July 2007

Thank Scholastic for Helping Harry Potter Go Green!

On July 21st, 12 million copies of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will hit shelves around the world, and thanks to Scholastic, Inc., 65 percent of the paper used will have the Forest Stewardship Council stamp of approval.

This is HUGE news in the book publishing biz, and it helps to make great strides in the fight to protect Canada’s Boreal Forest. Now to make sure Harry’s broom is made from FSC-certified wood...

SEND SCHOLASTIC A THANK YOU:

Stop the Florida Panther Death "Toll"

Florida panthers are paying a deadly toll on the Sunshine State's highways. So far in 2007, a record number 14 panthers have died from vehicle collisions. The Florida Department of Transportation could keep this gruesome statistic from rising by making the state's roads more "panther safe." But they need to hear from you!

HELP MAKE ROADS "PANTHER SAFE!"

Last Chance to Protect Black-footed Ferrets!

It's getting down to the wire for black-footed ferrets in South Dakota's Conata Basin! The Forest Service needs YOUR INPUT by July 23, 2007 as to whether it should go forward with a plan to poison prairie dogs in the area--a move that will sabatoge recovery efforts for ferrets, one of the most endangered mammals in the U.S.
