I am very suspect of "rights groups" as to their intent. People support them and find themselves raising money for them ony to find that they don't really have a clear picture as to what happens to the money. Many groups latch on to emotional concepts which breeds sympathy and allegiance but in the end the opportunity to collect money and keep most of it under the "umbrella" of charitable organization comes to the surface. I suggest when you come upon these groups that you follow the money first in your research before you develop an opinion as to how "worthy" they are. The "environmental" area is filled with people attempting to make a fast buck off of an emotional issue...so willing they will use psuedo-science to prove their cause. WB
