Treasures From The KBOO Archive: Makah Whaling

Treasures from the KBOO Public Affairs Archive - Makah Whaling

In 1999, the Makah tribe on Washington's Olympic Peninsula asked the International Whaling Commission for permission to kill up to five whales. Whaling had been fundamental to the Makah until about a century ago, and they wanted to return to the practice, both for its cultural and nutritional value. Some animal rights advocates and environmentalists were opposed.  In March of that year, one such activist, Ben White, and the head of the Makah Whaling Commission, Denise Dailey, participated in a discussion at the Public Interest Environmental Law Conference in Eugene. Must we choose between animal rights and indigenous rights, or can both be protected?

Groups Petition For Endangered Woodpecker

On Wednesday, four conservation groups sought federal protections for the black-backed woodpecker under the Endangered Species Act. The John Muir Project, Blue Mountains Biodiversity Project, the Center for Biological Diversity, and the Biodiversity Conservation Alliance filed the petition together.

Less than 2,000 of the woodpeckers remain in the dense forest stretching from Oregon’s Eastern Cascades to the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California. Another 800 live in South Dakota’s Black Hills. The woodpecker’s populations are threatened by what environmentalists are calling excessive logging, meant to reduce forest fires.

KBOO’s Zeke Harrington spoke with Karen Coulter, Director of the Blue Mountains Biodiversity Project, about the petition.

Most of the lakes and marshes of the Klamath Basin were "reclaimed" and drained for agriculture nearly 100 years ago--only 20% remain, but the Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuge Complex on the Oregon/California border, is still the most important waterfowl habitat on the Pacific Flyway. However, last month over 10,000 birds died there from overcrowding as a result of a water cut-off by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. This was the biggest die-off in a decade.
