14 Nov Watch for Ed Newbold’s Seattle Times ad Nov 20
Posted Nov. 14, 2012 from Seattle, WA
Seattle Wildlife Artist is running an ad in the Seattle Times A Section on November 20 to again attempt to draw attention to the valiant do-or-die struggle against extinction being waged by the World Land Trust-US. The ad is shown below.
Now is a great time to donate to the World Land Trust as they have an anonymous matching donor FROM WASHINGTION STATE (needless to say, NOT Ed) who will double any contribution between now and the end of the year to help acquire a tract of land in Brazil’s fast disappearing Atlantic Forest. The Atlantic Forest has incredible biodiversity including perhaps the highest butterfly and moth diversity on the planet. The Red-necked Tanager shown below is one of the many endemic birds of the region.
The link to the Atlantic Forest page of Website of World Land Trust-US is here:
Or type in www.worldlandtrustus.org
The Atlantic Forest project is the second listed on the home page. Ed does not favor one project over any other.
The site is easy to use for donations large or small.
In this era where anything and everything we do somebody is willing to label “Green,” it’s worth realizing that there’s no time for word-games and hype when it comes to saving species from the ax. Ironically, this Forest’s most immediate threat comes from expansion of biofuel-agriculture.
