Support Those Who Will Help Wildlife
Letters to the Editor / Anchorage Daily News / February
I apologize as an outsider for getting involved in this, but I just have to
get my say. I just read Ellie Archer's letter from your Feb. 5 edition and can
only vehemently agree. What is going on up there?
Aren't Alaskans pro-environment and pro-wildlife? Or maybe (just as it is in
every other state) special interest groups and urban politicians don't really
consider rural people's opinions important. It is the money that counts! I can
see by your headlines and your letters to the editor that things are the same
all over. The voters are forgotten once the election is over and the bureaucrats
go ahead and do whatever the they want because they think they know more than
the people that elected them.
I know one thing: I will do my best to defend the defenseless - the wild animals
only have a few friends. Do whatever you can. Give whatever you can to organizations
that have some clout with the politicians: the National Wildlife Federation,
the World Wildlife Fund, the Nature Conservancy and even the Sierra Club. It's
only money we contribute and we all can earn more of it, but once the wildlife
if gone, it will be gone forever.
