SUMMER 2014 – Protecting the Clear Lake Hitch

On August 6th, 2014 the California Fish & Game Commission vote unanimously to designate the Clear Lake Hitch (Lavinia exilicauda chi), an endemic minnow of cultural and ecological significance, as a threatened species in California.

Conservationists from the Center for Biological Diversity filed the initial petition. Volunteers with the Chi Council for the Clear Lake Hitch provided recent survey data. Tribal members from bands surrounding Clear Lake drove to San Diego and testified.

And my newest film was shown:

  1. Thank you for your film. I hope it prospers and reaches the people who can help take action. I am friends of the Winimum Wintu Tribe and the Coast Miwok Tribe aka the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria so please let me know if I may be of any help. I also know Clayton and Doug Duncan of the Clear Lake Pomo band but I’m sure that you already know them.
