This is why I do it.

Look at these photos below. Just a few that I took last week... and there have been many others... of completely different creatures in the park where I work.
Yet I also pass at LEAST one road kill every day while driving in. Usually an armadillo or a raccoon... the other day it was a hawk. A friggin' HAWK! And don't forget the time we had the dead bobcat...
I also see where development is taking over. Corners that used to have trees are now empty... waiting for a house. Soon we will not be able to see the stars anymore...
Sometimes I wish I were smarter... that I had more influence... that there was some way to get people to see what they are doing.

Amazing photos.

All you can do is be a voice, even if your just a small voice in a really large room. If just one person listens, then you've succeeded, if in a small way.

Maybe a nice story, with some of those great photos, sent over the folioweekly would help. I know they post "readers" stories all the time, and you'd get the attention of alot of younger (20-30) adults.

Just an idea, from another small voice in a big room.

Thanks for posting the photos.

Did you take those, by chance, at the Tree Hill Nature Center??

I hear that's a pretty cool place to go....

Owls are absolutely magical looking ... they always remind me of "The Labrynth".

Don't kid yourself - you have a brilliant mind and can make your voice heard! Wonderful pics of one of my favorite critters.
