Endangered Species Recovery: Finding the Lessons, Improving the Process
Endangered Species Recovery: Finding the Lessons, Improving the
Endangered Species Recovery presents case studies of prominent species recovery programs in an attempt to explore and analyze their successes, failures, and problems, and to begin to find ways of improving the process. It is the first effort to engage social scientists as well as biologists in a wide-ranging analysis and discussion of endangered species conservation, and provides valuable insight into the policy and implementation framework of species recovery programs. The book features a unique integration of case studies with theory, and provides sound, practical ideas for improving endangered species policy implementation.

Endangered Species: Management Improvements Could Enhance Recovery Program
Endangered Species: Management Improvements Could Enhance Recovery
In response to a congressional request, GAO examined possible implementation deficiencies under the Endangered Species Program to determine: (1) the extent of recovery of domestic threatened and endangered species; (2) federal agencies' progress in developing recovery plans; and (3) whether the agencies implemented their recovery plans.GAO found that it was unable to measure program success because: (1) few domestic species were officially declared either extinct or recovered; (2) the Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) lacked centralized information on species' movement toward or away from recovery; (3) increased work loads and funding shortfalls hampered FWS and NMFS recovery efforts; (4) FWS did not adhere to its priority system for preparing and updating recovery plans, allocating funds, or tracking recovery activities; and (5) FWS concentrated its recovery funds on highly visible species and those species that were approaching recovery, rather than prioritizing the most endangered species and those actions needed to prevent future extinctions. GAO also found that: (1) the agencies had not initiated many planned recovery tasks; and (2) as of September 30, 1987, the agencies had approved plans for 56 percent of the domestic species ...

Prairie Night: Black-Footed Ferrets and the Recovery of Endangered Species
Prairie Night: Black-Footed Ferrets and the Recovery of
Once abundant throughout the grassland prairie that stretches from Canada to Mexico, black-footed ferrets today are North America's most endangered mammal. Totally dependent upon prairie dogs for food and shelter, black-footed ferrets fell victim to their own evolutionary specialization when prairie dog colonies were targeted for eradication because they were thought to interfere with ranching. An unparalleled campaign of poisoning, begun in the first half of this century, reduced prairie dogs to 2 percent of their original range. Black-footed ferrets, animals that once coexisted with hundreds of millions of prairie dogs, were thought by 1979 to be extinct.An insider's critique of endangered-species policy in action, Prairie Night combines an understanding of the biology and natural history of the black-footed ferret with a record of the often controversial decisions on how to save it. In the early 1980s, biologists discovered a few remaining ferrets in the wild. The authors, all of whom worked for many years on ferret recovery programs, describe the turf wars that erupted among state, federal, and private groups over whether and how to intervene.The fate of the black-footed ferret remains in question - especially as programs to poison prairie dogs continue at the government's ex...

Songs for the Wild
Songs for the
Songs for the Wild was another breakout production by Stevan Pasero. This CD followed his first original CD called Seasons, yet it is much spicier, fiery and showcases his fluent Latin-flamenco chops. Joined by his best friend and counterpart, percussionist Christopher Bock, this CD is exciting, yet melodic, percussive, yet richly harmonic. Fans that have followed Stevan s impressive career are constantly amazed and energized by his versatility, technique and his compositional/improvisational skills. Stevans artistic career spans classical, jazz, world and Latin styles. Typically this could alienate loyal fans, yet it seems that listeners worldwide have embraced Stevans multi-faceted interests as his recordings have sold millions and millions internationally. This collection of work was aired extensively on major radio stations across the country and also supported a rigorous touring schedule with his sextet featuring keyboardist Michael Becker, bassists Kai Eckhardt and Dennis Harper, saxophonist Zach Johnson, oboist Dana Bauer and, of course one of the truly great percussion players, Christopher Bock. ARTIST NOTES: Stevan Pasero is known worldwide as one of the most influential and versatile guitarists/composers of the past decade. Guitar aficionados love him, fans around the w...

To help separate the whey from the curds, chemicals or animal-based enzymes are often used, adding one more unnatural ingredient and processing step to the process Where does the milk for Wild Whey come from? The milk comes from Australian dairy cows that graze on pastures year round.
