One Response to FDA announces several approvals

  1. I call upon Russia to help save the endangered animal species of the world by acquiring various species that can mate in Russia’s vast, undeveloped areas. I believe that Russia may be our last hope to prevent losing these vital animals whose territories are quickly shrinking around the world due to overdevelopment. Elk rest on grassy lawns in Montana neighborhoods, Bobcats and wild canines prowl residential neighborhoods in Arizona looking for food; the list is endless. Mankind is the steward of these animals that are being exploited to extinction. To save these animals would be a contribution to our planet and our future of the highest order.
