Earth First! Fist, Volume Eight

Davis, John, et al., eds., Earth First! 8, no. 8 (22 September 1988). Republished by the Environment & Society Portal, Multimedia Library.

In this issue of Earth First!, Greg King gives an update on the Kalmiopsis campaign against logging, Trudy Frisk argues that wilderness is threatened by free trade, and Jasper Carlton presents several reasons to validate EF!’s new campaign to end rattlesnake roundups.

No environmental assessments are prepared to record the thousands of wild animals killed each year. Snakes are brought in from throughout Texas and surrounding states, thus the impact area is much greater than west-central Texas. No studies have been conducted to ascertain how serious is the disruption in predator/prey ratios resulting from such events.
