Barbary macaques – threatened and unique. 5.12.2018 The Earth Times Online Newspaper - Environment News
How can you describe the threats existing to species, both large and small? Using the highly-threatened primates, we can perhaps see how they have contrived to exist until the current time. Then we can better understand just how we can prevent factors simply wiping them from the face of the earth, often through ignorance, lack of care, prejudice and of course the universal profit motive. Conservation begins in our minds, but demands much more than that.

Demonstrating a " total disregard for Indigenous rights and public wishes ," the Trump administration on Friday moved to expedite oil and gas exploration in previously protected lands in Alaska. The Interior Department published a  notice  in the Federal Register announcing a public comment period and plans to draft an environmental impact statement for creating a leasing program for the coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR). The filing follows  legislation  to enable the program that was tacked on to the tax law Republicans forced through Congress last year.

In that role, she routinely went up against the US Fish and Wildlife Service when they tried to enforce portions of the Endangered Species Act in her state.
