TOMORROW IS NATIONAL THREATENED SPECIES DAY

GOING... GOING... GONE!


It is an old wives tale that the wildlife left homeless after their forests are logged just bunk up in the nearest remaining forest. This is utter balderdash and we should stop spreading these types of childhood fantasies as honest truths.


Once their habitat has been destroyed, the displaced wildlife mostly die because there are simply not enough resources to go around, and many of our forest animals are territorial and will fight to the death over dwindling habitat and resources.


Those cute little blue wrens whose forest home has been destroyed won’t stand a chance with the wrens next door, competing for finite supplies of food and homes and mates. So next time you hear the convenient fairy tale of the poor little homeless critters pleading with their neighbours for a share of their patch – don’t be fooled! – the world does not work this way. Stop perpetuating this false message and start learning the facts.


We do not have to continue our relentless destruction of the homes of threatened species and we don’t have to sentence our wildlife to death. This national threatened species day – let’s put an end to native forest logging and let’s give our wildlife a fighting chance.


DOING IT FOR THE FORESTS


Wildlife Love Poem


Show us you love our wildlife

Show us you’ll really fight

Don’t take their homes for granted

Just act and do what’s right

When your grandkids ask sincerely

How you helped to make things thrive

Tell them you did everything

That’s why they’re still alive
