Excerpt from A Year's Program for Bird Protection
Americans are known throughout the world as successful busi ness-men. Our practical knowledge of values has spread into every field of endeavor. And our wealth is everywhere apparent. Our de sire for wealth has had bad effect ... at times, since it has blindly sought immediate gain, forgetful of consequences. Thus have forests been carelessly felled without a thought of using any but the readily salable products, and with no consideration of replant ing or careful selection of trees. Wholesale destruction of life in many of our streams has come about as a direct result of careless ness in disposal of waste products from factories, mines, and such industrial plants.
Our wild birds and mammals during the past century received so little protection that almost before we were conscious of our neglect.
