    There is an email form at the end of this site where you can send comments to the Wildlife Managers involved. I wrote a looooong letter and had a reply that it would be forwarded to the appropriate persons.

    Well I sent my comments. Pretty outrageous story. There are some AWSOME pics in the article worth seeing. I didnt realize Cobra Lilys could get so big! And sad to see it get destroyed like that and even more appalling that "authorities" thought it no big deal. I'll bet if someone sneaked into a protect forest with a chain saw and cut down some 300-year old trees for firewood, they woul be outraged. But alas...a few flowering plants?? No biggie.

    Hopefully if they get enough emails they might do something.... maybe?

    thanks for sharing the info, Tamlin. :-)

    ranchers dont care...its all about the cows to them. I say we should write up a report with all our sigintures or something (excuse me if i sound like one of those one of those people going house to house getting sigitures lol) and send em in to the cow people.

    If there were some way to make it profitable for the ranchers they MIGHT be responsive. The question is, how do you make it profitable?

    If the land owners agreed to this, someone could take clippings of a plant (if any left) that had the rare yellow flower. All profits could go toward protecting this special habitat.

    D. californica 'Othello' is in cultivation but I don't think there is enough of it to make a big enough profit to help (unfortunatly) though it is a good idea.

    Think the best bet lies in everyone just writing a civilized email, reuardless of length, to the proper people. A large enough public outcry can usually induce officials to recognize that they might have screwed up.
