"A mericans complain, but the rest of the world is not like it is here. We have a system in the U.S. where we can dissent and be snippy and argue for better regulations and demand incorporation of science into decisions being made about huge swaths of public land. Elsewhere, people have little say."

Dr. Joel Berger, an American biologist who was instrumental in the protection of the "Path of the Pronghorn” migration route in Wyoming, and who is now working to protect the saiga, the Mongolian equivalent of the pronghorn.
