"Field Notes"...
An Open Letter From Lynda Watson

     My Heartfelt Thanks to all of you wonderful people who continue to help and support Project: Prairie Dog—and me—in this huge undertaking.  You are the hope and inspiration for all of us when spirits are low and our energy is flagging.

     My sincere apologies that this letter is so long in coming.  I must admit to not being the best at taking time for correspondence, especially when my total focus is on the daily efforts of such a monumental rescue.  At any rate, here's the news:

     To date, 725 PDs have been released, thanks to your help.  Two hundred more will be delivered to their new home on Wednesday, August 7, 2002.  We have put out a plea to Native Americans living on tribal lands for assistance in placing many more in the near future.  There are several state parks considering allocating some land for the prairie dogs... this is up in the air at this time, but we are working on it.

     I will try to get a photo journal started on this site ASAP.  We are waiting for photos from some of the release sites and newspapers, and will post when we get them.

     Sorry this is so brief, but I want to again thank everyone who has supported this mission. I know how difficult it is to decide who to support, who might be just blowing smoke, and what is in the best interests of the PDs.  Putting your money on the line has given hope to 980 PDs thus far.  Be assured we will not let anything stand in the way of saving every PD we can.

Until the last PD is poisoned...

Lynda Watson
