Well said. Another example: the bad effects wind turbines have on bat and bird populations.

what are your thoughts on popularizing more niche issues that have a more immediate and tangible effect like restoring beavers for water retention and local biodiversity initiatives? These ideas are often implemented only in areas already reserved for wildlife and not many consider how much of a difference it would make if people would implement some conservation measures on their private land.

I don't really see these things as niche issues at this point, but as the most important things everyone should be doing (besides living much more simply in general.) I've pretty much lost hope in the mainstream climate movement and legislative solutions. Our leaders, so called, will not save us. Doug Tallamy's model of getting millions of small landowners to create biodiversity is the right idea. Changing agricultural practices is key. That's where the big battle will be.
