A Little Blog Among Friends
The Born Free USA team works with terrific determination every day to help animals everywhere. And it is very important that we share the details of our campaigns, animal rescues and successes with you — our loyal supporters and Action Alert teammates — on a regular basis.
Clearly, our vital work requires expertise, planning and perseverance. Often, however, we come upon a situation or story in the media that makes us want to react — scream, share, decry, satirize.
That’s why I blog as often as I can. Sometimes we need to lend a passionate … a compassionate … voice to the issues facing animals around the world. Good or bad. Michelle Obama’s wearing mammoth ivory? International sales of stockpiled ivory have been outlawed? A bird-poison manufacturer’s gone out of business? These types of things speak to my soul, and by hammering out a blog I can share them with you, as quickly as I can.
This fall, we streamlined our blog lineup. We now offer three distinct voices, from different locations and perspectives. Senior Program Associate Barry Kent MacKay keeps you posted, in a delightfully detailed way, about Canadian issues. Tim Ajax, who directs the Born Free USA Primate Sanctuary, has a crisp and engaging style that lets you virtually mingle with our resident, peacefully retired monkeys. And I, well … I’m likely to chirp about almost anything animal-related (and soon, perhaps I’ll start tweeting, too!). If you haven’t done so already, please considering subscribing to all three blogs via an RSS feed, which delivers them directly to your desktop!
My blogs don’t take long to read. With luck they entertain. And I hope they inspire you to join us, however you can, in our shared mission to Keep Wildlife in the Wild®.
Yours at the keyboard,
P.S.Our partnership is never meant to be one-sided! While I love sharing my thoughts with you through my blog, I also want to learn more about you and what you’re passionate about. Please take a few minutes to complete our online survey and we’ll make sure to keep your views in mind as work (together) for animals.
