Sitting at the table isn't enough (if you are already firmly ensconced there, ahem). You need to provoke change. Endlessly studying, discussing, funding, strategizing, planning, cooperating, etc., etc., ad nauseum doesn't mean a goddamn thing to us. Saving the river- say, THE SAN PEDRO RIVER- would mean something. To us, to the Huachuca water umbel, the loach minnow and spikedace, the jaguar, etc., etc. ad un-nauseum. To real, living breathing things that depend on healthy, functioning ecosystems.*
*Um, that means all of us, whether you know it or not.
