Wildlife Issues – Save the Wolves and Polar Bears

I’m a supporter of Defenders of Wildlife. These guys do a lot of the work I wish I could do.

Today’s newsletter hits home, and I urge everyone who lives in the US to make your voice heard.

Protect the Refuge, Reject Big Oil

The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge has been called America’s Serengeti — one of the most important onshore denning habitats for America’s struggling polar bears and home to caribou, Arctic foxes and millions of migratory birds.

But that’s not stopping the Bush/Cheney Administration and its allies in Congress from pushing to hand over this special place to Big Oil’s rigs.

Take action now — tell your Senators to reject drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and support permanent protections for this special place.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    Thanks. I used it to write to my senators…whoever would have guessed that Demented Demint and Graham would think that our need for oil! now! was so much more important than a few scroungy wolves.

    I guess they texted their replies from their hunting plane.

    Even though I also post links to online petitions, the fact is, they’re not very effective. Reps seem to be okay with ignoring them.

    If you really want to have an impact — read the information provided in the e-mail petition, then go here:
    CONGRESS —
    http://www.house.gov/house/MemberWWW_by_State.shtml
    SENATE —
    http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm

    …and call these people. Be prepared to leave a message — read from a script if you wish — but make it your own so you don’t get dismissed as part of another petition drive.

    It’s also good if you send them a handwritten letter…

    …so long as what you do indicates you took plenty of effort to reach your rep.
