Letter to the Editor: Why is a fertilized condor egg treated differently than a fertilized human egg?

Conservation is done for many animals in the animal kingdom. Millions of dollars are spent each year to preserve or save one endangered species or another.

Several years ago one of those was the condor.

Pictures of helicopters hovering over nests as angry condors parents watched as conservationists raided the nest, took the fertilized egg, placed it in a padded box, and flew away with it.

Letter to the Editor: The 2023 farm bill: New Mexicans should ensure their voices are heard

E-mail Print PDF
Dear Editor,

As you drive around your local community, take a minute to notice how the food and agriculture sector is everywhere.

All New Mexico agriculture and the consumers who enjoy our state’s products are impacted by the 2023 Farm Bill being discussed by Congress, which is renewed every five years. The renewal provides an opportunity for producers and consumers to make decisions about commodities to grow, conservation practices to invest in and requirements to establish the nutrition...
