“Our physical health, our social happiness, and our economic well-being will be sustained only by all of us working in partnership as thoughtful, effective stewards of our natural resources.”

Ronald Reagan

“Nothing is more priceless and more worthy of preservation than the rich array of animal life with which our country has been blessed.”

Richard Nixon

“We must remember our duty to Nature before it is too late. That duty is constant. It is never completed…It will weigh on our shoulders for as long as we wish to dwell on a living and thriving planet, and hand it on to our children and theirs.”

Margaret Thatcher

“Conservation is a great moral issue, for it involves the patriotic duty of insuring the safety and continuance of the nation.”

Theodore Roosevelt
