SCIENCE, NATURE'S RIGHTS, ANIMAL RIGHTS
Excellent site that begins to challenge corporate law, and human centered notions of property. What is discussed her corresponds closely with what I have been calling "nature's rights".

Barry Kent MacKay works for API, He is a wonderful bird artist, who has defended Snow Geese and Cormorants among many other species.

Mike Hudak is a courageous researcher who writes about the abuse of public lands in the West by cattle and cattle ranchers. He helps explain why cattle don't belong on western lands, and bison and pronghorn should be returned.
this is a good site that can be used as an introduction to Evolution. The Creationists are patiently and exhaustively shown up for their ignorance and denial of the obvious facts of nature.
Lovely site about the great environmentalist David Brower with many links.

Here are some Greenpeace discussions about the destruction of the oceans, with many species in decline or disappearing, pollution rampant, deep sea trawlers destroying the ocean bottom and reefs, illegal whaling by the Japanese and others, continuing to kill. There needs to be a moratorium on bottom trawling. This subject of stopping the rape of the seas is an important and underreported one. Here is another website about the seas....http://www.savethehighseas.org/display.cfm?ID=119
http://www.bluevoice.org/index.shtml A marvelous site with many videos about stopping whale and dolphin killing. Many lovely videos and information about how the life in the seas are being destroyed.
The destruction of forests in Papua, Brazil, Madagascar and elsewhere is very serious and impacts global warming as well as harming animals birds and others species. It is clear that the IMF, World Bank as well as corporate institutions and local governments are behind such destruction.
Photos of forest rape in Madagascar " With its rivers running blood red and staining the surrounding Indian Ocean, astronauts have remarked that it looks like Madagascar is bleeding to death."
