> Dear Ks-listers,
> On July 6th, 2009, Kansas Ornithological and six other state  
> wildlife/conservation organizations, filed an emergency petition  
> with KDWP to list the Lesser Prairie Chicken (Tympanuchus  
> pallidicinctus) as a threatened species on the state's Threatened  
> and Endangered list.  This week I have been sending press releases  
> to various wildlife agencies and numerous newspapers across Kansas  
> about our petition.  As many of you already know, Kansas has  
> approximately 50% of all remaining LPC in the world, and with the  
> huge declines in all populations across its fragmented range,  
> protecting the Kansas population becomes more important in the  
> struggle to protect this species from extinction.
> I can't thank Mark Robbins, and Gene Young enough for all they have  
> done by drafting this emergency petition.  I also need to thank  
> Chuck Otte who wrote the press release I am sending out.  Chuck has  
> also put the complete petition and all the documentation online at:
>  Mark, Gene, Chuck or  
> myself will keep everyone abreast of the developments that pertains  
> to this petition.  Thanks, and have a great weekend!  Enjoy the  
> lack of heat and humidity that is forecasted for the next few days!
