Tea Posted November 21, 2008 Report Share Posted November 21, 2008 When we started going to meetings with other conservation organizations I thought it would have the camaraderie of the wildlife rehabbers and frankly of the various livestock and sustainible farm meetings I've attended. But I am troubled. I tried to tell them of the work we are doing and they pooh pooh it. (providing LGD and trained interns to watch herds. For free.) I tried to tell them that the small producer cannot spend alot of money on large predator friendly production because they are not making enough money. They need help and common sense solutions. They would not listen to me. Why I wonder? They talked about getting funding from the government. They talked about educating the public. The normal rancher in these areas knows alot about predators. First hand experience in most cases. I am kind of sad about this. The conversation was 4 people out of twenty talking and no one else allowed to tell what they are doing or could do. Boy I don't get it? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
