Take Part:  Guns Blazing: Poachers Move from Animals to Humans

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This article just had to be the Link of the Day because of its importance.  I never really thought of poachers going after the humans that were protecting the animal victims.  Yes, I did read Dian Fossey’s biography, Woman in the Mist (I still haven’t read her actual book, Gorillas in the Mist), and I do agree that she was probably killed by a poacher.  However, I did not know that it was an ongoing problem.

Conservationists, activists, and advocates definitely need more protection when out in the field.  This article shows how we can give back to try to add more security and protection to the people who risk their lives for the animal kingdom.  This is an important issue because without people who care, endangered animals would most likely become extinct.

Check out the article and find out about the current poaching problem, and how you can help.

Happy Sunday All!
