Great program - thanks for the heads up...Very ambutious, and I wish them well. It would be great to get these areas protected - but as the article states, climate change is a major contributor to the problem...It will be a great acheivement to protect these areas = but without dealing with the (or a) basic problem like climate change may make these efforts mute...Just adding some thoughts - but again a great effort!!!!

If only the ones responsible could just "look" for a minute and see what they are destroying. If only they would just wake up and see these lives are just as important as evryone else.
