This post is a combined “Thank you” to those making attempts to help continue the documentation and a plea for foks to support those efforts… and this work.
Two pages on facebook have been created.
One to help with the basic expenses of “the road and research.”
And one to help replace my failing vehicle. I have literally put over 70,000 miles on a 98 Explorer since Twin Peaks last fall. The vehicle has been amazing but is now in need of repair. It is not the kind of vehicle to take into the desert in winter, except for smaller trips. I literally drive it now wondering if the truck will make it back out.
Both of these efforts are being done by folks that believe in this work and the gestures have touched me deeply. I often feel rather “on the fringe” of the advocacy groups. Due to the large amount of time spent literally isolated I do not have the “social” bonds that many do. I do the work simply to have the documentation reach the public. These gestures have given me “heart” that the information I bring is appreciated and that many want it to continue.
I do need support to stay out and to continue the paperwork on both the Humane handling case and the First Amendment issues in Federal Court.
So I thank you all…. sincerely. I hope that together we can continue to shed light on the daily activities involved in the management of wild herds.
