Endangered species in Hawai'i: Fight for plants more than for some people and a pic

It's great that these people are fighting for the honu, silversword, and nene but Hawaiians are an endangered specie too and when I see people fight for plants and not as much for people then I question what our society values more: Plants or people?



Endangered species are threatened by House measure

On Thursday, the U.S. House of Representatives will vote on the Threatened and Endangered Species Recovery Act (HR 3824). Despite its title, the bill would gut the Endangered Species Act. The honu, silversword, and nene are a few of the many species that could lose ground if the bill passes.

Then this pic:


"Roshni Prasad fed her daughter, Shiloh, 3, a sundae yesterday during an ice cream party sponsored by Meadow Gold and KSSK at Shriners Hospital for Children. Jonathan White won the ice cream party through a radio contest, but chose to donate the party to the hospital."
