Dear (Government offical)
Please work now to protect Klamath Basin farmers, ranchers, and
wildlife and the economies that depend on them. Farmers in the Klamath
River Basin are facing a disaster this summer. All Oregonians need to pull
together and support efforts of assistance to farming community’s hurt
by this situation.
In addition, we must account for the other economies outside of
agriculture that rely on the basin. Many people from around Oregon depend
on the products grown in this community as well as people from across the
nation coming to the region each year to enjoy its wildlife and scenic
beauty. But because of environmental issues this year, the community
along with all the wildlife will be facing disaster. The economic loss of
farmers is very real and it is vital that we do not forget that many
people have a stake in the outcome of this crisis. It is critical that we
protect all of our wildlife and this community.
The Klamath River Basin is a spectacular natural treasure, home to
a tremendous variety of waterfowl, bald eagles and wildlife. As we seek
solutions to the water crisis facing the region this summer, we must not
allow the health of this community to be sacrificed. The current Klamath
crisis was created as a result of the ESA. The drought, bad decisions by
the state and federal governments, and the slowing economy are
contributing culprits for the problem. In the long term we must find
solutions to help the Klamath Basin farmers, ranchers, and wildlife to
find some balance with this water issue to where the whole community will
not be at risk of survival.
The Endangered Species Act has the wrong approach and needs to be
reformed. We cannot harm the health of our communities to get through this
crisis - we need long term solutions.
The federal government has made promises for water and now it
taking that away from the whole community and wildlife. All efforts by all
officials in Government are needed to help the survival of the whole
community in the Klamath River Basin and help find a balance where water
can be shared and all can survive.
