ~~
“Our sense of community and compassionate intelligence must be extended to all life forms, plants, animals, rocks, rivers, and human beings. This is the story of our past and it will be the story of our future.” ~~ Terry Tempest William ~~
"We abuse the land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect."
~ Aldo Leopold ~~
"The ultimate test of man's conscience may be his willingness to sacrifice something today for future generations whose words of thanks will not be heard."
~~ Gaylord Nelson, former governor of Wisconsin, founder of Earth Day ~~
These quotes encompass what it means to be fully awake in our lives, engaged with conscience, their sentiment is never more relevant than today. This is a place where we can unite to address our concerns about diminishing habitats and populations of imperiled and other species struggling to survive in a world we all share. We are all connected, and our wild brethren deserve to live their lives without the interference, persecution or exploitation by man. The greatest gift that any species can give is to save the life of another. We still know the difference between right and wrong, although we may have forgotten that we can make a difference. It's time to make that difference.

The Light of Hope
To promote sustainability, encourage bio-diversity and a co-existence between species.
To support a dedication to ending the war on all wildlife.
To bring awareness to the prejudice and persecution of the wolf, and the persistent reckless concern for his survival. (Persecution of the wolf is a world-wide frenzied mentality. We must unite globally if wolves are to survive anywhere in the wild.)
To highlight the brutal wolf hunts that are now taking place in the USA (Idaho, Montana, Wisconsin & Minnesota), and the injustice behind the savagery. Wolves in Wyoming are viewed as vermin. A shoot-on-sight plan has been implemented, which means that wolves can be killed at any time, for any reason and by any means.
To educate the public on the importance of natural predators within our eco-systems.
To ask for dedicated volunteers who are willing to devote a few hours of their day by assisting in various tasks for a project in the works. Other assignments to follow as we evolve. (Please contact me directly for further information.)
