As an artist, wolf advocate, educator & activist it’s all complimentary and rolled into one spiritual component; a larger whole. Why separate them when they belong together for one purpose. I believe saving wolves could save the earth. The last 4 decades have been spent saving one of the most maligned creatures on earth, only to return to the same age old hatred. I believe wolves to be the scapegoats of a much larger picture. The big picture involves special interests based solely in what they can get out of a resource. It boils down to exploitation of natural resources for pure economic gain. Dismantle the Endangered Species Act and they gain control over the resources they seek. The Endangered Species Act protects imperiled species, and critical habitat. There are those who will not compromise, and will take what they want without regard for the future. We must stand firm, because our mother, our earth is not the resource. Earth is the source of all life.
…Apollo 14 astronaut, Edgar Mitchell, returning to earth from the moon in February 1971, “Was filled with an inner conviction as certain as any mathematical equation he’d ever solved. He knew that the beautiful blue world to which he was returning is part of a living system, harmonious and whole – and that we all participate, as he expressed it later, ‘in a universe of consciousness’.”
March for Science
MARCH WITH US
Satellite Marches are solidarity events inspired by the March for Science, and organized by volunteers around the world. If you can’t make it to Washington, D.C. then you can join or host a Satellite March near you. There are marches being planned across the United States and internationally. To help us best connect you with local organizers, stay up to date with the latest march information, or offer to volunteer for or start a march in your area, please use the form below.

“What we think we know – is that there’s some kind of electrochemical communication between the roots of the trees. Like the synapses between neurons. Each tree has ten to the fourth connections to the trees around it, and there are ten to the twelfth trees on Pandora.” ~ Dr. Grace Augustine, Avatar
The March for Science is a celebration of our passion for science and a call to support and safeguard the scientific community. Recent policy changes have caused heightened worry among scientists, and the incredible and immediate outpouring of support has made clear that these concerns are also shared by hundreds of thousands of people around the world. Mischaracterization of science as a partisan issue, which has given policymakers permission to reject overwhelming evidence, is a critical and urgent matter. It is time for people who support scientific research and evidence-based policies to take a public stand and be counted.
ON APRIL 22, 2017, WE WALK OUT OF THE LAB AND INTO THE STREETS.
We are scientists and science enthusiasts. We come from all races, all religions, all gender identities, all sexual orientations, all abilities, all socioeconomic backgrounds, all political perspectives, and all nationalities. Our diversity is our greatest strength: a wealth of opinions, perspectives, and ideas is critical for the scientific process. What unites us is a love of science, and an insatiable curiosity. We all recognize that science is everywhere and affects everyone.
Science is often an arduous process, but it is also thrilling. A universal human curiosity and dogged persistence is the greatest hope for the future. This movement cannot and will not end with a march. Our plans for policy change and community outreach will start with marches worldwide and a teach-in at the National Mall, but it is imperative that we continue to celebrate and defend science at all levels – from local schools to federal agencies – throughout the world.
