Hi everyone! I’m new to the group and just wanted to submit info about a non-profit I’m working with, Earthjustice (http://earthjustice.org
). Hopefully I'm not breaking any rules here- please let me know if this thread should be moved elsewhere!
The campaign I am working on directly is called Save Our Skins (http://earthjustice.org/wolfsos
), and it was created to combat Congressional plans that will greatly affect the wilderness and endangered species. Save Our Skins passes the soapbox to the animals themselves - each animal uses a Twitter account to narrate their stories. Be sure to follow the Salmon (http://earthjustice.org/salmonsos
) - this guy is mostly known as a delicious sushi roll, though he’s making leaps to get all eyes, ears, and gills focused on his shrinking water supply. In Congress, something very fishy is afloat….
Follow the salmon and his friends gray wolf and mama polar bear. All three are resilient creatures who did not survive this long just to have politicians put their existence up for a vote. Please help us get the word out about this vital issue by sending a letter (1) to Senators Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell. Earthjustice aims to send 37,000 letters telling Congress that we oppose these attacks on the ESA, and we need you to help us reach our goal! These animals deserve to be on this earth as much as the rest of us: extinction is not an option. Check out more info at our Social Media Release (2), and feel free to share the news right away via Twitter – click here (3)!
I’m curious to hear your thoughts! Which animal do you most identify with? Are there any other endangered species that you’d like to see extra attention called to? Let me know if you have any questions, too!
