If you want to know where you would have stood on slavery before the Civil War, don't look at where you stand on slavery today. Look at where you stand on animal rights. Paul Watson.
The following is a document archive for the native fish of the Colorado River, which have the highest rate of jeopardy toward extinction in the nation. Read article here.
Historically, the native fish fauna of the Colorado River Basin was dominated by the minnow (cyprinids) and sucker (catostomids) families. Of the 34 known native species to the Colorado River basin, 74% are found nowhere else in the world, or endemic.
