Gray Wolves in the Great Lakes handed a reprieve

Anyone who has been following the effort to keep our gray wolves listed as endangered species, under the Endangered Species Act, knows that it has been a battle between wolf activists imploring the use of science, and the politicians in our U.S.Congress.

But we now have a win for our wolves, and I hope it will stick for a while.
Our wolves need a break, and wolf advocates need to know
that their blood, sweat, and tears were not spilled in vain.

I have known about the bison slaughters that happen outside of Yellowstone for a while, had a chance to met a wonderful soul on Twitter, who was running a marathon to raise awareness about our bison, and the Buffalo Field Campaign.

This situation breaks my heart.
I can not direct you to a petition or an NGO to help, but I can ask you to please follow:  runningforthebuffalo ‏@running4buffalo if you are on Twitter.........

Let's help our bison.

The Tangled Garden

J.E.H. MacDonald

Today, MacDonald is viewed with general admiration for his art, with one writer commenting, "no Canadian landscape painter possessed a richer command of colour and pigment than J. E. H. MacDonald ... His brushwork is at once disciplined and vigorous. His best on-the-spot sketches possess an intensity and freshness of execution not dissimilar from Van Gogh."[11]
