    Ivory Billed Woodpecker Habitat Loss

    The Government promised to protect this once thought, extinct bird. The rediscorvery of an extinct species is a rare gift. The special interest groups win once again and the chance that this magnificent bird way now be lost...forever.

    What happened to the Wetlands Laws protecting this fragile ecological niche?

    I think that this case should serve as an example for the newly-forming NASC - on who not to rely upon to make a difference.

    It will take a large effort by, not just the NASC officers, but the membership as well.

    Let's get the NASC ball rolling before it is too late for our beloved Sarracenia.

    I clicked the link but it said it couldn't be found.
    All I have to say about this is what's more important? A chunk of woods and a bird, or the thousands of dollars that can be made my developing the land?
    Then look at the people that we have entrusted to make that decision.
    And we wonder why these things happen.

    You should cut and paste it. Much faster, and works everytime.

    I've read the article and I have to say that based the info in it that I can't say that I would oppose the pumpstation.
    We all have to compromise when it comes to situations like this. I don't see how a pumpstation miles from the woodpecker would have much of an impact on it.
    I would support a independent study before the construction continues.

    Having just one bird would be virtually impossible. I'm betting at least 4 are present.
