Earth Matters continues its coverage of the 2014 NM Legislature with host Allyson Siwik in Santa Fe once again to interview NM State Senator Howie Morales, Molly Brook of Conservation Voters of NM, Dan Lormer, lobbbyist for the Sierra Club and last but not least our local chapter of NM Wild Friends from Guadalupe Montessori School here in Silver City who traveled to the Round House to testify in support of Senator Morales’ memorial opposing trophy poaching.
