It is really a shame

It is really a shame to hear that the current administration is trying to underhandedly undermine the meager protections that are in place for clean air.  It is also a shame to hear that the same administration is trying to eliminate the soundscape protection initiative for the national parks.  We must protect the few wild places left before there is nothing left to save.  If we, as a people, cannot respect the need for wilderness and human free soundscapes then we are severely limiting our time on this planet.

It has been too long since I have posted to this blog. I will have to try to use this as a vehicle to share thoughts and feelings of the every changing world of nature sounds recording and wildlife photography.
Stay tuned...
