Will Steverson Stay Or Go?

Silver Springs, Nature’s Underwater Fairyland Picture credit: Florida State Memory Archives   The controversial, Scott nominated, head of the Florida DEP, Jon Steverson, is like a “bird on a wire” at the moment. He has previously failed to be confirmed for this appointment by the Governor and if he is rejected, or fails to be confirmed […]

It Is Over!

A beautiful Black Bear Cub. Will we ever see another one? Picture credit: Unknown   Score Scott and Company ONE, Florida Black Bears  Zero! I had to compose myself before writing this, it took some time. Yesterday in Tallahassee, Judge Reynolds, who I am reasonably sure was appointed by Scott, said that the FWCC had every right and indeed, every responsibility to order […]

Exquisite Everglades

The Everglades National Park Photo credit: USGS/SOFIA   One of the most revered and treasured Ecosystems in the entire state of Florida, perhaps even the United States, the Everglades National Park, has just handed down some tough restrictions for the first time in more than 30 years. This is a long, hard-fought, much overdue win for a […]

Changing Alaska

Denali, the Great One! Picture credit: Nic McPhee from Morris, MN, USA   President Obama will be in Alaska today for an Arctic Global Climate Summit. He is the first US President to visit the Arctic while still in office. His primary objective is likely to shore up support for climate change programs. But another more […]

Paynes Prairies’ Pain~

The Paynes Prairie Ecopassage Picture credit: Ebyabe   This week was our trip up to Gainesville for my latest Skin cancer check up. It was, as always, a great journey as it goes through the most beautiful part of Central Florida. My check up went well, no more new melanomas, only two minor things and I was sent off until end of November. […]

A Ridiculous Award!

Governor Scott in the “Environment” he knows so little about! Picture credit: Eye on Miami ?? (not really sure)   I rarely find much humor in things that happen for the benefit of Wildlife in Florida, but this news in my email a few days ago, did make me laugh, out loud. The Global public outcry and rage about the […]

Night Lights~

The night lights of the Empire State Building in New York City, the stunning ones are linked below! Picture credit: GK 12   When I saw this yesterday, it literally took my breath away and I knew that I would be sharing it with all of you as soon as we got home this morning~ Yes, […]

Armadillo Awareness

A Nine-banded armadillo in the  green swamp in Central Florida Picture credit: http://www.birdphotos.com   On our local ABC News this morning, came a story that sent shivers down my spine, once again. Unless you live in the Southwest or Florida, you may have never heard of, or seen an Armadillo. The images on TV this morning were […]

Marjory, Miccosukees and Memories

Photo credit: Florida State Archives   Our beloved Everglades are about to be put under siege and attack once again from greedy, selfish developers and oil mongers. After the myriad of deceitful,  destructive insults that have been inflicted on one of the […]

Patron of the Oceans

Lewis Pugh with Archbishop Desmond Tutu,  September 15, 2010 Picture credit: Publicist   On AMHQ this morning Sam Champion interviewed a true Hero, one who is not just another wildlife activist. He talked to Lewis Pugh, the renown swimmer, author, activist, public speaker, and former marine lawyer, from Plymouth, England, who has put his infamous speedos into water that […]

Gone is Forever

A Green Sea Turtle Hatchling Photo credit: Manuel Heinrich Emha   As someone who has in the past,  been  fond of deep-fried shrimp, as of today, it is off of my menu, forever! I try very hard to be a vegetarian, but alas, shrimp was a guilty weakness, but now, no more. In my mail this morning was […]

Microbeads Petition

This toothpaste has harmful and nasty microbeads in it   My Dear Readers, this will be short and sweet. A petition was just sent to me and not only did I sign and share it,  I also wrote about it a few months ago on one of my other Blogs:   What Do 7 UP, Micro […]

We Are All One America

Staff of President Clinton’s One America Initiative, the Initiative on Race Picture credit: Public Domain   Watching the returns for Florida last night was a mixed blessing. Most importantly to us, Amendment One passed with 75% of the voters in this state approving it. And thankfully, the elections are over and the dirty nasty commercials […]

Please Say Yes to Amendment One

The Everglades, an exquisite Florida Natural Area Photo credit: sfwmd.gov   On Election Day next Tuesday here in Florida,  although not everyone will be on board, or be all that terribly concerned, a very critical Amendment is on the Ballot and it is not about who will be our next Governor. It is about protecting the most perfect, precious commodities […]

Hope for a New Whale

A Bryde’s Whale Picture credit: Sophie Webb NOAA   Just found this awesome story this morning in my email that must be shared. Russell McLendon of Mother Nature Network has gathered and presented an extremely compelling work and you simply must read it in its entirety. Please see the link to it below. If the DNA checks out, […]

You’re On Your Own!

The Tiger Shark is a regular visitor to Florida Beaches. Picture credit: Albert Kok   This story has been on our local news for several days and it has Floridians divided,  once again. I truly did not want to write about this, but the story will not go away. Those who fish of course, are completely opposed […]

Winona LaDuke

Winona LaDuke   For those of you not familiar with her, Winona LaDuke is the Executive Director  of a group called  Honor the Earth. Last week they began a new campaign  called   “Love Water, Not Oil,”  that is vital, no critical,  to all Americans, not  just Native Americans. What Fracking and Oil pipelines have done and will continue […]

Murdered, why?

Our beloved Gopher Tortoise Harriet, on her way back to her tunnel after eating.   Yesterday our local news, as usual, found a heinous, outrageous story about an animal that had been tortured and killed. It had been murdered. The animal at the center of this media firestorm, was an Endangered Gopher Tortoise. As it was airing  yesterday,  I looked […]
