Posted by April Yohn from a different site
here's the direct link
http://www.herpnation.com/hn-video/h...ederal-ruling/

It's about 18 minutes long. To summarize: He discusses the groups that pressured and lobbied to get this rule through: Nature Conservancy (nature.org), Defenders of Wildlife ([url ban]) and the HSUS (humanesociety.org). Clarifies what the rule listing effects and means for those that didn't understand it (no import or transportation across state lines).

Discusses the 'true' agendas (you know.. $$). Talks about prior actions our (reptile nation) coming together was able to fight and that the fight is still not over, exploring legal options. Says the time for petitions, etc is over... only way to go forward is legal recourse, which is a federal lawsuit and they are still working on how to get it going. The focus of which will be to debunk the faulty science used to get this through in the first place. It is going to be expensive to fight.

He touches the current laws in other states that are trying to get pushed through and how those need to be addressed in addition the fund raising for the lawsuit. He says the independent Georgetown Economic survey that was funded by USARK is what helped save the 5 species that did not make the listing at this time (due to their economical impact according to statements made by Ken Salazar). Rodda and Reed have taken a lot of criticism (justly deserved imo).

Sorry for the poor grammar, typing while listening

Thank you April
Travis
