American Zoo and Aquarium Association (AZA)

Field Trip Earth

Thanks as always for your support of "Field Trip Earth." This is a special message about a petition drive being led by the American Zoo and Aquarium Association (AZA). This petition asks the United States government to dedicate at least $2 million annually to important conservation programs protecting elephants, rhinos, tigers, marine turtles and great apes. By signing this online petition, you can help protect these animals from poaching, habitat loss and the other dangers that threaten their very existence.

The North Carolina Zoological Society--sponsor of "Field Trip Earth"--is helping AZA gather signatures to this petition. Please take a minute to sign. To do so, please go to the Society website at and click on the "Sign Our Petition for Wildlife" graphic in the right-hand margin. You will then be linked to the online survey.

At the end of February 2006, the signatures will be delivered to the U.S. Congress. AZA is hoping to gather two million signatures by then.

Thank you again for your support. We'll back in touch soon with information about Cameroon's elephants, red wolves, black bears and other species. In the meantime, if you have questions about this message, or if you wish to be removed from the "Field Trip Earth" mailing list, please contact the FTE WebMaster.

Elephants of Cameroon
Another interesting article by Mark MacAllister. After arriving in Yaounde, the team l traveled to Boumbabek Nki (which lies just west of the newly-designated Lobeke National Park) and collar one elephant. While in Boumbabek, Dr. Mike also brought website visitors up-to-date on the effort to protect that region as Cameroon's newest national park.
