HOW TO BE A WILDLIFE ADVOCATE IN 2017
Big Blend Radio interview with Adam Roberts “The Compassionate Conservationist”, CEO of Born Free USA
It’s no secret that America’s new administration has wildlife conservationists and environmental activists on edge. With temporary gag orders and federal budget cuts, along with the green light on the Dakota Access and Keystone Pipelines, and the disregard for scientific facts on climate change – where does that leave wildlife and its habitat? What happens to the bills and legislation?
Hope is still there, and we can still make a difference. Take a listen to our Big Blend Radio interview with Adam Roberts, CEO of Born Free USA, who explains how we, as wildlife advocates, can still play an effective role in Keeping Wildlife in the Wild. Communication with our representatives is still an important activity, as is working together within our communities, and voting with our dollar by supporting companies and corporations who support and practice wildlife conservation.
The glue to the puzzle is the wildlife conservation non-profit organizations like Born Free USA who actively work on legislation, education, and campaigns to protect animals. Through these organizations, we have the power to unify our voices and be heard. We must use our voices, our pens, our email and social media platforms, and if possible, invest in wildlife through volunteer time and financial support.
Born Free USA, along with the Born Free Foundation in England, are global leaders in animal welfare and wildlife conservation. Through litigation, legislation and public education, they lead vital campaigns against animals in entertainment, exotic “pets,” trapping and fur, and the destructive international wildlife trade.
