Review for Western Watersheds Project Inc, Hailey, ID, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I'm a former BLM biologist who has seen first hand the multiple ways that livestock production has damaged and degraded public lands. The abuses go on in spite of efforts of many employees who know, as I did, how livestock was compromising public values like water quality, soils, wildlife habitat, and even recreational opportunities (camping among cow pies is not an experience most people enjoy).

That is why I so admire the tenacity and exceptional knowledge of WWP staff. There are few organizations in the West willing to challenge the livestock juggernaut. WWP is the most dedicated, and most effective organization I know speaking up for our public lands ecological health and integrity. That is why I recently joined the board.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would try to hire more people--but of course that takes money. It's amazing how much is accomplished with a limited staff.
