    Stand with Wolves Featuring 2014 Governor Candidate Dr. Robert Ornelas


    Stand With Wolves featuring 2014 California Gubernatorial Candidate Dr. Robert Ornelas was produced by Elite TV News and hosted by Krista Rocha from International Hip Hop group The S.O.G. Crew.


    U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service hosted a public hearing in Sacramento to collect information on the service’s proposal to de-list the gray wolf (Canis lupus) in the contiguous United States. The hearing was at the Marriott Courtyard Sacramento Cal Expo, Golden State Ballroom, 1782 Tribute Road, Sacramento, CA 95815.


    The service proposed removing the Gray Wolf from the endangered Species List.


    “It was an honor to be in Sacramento supporting wildlife advocacy. I am a wildlife friendly candidate for Governor of California. We have worked with Native American Indian communities throughout North America and have learned a lot from their culture and beliefs. The Native people consider these animals sacred the same way we consider the bible sacred. Tax payers are paying hundreds of millions of dollars to kill these animals. By saving the animals, tourism will grow and impact our economy. Tourism expenditures will increase while thousands of jobs will be generated,” stated Dr. Robert Ornelas


    The Service published a proposed rule on June 13, 2013, to delist the gray wolf. Hearings are part of the Service’s continuing efforts to provide an open and comprehensive public process for the two wolf rules and gave members of the public a forum by which to register their views.


    “Hunters, ranchers, poachers and trappers are wiping out these animals with our tax dollars. Asian and European meat markets are coming to the United States with big bucks and are destroying these sacred animals. We invited Dr. Robert Ornelas here to see what we are doing in relations to Native American, economic, moral and ethical causes,” said wildlife advocate Randy Massaro.

    National advertisements and Public Service Announcements

    Lobbying on the local, state and national levels

    The creation of original programming

    The formation of a digital television network, which will be initially launched online, but which will be eventually moved to cable or a satellite service.
