EcoRover is now The Lorax?

Journalist Jonathan Stumpf interviewed me and others for a video and article "Last Best Fish: Can Conservation & Collaboration Save the Big Hole Grayling." His good work is posted at the website NewWest (clink link for video & story--be sure to comment if you care about native fish/endangered species).

As one of "The Guardians," Jonathan characterized me as "The Lorax." Hmmm.... has a nice ring to it!

I'll try not to let it go to my head, but it's about the highest honor I've ever received!

Great post today!
The article and video were very interesting and informative. The landscapes filmed were beautiful. SUPER JOB!
Thank you all for being such good stewards of the Grayling...the land... the waters and the farmers. It seems you truly seek balance on many levels.
*hard work*
I'll finish with a Dr. Seuss quote:
“How did it get so late so soon? It's night before its afternoon. December is here before it's June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?”
It won't be too late for the Grayling... it seems to be in good hands!

The Loraz was always my favorite Seuss character. Now I'm singing "Barbaloot Suits" in my head.

Great article. Thanks for stopping by my blog. My husband corrected me as well that there are no former Eagle scouts ;)

It takes people like you who are passionate about something to save something else like the Grayling. Congrats on the interview and article...

Have a great weekend, Lorax!!!

This is the sort of story writer Bil Gilbert might have covered.

Best wishes with your quest to protect the grayling and the Big Hole River, Pat.

Your blog takes on another dimension for me after reading the article.

Dr. Eco,
wonder if working through the feds to pipe and sprinkle all irrigation water enough could be saved from evaporatoin in ditches and flood irrigation to prevent river death.
our area has had fed help to install sprinklers this year. expensive!
at least 5% evaporates as water sits in a reservoir, more in a ditch and who knows how much is lost into the ground.
in the Uinta Basin of utah from irrigation figures this year it appears that in the range of 30% is lost to seepage and evaporatoin.
good luck.
