It’s time to open our eyes and look at the state in which the world is in. Climate change, habitat destruction and extinctions are here. This is not a step in the right direction. This is a step backwards that will make things worse, and we all know it. I worked with turtle monitoring on the Canadian Shield for 3 months and saw the destruction of habitat taking place simply from constructing road systems. I watched as fragmented habitats and urban sprawl reduced endangered species populations. I work in ecosystem restoration and I have to witness the mess humans leave behind, and try to fix it as best I can. Please don’t add to the mess. Be responsible and humane and think past economic development. I’m asking for this proposed amendment to be denied.
