PRLOG has kindly sent us the following press release, and we are delighted to reproduce it below:
The National Anti-Roadkill Project (NARP) is proud to announce its rebirth after it hit the stage in the NYTimes with: "A Highway Campaign to Save Animals". However, it never took off, as the concept was ahead of its time. Its time has now arrived.
JUPITER, Fla. - Nov. 23, 2021 - PRLog -- Jupiter, Florida - - After being dormant since the early 1990s, NARP is in the process of gearing-up for its rebirth. At the time, governmental agencies, philanthropists and the private sector were not ready to support an organization whose mission was to protect wildlife from the hazards of our roads and highways. NARP's co-founder, Ira Fischer, believes that there are strong indications that its time has finally arrived.
Fischer points to the fact that President Biden recently signed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021 into law. It provides $350 million for new wildlife crossings to improve habitat connectivity. These funds will make roads less lethal for wildlife that must cross for their survival. It will also create passages across roads that otherwise would result in habitat fragmentation by blocking migration routes.
The fatalities of tens of millions of animals on our nation's roads need to be addressed full-throttle by an NGO dedicated to mitigating this carnage. While a few organizations, on occasion, embark upon this need on a local level, none have as their mission to ameliorate the roadkill issue.
The time is long past due to address this vital issue head-on with a new paradigm that finds it unacceptable to continue the mindset that maiming and killing wildlife is simply a price to pay for the convenience of driving in the modern age. NARP will champion intolerance for the needless toll suffered by animals on our roads by embarking on campaigns to address this matter with a multi-dimensional approach commensurate with the magnitude of the problem. NARP will launch a website once it is fully operational. In the interim, you can learn more about NARP on the Roads Kill page of Fischer's personal website.
About Ira Fischer
Regarding NARP, Ira is unusually generous in recognising the role played by fellow animal rights activist Patrice Greanville in this particular field: "I give special thanks to Patrice Greanville, who was the visionary that founded the National Anti-Roadkill Project in the early 1990s. Patrice was a man ahead of his time, but, hopefully, the time has finally arrived for NARP to implement its mission. I am forever grateful to Patrice, who took me under his wings and showed me the path to his noble goal."
Thank you for visiting our animal defence section. Before leaving, please join us in a moment of compassion and reflection.
The wheels of business and human food compulsions are implacable and totally lacking in compassion. This is a downed cow, badly hurt, but still being dragged to slaughter. Click on this image to fully appreciate this horror repeated millions of times every day around the world. With plentiful non-animal meat substitutes that fool the palate, there is no longer reason for this senseless suffering. Meat consumption is a serious ecoanimal crime. The tyranny of the palate must be broken. Please consider changing your habits in this regard.
