We want to thank you first of all for supporting us and realizing the wrong that has occurred in Depue. Much of the success of achieving this clean-up will rely on the public to urge their representatives to act, or pressure these governing offices to make change and put forth an efffort that is convincing and that does not revert back to the same old attitude.
These giant companies- like Goliath ignoring David- and know too well nothing will be done and they will not have to account for their non-action.
If they win, we all lose.
Scenes like this could possibly never be seen again if something isn't done. For years the Illinois EPA has stalled and kept any type of clean up from moving forward. These Eagles as well as Pelicans and many more wildlife depend on this lake for food and a place to exist. As our society and suburban sprawl take up new land, this wild life will have nowhere to survive but here. These waters are important to our wildlife and most importantly to the people of DePue. Your donations are needed as well as your voice and any time you have to just speak out and spread the word of our cause. This eagle had just swooped down to catch a fish to eat.
Your donation is appreciated and will be used to create awareness and give Depue a fighting chance to make a difference in their future. If you prefer to mail your donation, please make checks payable to:
