Conservation versus Environmentalist is a constant battle as many states look to find ways to deal with an overpopulation of animals, whether they be deer, black bear, wild pigs, racoons or beavers.
While some believe that man has wreaked havoc on the environment and that all animals have a right to live just as much as humans, conservationists believe in balance and controlling and managing wildlife so it is beneficial to both animals and humankind.
Some animals have been hunted to near extinction and due to laws protecting them their numbers have increased dramatically. States are now dealing with over-population of many animals and are grappling with ways to deal with the problems overpopulation has created, whether it be the transmittal of diseases to car accidents to damage to farms and forests.
NJ, one of the most densely populated states, is dealing with this problem and the conflict that arises when one side does not believe hunting is the answer and that humans should alter their behavior and the conservation side that believes human involvement will make a better and safer environment.
Dan Roberts, writer for Ammoland, joins "Common Sense" to discuss conservation versus environmentalism and how hunting, fishing and the role of controlling and maintaining the environment allow men and wildlife to peacefully co-exist.
Hosts K. Simba Wiltz and Asli Goncer talk about conservation in its many forms, specifically about big cats and the techniques used to make the point for many people. What exactly is a capstone species, and why is it so hard to define? Learn more on this episode of CFAR Sounding.
A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself.
Forests are the lungs of our land,
purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people.
~ Franklin D. Rosevelt
Jay D. Alexander is the president and founder with the non-partisan grassroots non-profit called Civilian Conservation Corps Initiative and their goal is to re-establish the US Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). Since his ranger service at Raccoon Creek he has been an advocate for their re-establishment.
Jay will be talking to us about the revitalization effort of the Civilian Conservation Corps Initiative and what it involves and how you can contact your Representatives to get them to cosponsor “HR188 - The 21st Century Civilian Conservation Corps Act” which is sponsored by Ohio Representative Marcy Kaptur. HR188 is a job creation program that re-establishes a Civilian Conservation Corp that puts to work unemployed and underemployed civilians to advance useful public works projects aimed at safeguarding natural resources and developing new transportation and infrastructure.

Join us LIVE Friday night as we take a hard look at what desperate measures we must take to keep biodiversity alive. Listen in as we welcome the often controversial but undeniably personable, living legend Tom Crutchfield returns to the UJR show.

As Founder and Executive Director of the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) since 1990, Dr. Laurie Marker pioneered new ideas in cheetah conservation, and has formed cooperative alliances on behalf of the cheetah that had never before been possible. She is recognised as one of the world’s leading cheetah experts. She conducted ground-breaking research on the re-introduction of captive-born cheetahs into the wild. It was at this time that she learned about the conflict between livestock farmers and cheetahs.In 1990, Laurie founded her international non-profit organisation and set up its headquarters in Namibia in 1991. From humble beginnings in a tiny farmhouse in rural Namibia to an unparalleled conservation model for predator conservation, Laurie has built a world-renowned organisation.
Laurie’s tireless work to unite a nation, continent, and the world in the effort to save the cheetah is impressive.Laurie chairs the Conservancy Association of Namibia (CANAM). She has learned that with improved livestock and wildlife management techniques, cheetahs, people and livestock can peacefully co-exist.
Laurie has received many international awards for her work in cheetah conservation. In 2000 she was recognised as one of Time Magazine’s Heroes for the Planet and in 2008 was presented with the Gold Medal Award from the Society of Women Geographers. She also received the Conservation Medal of Lifetime Achievement Award from the Zoological Society of San Diego, was the Intel Environmental Prize Laureate of the 2008 Tech Award, a nominee for the 2008 and 2010 Indianapolis Prize, the 2009 Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Wildlife Film Festival, and the 2010 Tyler Prize for Environmental Achievement.
Have a Magical Week,

Join Dr. Simba Wiltz and Asli Goncer as they continue their conversation about conservation and its techniques. Discussion about capstone species leads into discussion on how we can reintroduce cats to the wild--but like everything with nature, results may vary.

Pete Bethune, founder of Earthrace Conservation
In his own words: "Conservation is uniting people in a similar way; however, the sense of belonging and contribution is much stronger. People are willing to sacrifice much more in support of their tribe. Further to this, their tribe is one of many sub-tribes making up the conservation movement in general. So all the conservation groups, including Earthrace, are all sub-tribes with converging values and ideals, and together we make up a very considerable tribe that is a growing and mobile force around the globe."
Earthrace Conservation is a powerful fusion of direct action, knowledge and expertise, education, and most importantly, passion, which we strongly believe will grow into one of the most effective marine conservation groups in the world.
The oceans cover over 70% of the earth’s surface – they are vast. The scale of the problems and issues being faced by marine mammals and the habitats they live in is equally immense.
In October 2013, Pete, an Earthrace team of ex-services personnel (The Operatives) and a volunteer support crew, plus the new Sealegs amphibious craft, returned home after a three month campaign in Costa Rica helping to tackle pirate vessels fishing illegally around the coast.
