Endangered Animals

 We, the Human Race, are arrogant in thinking that
because we do not understand the language of animals,
that what they are saying is not of consequence.
Indeed, the animals are speaking to us and
for their sake and ours, we must start listening.

This Blog is an endeavor of the heart.

For as long as I can remember, animals have been an important part of my life.

Here in Florida, they are everywhere and seeing the threats that they face daily, it was obvious that speaking out on their behalf, would be a personal way to try to make a difference.

The result was: www.gator-woman.com

Later, with Blogging as a viable source of idea exchange, came postings on first Google and now Word Press.

If you have never been here and enjoyed the unparalleled beauty, the splendiferous  array of wildlife, may I suggest that you come,

but you had  better make it soon, because strong forces in this state are eliminating them rapidly.

There are countless animals around the Globe, that are presently at extreme risk, or on the very brink of extinction.

Most often, Humans are the causal factor for their demise,  but  not always.

The Environment is constantly changing and usually not for the better.

For these affected animals, the world is closing in rapidly all around them and their habitats are shrinking faster than they can replicate.

Here in Florida, the Panther is our most Endangered animal, with barely 100 left in the entire state.

Globally, this situation is being repeated, with every Country, every Continent, having their own species hanging on by a thread.

What we do now, will decide if these animals make it or not.

Their lives are in our hands and we had better get it right.


The following are only a few of the many places for you to learn more and hopefully to better understand, just what is at stake for our most Endangered Global Wildlife:

  1. Thank you for speaking up for endangered animals. I am still painting endangered species onto bottle tops and have painted hundreds now, although as you know sadly, there are still many thousands more.

  2. I have so much respect for what you’re doing. Since I was little, I’ve been a wildlife enthusiast. I had no idea that the Panther population in Florida was dwindling so quickly. It’s so unfortunate. I’m finally done with degrees, etc. (at least for the time being), and I’ve been researching ways to get more involved. Thanks for being an inspiration!

    • Thank you for your very kind words.
      This Blog is dedicated to all of those with “no voices.”
      Like you, wild life and wild places have been a huge part of my life, since I was a little girl running through the hills of Brown County Indiana, on my Uncle’s farm~
      Hope you took a peak at the “Getting Involved Page”
      You may find places there that will possibly help you on your journey.

  3. Hi there! I really like your blog, and completely agree with you regarding the arrogance of the human race towards animals. And towards the nature on this wonderful planet as well…

  4. Thank`s for the visit. Animals have always been a love of my life. We have a lot of problems because people think more of money than habitat for animals that were there first.

  5. I’m a Floridian, born and raised, and we’ve actually been seeing a lot of fl panthers around lately, my uncle even got a couple pictures of one with two cubs! I don’t know if its good or bad that we’ve seen them, as we believe they are being pushed more into our neighborhood (full of farms) due to the construction in the surrounding areas rather than that the population is actually doing much better. :/
    But I do really like your blog!

  6. love you for sharing the same principles. Rhino poaching needs a serious call and canned lion hunting must be banned. Those lion hunters go bananas on armed robberies, but unlike the robbers they do not go up close, they hide behind a bush several 100s meters away, the cowards, and then shoot.

  7. I was at a meeting at the University of Florida in Davie last night with Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission on management plans for three large areas stretching from Palm Beach to Dade bordering on Big Cypress and the Everglades, and one species we were talking about was the panther. My first two posts on my blog are reprints of my Miami Herald articles on hiking and bicycling in Big Cypress.

  8. I didn’t get a chance to comment when I stopped by earlier, but I think you’ve created an amazing bit of cyber real-estate. Thank you for shedding some light on these issues.

  9. Oh, I just love what you’re doing, the compassion behind it all. I too agree with you that the human race is arrogant, and I will add, careless and greedy! Thank you for your labor of love. Will be checking out your how to get involved info. Thank you also for visiting my blog, and making it possible for me to discover yours! Have a blessed day 🙂

      • Yes, some of their stories are extremely sad.
        But, telling their stories gives their lives meaning, otherwise they died for nothing.
        I share them so that others will remember them and perhaps choose to change things for all animals.
        Thank you!

      • Totally agree, I really appreciate the work you are doing, most of this news just goes unnoticed and should be brought to light and attention. I try to do little that I can do in my community and it gives me immense satisfaction and happiness.
        Keep up the good work 🙂 and have a great day 🙂
