It is most unfortunate we continue to re-authorize livestock grazing permits. I do not believe this action to have been in the best interests of our American Pika-

Something to think about, http://www.edf.org/documents/4465_ES...%20Failure.pdf "The whooping crane, Kirtland’s warbler and the bald eagle can teach us another lesson. Their recoveries are the result of a major, long-term investment of conservation resources involving state, federal and private entities engaged in a host of activities such as habitat management, captive breeding, reintroductions, cowbird control, nest monitoring, law enforcement, research and more. Congress can set lofty goals for the Endangered Species Act, but unless it provides the resources to attain those goals, the responsibility for the Act’s ineffectiveness is hardly the Act’s alone. To date, Congress has never provided all the resources needed...The Endangered Species Act was supposed to promote a well-integrated and cooperative relationship between state and federal agencies. It hasn’t.".... and it won't.... and we're going to be even more crippled getting somewhere than in the past because pandering to big ag seems to be en vogue thanks to Tom "Villainsak".
