Of all the above, the only endowment funds yielding an annual income are
those of the National Association of Audubon Societies and the Caroline
Phelps Stokes fund of $5,000 in the treasury of the Zoological Society.

A fund of $25,000 per year for five years has been guaranteed by the
makers of shot-guns, rifles and ammunition, to the American Game
Protective and Propagation Association. This is like a limited

In the civilized world there are citizens of many kinds; but all of them
can be placed in two groups: (1) those with a sense of duty toward
mankind, and who will do their duty as good citizens; and (2) those who
from the cradle to the grave meanly and sordidly study their own selfish
interests, who never do aught save in expectation of a quick return
benefit, and who recognize no such thing as duty toward mankind at

Men and women of the first class are honored in life, mourned when dead,
and gratefully remembered by posterity. They leave the world better than
they found it, and their lives have been successful.

Men and women of the second class are merely so many pieces of animated
furniture; and when they pass out the world cares no more than when old
chairs are thrown upon the scrap-heap.

There are many men so selfish, so ignorant and mean of soul that even
out of well-filled purses they would not give ten dollars to save the
whole bird fauna of North America from annihilation. To all persons of
that brand, it is useless to appeal. As soon as you find one, waste no
time upon him. Get out of his neighborhood as quickly as you can, and
look for help among real MEN.

The wild life of the world cannot be saved by a few persons, even though
they work their hearts out in the effort. The cause needs two million
more helpers; and they must be sought in Group No. 1. They are living,
somewhere; but the great trouble is to find them, _before it is too

There are times and causes in which the good citizen has no option but
to render service. The most important of such causes are: the relief of
suffering humanity, the conservation of the resources of nature, and the
prevention of vandalism. If the American Nation had refused aid to
stricken San Francisco, the callous hard-heartedness of it would have
shocked the world. If the German army of 1871 had destroyed the art
treasures and the libraries of Paris, it would have set the German
nation back ten centuries, into the ranks of the lowest barbarians.

And yet, in America, and in the regions now being scourged by the
feather trade, a wonderful FAUNA is being destroyed! It took _millions
of years_ to develop that marvelous array of wild life; and when gone
_it never can be replaced_! Yet the Army of Destruction is sweeping it
away as joyously as a hired laborer cuts down a field of corn.

That wild life _can_ be saved! If done, it must be done by the men and
women of Group No. 1. The means by which it can be saved are: _Money,
labor_ and _publicity. Every man of_ ordinary means and intelligence can
contribute either money or labor. The men on the firing line must not be
expected to furnish their own food and ammunition. The Workers MUST be
provided with the money that active campaign work imperatively demands!
Those who cannot conveniently or successfully labor should give money
to this cause; but at the same time, every good citizen should keep in
touch with his lawmaking representatives, and in times of need ask for
votes for whatever new laws are necessary.

With money enough to arouse the American people in certain ways, the
wild life of North America (north of Mexico) can be saved. _Money_ can
secure labor and publicity, and the People will do the rest. For this
campaign work I want, _and must have_, a permanent fund of $10,000 per
annum,--cash always ready for every emergency in field work. I greatly
need, _and must have, immediately_, an endowment Wild-Life Fund of at
least $100,000, and eventually $250,000. I can no longer "pass the hat"
each year. This is needed in addition to the several thousands of
dollars annually being expended by the Zoological Society in this work.
The Society is already doing its utmost in wild-life protection, just as
it is in several other fields of activity.

Outside of New York many wealthy men will say, "Let New York do it!"
That often is the way when national campaigning is to be done. In
_national_ wild-life protection work, New York is to-day bearing about
nine-tenths of the burden. It is my belief that in 1912 outside of New
York City less than $10,000 was raised and expended in wild-life
protection save by state and national appropriations. We know that in
the year mentioned New York expended $221,000 in this cause, all from
private sources.

In a very short time I shall call for the $100,000 that I now must have
as an endowment fund for nation-wide work, to be placed at 5-1/2 per
cent interest for the $5,500 annual income that it will yield. How much
of this will come from outside the State of New York? Some of it, I am
sure, will come from Massachusetts and Pennsylvania; but will any of it
come from Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago, St. Louis and San Francisco?

* * * * *


I have now said my say in behalf of wild life. Surely the path of duty
toward the remnant of wild life is plain enough. Will those who read
this book pass along my message that the hour for a revolution has
struck? Will the millions of men commanded by General Apathy now arouse,
before it is too late to act?

Will the true sportsmen rise up, and do their duty, bravely and

Will the people with wealth to give away do their duty toward wild life
and humanity, fairly and generously?

Will the zoologists awake, leave their tables in their stone palaces of
peace, and come out to the firing-line?

Will the lawmakers heed the handwriting on the wall, and make laws that
represent the full discharge of their duty toward wild life and

Will the editors beat the alarm-gong, early and late, in season and out
of season, until the people awake?

On the answers to these questions hang the fate of the wild creatures of
the world,--their preservation or their extermination.
