Posted | 0 comments

See my article, posted today in the Globe and Mail, on efforts to preserve the endangered Ridley Bronze turkey. Margaret Thomson of Wind Rush Farm on Salt Spring Island recently completed her third national census to see how many of the birds survived the Christmas dinner table. The results are not encouraging but she insists that the gnarly meat bird is worth keeping alive since it one of the few ways to get back to Eden if our overly-focused commercial livestock DNA strands start to break.
