Birds, Wildlife & Environs

In recent years I've come to love the remaining & tragically diminishing environment supporting native wild life, especially so in Southern Florida. The beauty and variety of birds, animals, plants and sanctuaries existing there are extraordinary. My hope is that you will, as I have, fall in love what remains and join me in working against their continuing destruction and for their expansion and preservation.
