Our mission is to provide greater ecological understanding, accuracy, and context by the media for environmental issues. To achieve these goals, we will use 3 primary methods – researching, writing and publishing editorials/commentaries in media outlets, countering inaccurate information by follow up with reporters to help education them or become a source for future news stories, and finally, by reviewing, digesting, and summarizing scientific papers and making them available to media, conservation groups, scientists, who might find the information germane to on-going policy debates. The primary issues areas of focus: livestock grazing impacts, predator restoration/unnecessary predator control, wildfire ecology and forestry issues, energy development, wilderness/park designation, biodiversity conservation and related topics.
