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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

A Typical Florida Solution

A Florida Feral Hog or Wild Pig Picture credit: US Fish and Wildlife   As you know we have only been here in Florida for about ten years. To say that coming here to live was Culture Shock,  is an understatement. There is simply no way to excuse, explain or define some of the behavior here. […]

Water

A drop  of Water Picture credit: José Manuel Suarez   The absence from this obviously addictive pleasure, has left me with a great deal of time to ponder what the subject of the first posting here would be, after being cleared by my Doctor to resume a somewhat normal life. Before beginning,  I must take the time to say, […]

Withering Whales

A Long-finned pilot whale spyhopping Picture credit:  Barney Moss   An update to this story The news is worse yet today, even more Whales have been found dead and again their stomachs were empty, but the thing that is most disturbing is the fact that these whales normally  live in very deep waters and that they are probably coming […]

You Care About Us~

Noah’s Ark Animals Picture credit: WiNG   What day is it? It is  ” feel good ”  or  “ good news ”  Sunday of course. My final posting for this year is about a place that I have loved for more than 25 years, it is  the Everglades. If you have never been there and […]

Going Green

                                                   A Florida Snail Kite and Wood Stork                                                                       Picture Credits: FFWS & Steve Hillebrand FWS   May we all share a prayer on this  ” World Aids Day.”   Although this is meant to be a  “Good News”  Sunday story, it comes with an  itsy, bitsy,  but…… It was just announced that a long time, […]

Who Cares If It’s Endangered Species Day?

One of our Florida green treefrogs   So there you are, thinking, not another ” special day. ” I don’t even get a day off of work for it, so why should I care? But you should care, do you know why? In our lifetime, hundreds of species have already become extinct and they are going away at such an […]

Can This Kite Make A Comeback?

                   The Everglades Snail Kite I haven’t written about our Everglades Snail Kite for a fairly long time, because so much of the news about them hasn’t been very encouraging. These critically Endangered Kites were pushed out of the Everglades, their ancestral home, by the usual human suspects, fertilizer run off from US Sugar and other farmers in the area, who have […]

It’s About Changing The Way We Live

   Photo credit: USGS   Last week, we heard the news about how  Red Tide  is killing our Manatees, the story about this was posted earlier and now last night on our local news, we were sickened to hear of even more mass deaths on Florida’s Atlantic Coast in the Indian River Lagoon. It seems that the high numbers of […]

Red Tide Is Not A New Laundry Detergent

Photo credit: USGS Red Tide or Algae Bloom  is now out of control on Florida’s Gulf Coast in the Tampa Bay area. This may, according to Florida Wildlife officials, be the worst year ever for  Manatees.   Previously the highest number of deaths was at 151 in 1996 and the experts are projecting that it will be even […]
