OK, bitches! Money—>where mouth is. I’ve been so obsessed with my whistling whales that I’ve decided to step up and do something about it. Starting next week, I’m a month-over-month charitable contributor to the World Wildlife Fund. Their goals, listed below, are nothing but admirable, and if any charity can accomplish them, it’d be the one that pinned that *other* WWF!: “To stop the degradation of the planet’s natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature, by:

* conserving the world’s biological diversity
* ensuring that the use of renewable resources is sustainable
* promoting the reduction of pollution and wasteful consumption

WWF’s conservation results include the protection of 96 million acres of Canadian wilderness through the Endangered Spaces Campaign; the development and implementation of recovery plans for a number of species, ***including the St. Lawrence beluga whale*** and the right whale; the banning of carbofuran, a grasshopper spray implicated in the decline of the burrowing owl; and the protection of thousands of acres of tropical forests throughout Latin America.”
