ok here's my entry into the contest...the California Dept of Fish and Game is having a little contest teaching kids to hate certain plants and animals because they are dubbed "non-native"..
kids, it's all bullshit!! it appears that one "scientist", Valerie Cook Fletcher, is concerned that non-native crayfish are bullying native crayfish!!
WTF kinda nonsense is that...you simply can't remove all the species that you think don't belong here!! it's foolish, stupid, a waste of resources and a bunch of propaganda..
HAIL TO THE THE FENNEL AND THISTLE!! the birds and bees love it and so do I!! and Nature disperses the seeds as she sees fit
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) is holding a new "Race to Protect Your Favorite Place" Youth Poster Contest. The contest is being offered by CDFW’s Invasive Species Program as part of California Invasive Species Action Week, Aug. 2-10.
There are three age divisions, for youths in grades 2-5, 6-8 and 9-12. Participants should create an original poster that shows an invasive species that threatens their favorite outdoor place and how they can take action to help protect it.
According to CDFW environmental scientist Valerie Cook Fletcher, many people don’t realize the potential implications of very simple acts. For example, that the planting of certain non-native ornamental plants can ultimately end up destroying the quality of our waterways and lands, or that the release of non-native crayfish used as bait during fishing trips has likely resulted in the decline of California’s native crayfish, and impacted other species dependent on the habitat. Action Week provides an important opportunity to educate adults and children about such invasive species.
"California’s greatest asset in invasive species management is an informed public," said Cook Fletcher.
