“On Wednesday morning, activists from Greenpeace unfurled a massive yellow and orange banner with the word ‘Resist’ on a tall crane behind the White House,” read the NPR story. And resistance to this anti-environmental agenda is essential if we want to keep our country, and our planet, safe for future generations.

Donald Trump has put forth an anti-environmental group of advisors and cabinet nominees and this very thin-skinned president is taking no time in attacking our environment and the agencies created to protect it.

On Tuesday, Donald Trump signed an executive order expediting approvals for the Keystone and Dakota Access Pipelines, overturning perhaps the two biggest environmental victories of the Obama years. He also imposed a comprehensive gag order on employees of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Please take the time to read the full story by Bill McKibben at the New Yorker.

Larry Jordan was introduced to birding after moving to northern California where he was overwhelmed by the local wildlife, forcing him to buy his first field guide just to be able to identify all the species visiting his yard. Building birdhouses and putting up feeders brought the avian fauna even closer and he was hooked. Larry wanted to share his passion for birds and conservation and hatched The Birder's Report in September of 2007. His recent focus is on bringing the Western Burrowing Owl back to life in California where he also monitors several bluebird trails. He is a BirdLife Species Champion and contributes to several other conservation efforts, being the webmaster for Wintu Audubon Society and the Director of Strategic Initiatives for the Urban Bird Foundation. He is now co-founder of a movement to create a new revenue stream for our National Wildlife Refuges with a Wildlife Conservation Pass.
