Time to take a stand if wildlife/raptors/bats matter to you

Please take the time to read the U.S. Fish and Wildlife proposal allowing more killing of Eagles in the United States to accomodate wind farms and their companies. Those of us involved in wildlife rehabilitation know that this has been going on for many years, the ugly little secret the wind industry doesn't want you to know about. There are other alternatives, but as always, cost outweighs the death of many many birds and bats every year. This is NOT a CLEAN industry as many have convinced their selves of. This petition can also be signed, adding your name to the Audubon's position on this matter. Lives are at stake.

Feathered brothers and sisters, you came to us broken and as you bled…….we saw you desperate, dehydrated, desiccated, diseased, distressed, emaciated, famished, frayed, frightened, helpless, hungry, ragged, ravenous, shaken, shocked, shot, sickly, stressed, stunned, tattered, thirsty, traumatized, torn, weary and wounded. Defiantly, you stood us off with your last breath as we tried to tend to you. We saw you come in as cute, naked, fuzzy, cuddly youth, as mischievous, defiant adolescents, as fierce, regal rulers of the sky and as cunning, maimed elders whose time on earth was almost done. You endeared yourselves to us, bit us, charmed us, footed us, delighted us, hissed at us, talked to us, mantled at us, and graced us with your presence.

Some of you mended and were able to go on your way, never looking back. Some of you were injured in ways that prevented you from going, so you stayed with us to teach us…….And we came to love you. Others were too far gone, and you went home - where you fly free from pain with the Great One. All of you have touched us, and we are changed because of you.
