Historic Victory for Wildlife

Historic Victory for Wildlife

By SOP newswire2

We did it! Thanks to thousands of Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund supporters just like you, we were able to accomplish something amazing for our wildlife: Senator Barack Obama will be our next President -- and many new conservation leaders have been elected to Congress.

I want to personally thank you for your help reaching millions of voters in key states to make these victories a reality. Please watch my video detailing the work you made possible throughout this campaign...and what this election means for the future of wildlife.

You Made This Victory Possible -- Watch the Video!

From our powerful TV ads exposing Governor Sarah Palin`s terrible record on aerial gunning of wolves to our on-the-ground campaign that knocked on tens of thousands of doors across the country, your support made a big difference in this election. In fact, the Obama/Biden ticket won every swing state where we ran our ads on Governor Palin`s record (with the possible exception of Missouri).

Please watch my short video about this historic day.

The election may be over, but there is much work to be done. Thanks to you and the tremendous support of other Defenders Action Fund activists, we now have the opportunity to begin our work to undo the eight years of damage caused by the Bush/Cheney Administration.

It won`t be easy, and there are plenty of tough fights ahead. But you can be sure that Defenders Action Fund will work with the new Administration -- and conservation champions of all political stripes -- to enact legislation and policies that protect our wildlife.

For now, let`s celebrate this historic day and the hope it holds for our wolves, polar bears and other wildlife -- and please accept my most sincere thanks for helping make it happen!
