TESRA, would for the first time, require a scientifically peer-reviewed recovery plan when a species is listed as threatened or endangered. It also provides compensation and incentives for private landowners, important because most endangered species live on private land. This will do much to improve the miserable record of the current ESA that has seen only 10 of nearly 1300 listed species recover over the act's 31-year history. We suggest you go to the link shown below and cast your entry for Chairman Pombo. Four entry fields on the ballot are mandatory. They are: -----Field 1: "What is your wildlife hero's name?" Here, of course, you should enter Chairman Richard Pombo. -----Field 2: "What's the best way to contact your nominee?" We suggest you check "Contact me first" since neither the chairman nor any member of his staff have any involvement in this campaign. -----Field 6: "Why is this person a wildlife hero?" We suggest you answer this in your own words, using input from the "Situation" section above. -----Field 7: This requires a first name, last name, e-mail address and phone number. What you enter should be what you feel comfortable with but the fields must be entered. -----Then, click on "submit."
