Doing the Right Thing...


There are a couple of events taking place next week that have to do with endangered species that I wanted to highlight here at Sonoran Connection. The first has to do with the last wild herd of buffalo at Yellowstone National Park. Next week Mike Meese co-founder and President of the Buffalo Field Campaign will be coming to the University of Arizona in Tucson to give presentations about the work of his group in Yellowstone. I have long been concerned about the treatment of the Yellowstone herd and have followed the Buffalo Field Campaign's struggle to save the bison against powerful anti buffalo interests in Montana.
I will be attending at least one of the presentations and look forward to meeting Mike and hearing about this important issue.
The dates and times are as follows:    4/18/12 @ 6 P.M.
                                                          Nugent Building Room 205
