What's up, Arnold?

I've been following with some interest the story of Judd Hanna's resignation from the Californial Wildlife Commission. Its no secret that Hanna supported a ban on lead shot in California condor habitat. Gov. Arnold pulled a terminator trick and asked Hanna to resign when pressured by lobbyists. If you need a reminder, check out the LA Times article.

Today the tables changed. Honestly, I didn't have a lot of hope for the folks in California. The Govenor signed a bill to ban lead shot, a success story that was badly needed.

Drummond Teacher Helps Save Loon

This story of a high school teacher in the Drummond area is a great example of how citizens are working to help wildlife, and also a reminder of how dangerous monofilament is to loons.
