It seems that sightings of snowy owls this season in Wisconsin are much higher than in previous years. The reason?

New Report Shows U.S. Wetland Losses Accelerating – Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership.

In essence, from 1998 to 2004 there was a net gain of 32,000 wetland acres per year. From 2004 to 2009 there was a net loss of 13,800 acres per year. Troubling figures for a country that’s looking to save more money by cutting funding for wetland conservation. What this means is that more of us in DU and other conservation groups needs to pick up our game.

After going to the page here, just scroll down slowly. It might also help if you ran the theme from your favorite horror movie through your mind while you read the comic.
