Stop the Madness: More Whooping Cranes Shot

10,000 Birds

Seriously, hunters. (Or, Or, rather, jerks who give the vast majority of ethical hunters a bad name.) As if the last month’s revelation of a pair of murdered Whooping Cranes wasn’t devastating enough, the bad news just keeps on coming. Another pair of Whoopers has been shot , this time in Louisiana. The female was killed but experts suggest the male will survive, although perhaps without the ability to fly.

The Duck Stamp and The Wildlife Conservation Stamp Living in Symbiosis?

million hunters. This means that only 11% of hunters buy the Duck Stamp raising approximately $25 million a year. With the trend of increasing numbers of wildlife enthusiasts and decreasing numbers of hunters , the National Wildlife Refuge System needs the support of more non-hunters. We have hunters among our core supporters who believe strongly in this idea of a new Wildlife Conservation Stamp, and they say they would purchase both stamps!

Environmental Economics

Therefore, creating a market for wildlife is not fair: It especially bothers him — and other hunters — that those with means can buy public licenses through private outlets, paying thousands of dollars to move to the head of the line.

The North American Model of Wildlife Conservation and Who Pays for It

10,000 Birds

But the tenets of the North American Model were developed in the 19th century, when wildlife ethics and science were a mere glimmer of what we understand today. The system was intended as a hunter-centric model, both guided by and benefitting consumptive interests. A new willingness among scientists to consider certain moral and ethical implications with respect to wild animals, where previously utilitarian ideas prevailed, including ideas of intrinsic value.

They want, especially, to distinguish their role as non-hunting conservationists, without in any way competing or detracting from the existing heritage — a way to work in confluence, while also generating the community passions that the Duck Stamp does for hunters.

The Duck Stamp and Lack of National Wildlife Refuge Funding

10,000 Birds

They don’t take into account the valid concerns non-hunters have about buying the stamp, which fall into two main areas: 1. Many wildlife watchers, birders and photographers don’t want to support a stamp that is so intimately and historically associated with hunting. 2. Duck Stamp sales to non-hunters are not accurately calculated to reflect their contributions – which tends to short change the conservation goals of non-consumptive users.

We actually spent considerable time searching unsuccessfully for this highly sought-after bird; however I did suspect they were not gone, as several hunters I interviewed knew the bird and claimed it still existed. Here local hunters had known about the colony and for generations had been harvesting the birds by simply picking the adults off their nests during the breeding season.

Why vegans are so f **g annoying


They think they’re the only ethical people. Don’t pretend being ethical has anything to do with helping others. Ricky Gervais taught me that you can love animals and still eat them, as long as you’re not a hunter. Vegans are all the same. They love animals more than people, and that means hanging out with them is never fun. So while I have a vegan communities audience, allow me explain why I find vegans so annoying.

“Bro Veganism” and “Dude Veganism” are trying too hard to be masculine


Ditching the idea of the hunter gatherer, red meat-eating, grill-dad stereotype, there is no shortage of guys who feel the need to continue to assert their masculinity and value after going vegan. I am hopeful that ethical veganism can help us all to see the dangers in oppressive systems, no matter what form they take.” For a small number of men, veganism and masculinity cannot be separated.

On Closing the Culture Gap

The Green Changemakers

For most of our species’ existence, all members of hunter-gatherer bands possessed virtually the entire body of their group’s non-genetic information—its culture. The idea is that the MAHB might become a basic mechanism to expose society to the full range of population-environment-resource-ethics-power issues, and sponsor research on how to turn that knowledge into the required actions. Humanity’s future hangs on finding broad agreement on such major eco-ethical decisions.
