Yesterday , Toyota posted an online article about that (supporting the audubon). if you go to savehatteras .com, it has a link to it at the top of the page. basically, Toyota says that they support wildlife conservation, and they are not obstructing ORV sales. they said they laid out specific perimeters for the use of the $20 mil, and that ther Audubon could only use it for specific purposes, but the Audubon never pays attention to that. people have donated land to the Audubon in their willsto build animal conservatories and stuff on, and the Audubon has developed it with condos and the like and sold it. I mean, come on. if they support the Audubon in any way, they are supporting the Audubon's causes, like closing beaches and other places all over the country. condonig their actions in any way is still too much. I think that if they give support to Audubon in any way, they are, in a way, supporting the closing of Hatteras and other places like it. if they really want to support real wildlife conservation, they should donate to someone who really cares about wildlife. end of story.

Ask Toyota to help keep beaches open

Post  pointbre on April 9th 2008, 8:43 pm

Please review this toyota blog. It's already gotten the attention of Toyota's higher ups (see second link).

Toyota's response:

Please suggest that they donate money to the Outer Banks Preservation Society to help keep beach access open at NC Outer Banks.

I know people that work for Toyota hear in Japan. I will explain the issue to them. If the Autubon society cared at all about being Green then they would not be fighting tooth and nail to prevent wind power. Toyota supports wind power as well as Hybrid Cars. Japan is enviromentally conscious. But I doubt they know what the Autubon society actually does.

If you write letters to Toyota and they are not too complicated I will translate it into Japanese to make sure they hear it. Its a shame because they do make good trucks (even better cars). Its good to writ ethe local branch but lets send a copy to Japan as well. Hit them in the heart.

Let Toyota hear your voice. And let the Autubon nazis know that it was because of their actions on Hatteras that Toyota reversed their decision.

Toyota is anti public lands access

Mr. Kevin Higgins, Corporate Manager, Marketing/SUV
Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc.

Dear Mr. Higgins:

I am writing regarding Toyota’s recent announcement about the five-year alliance with the Audubon Society called “TogetherGreen.”

Many people purchase Toyota four wheel drive vehicles to access beaches and the back country for various reasons. These may include fishing, hunting, rock hounding, shell collecting, bird watching, camping, gold prospecting, trail riding, or simply exploring remote areas. I assume this is the market targeted for the Toyota FJ.

Sadly, all too often the Audubon Society is in the forefront of efforts to eliminate all vehicular access to our public lands nationwide. A present case in point is Audubon’s efforts to eliminate traditional beach vehicle access at what may be the premier surf fishing location in the world, Cape Hatteras National Seashore, North Carolina. As a life long surf fisherman this is an area of major concern to me. Some forty years ago my conservation thoughts led me to become a member of Audubon. After several years I began to see them become more and more radical in their views causing me to withdraw my support.

I have enclosed a letter by North Carolina State Senator Marc Basnight addressed to the entire North Carolina Congressional Delegation outlining the critical problem at Cape Hatteras. With Toyota funding, Audubon is attempting to ban Toyota and other vehicles from the beaches many thousands enjoy. I suggest you revise “TogetherGreen” to “TogetherBan’em.”

Several years ago, Ford donated $5 million each to Audubon and Earth Watch. It was reported the later decline in Ford sales was due, in part, to Ford’s support of these environmental extremists. I suggest you check out some of the many surf fishing website chat rooms. You will soon learn Toyota is rapidly becoming a very bad word. Be certain a Toyota product will never again rest in my garage unless there is a significant change in Toyota.

Yours truly for public lands access with conservation,

Salty Do
