Why adopt this animal?

Pledge your eco-action

 

We will encourage wildlife diversity. For example, we will provide a variety of feeders for birds so that you can attract many different species to your area. For the same reason, we will hang an assortment of bird houses. Also, we will plant native trees and shrubs. We will not only be helping to preserve the plant species, but the plants will provide homes and food for local animals. Finally, we will plant for wildlife. We will choose plants that provide berries for birds, and plants that attract butterflies with their nectar. We will try to provide food sources for other types of insects as well.

Pledge your eco-action

 

I'd like to create 17 replicas of my 80W flag. For each of the 17 flags, instead of the 80W longitude on the upper right corner, I'd like to place the actual exact coordinates of the location where the panther was killed and the date of the killing.

 

I would like to partner with organizations/interested parties (including photographer Brian Call) to install the 17 flags along South Florida roadways where Florida Panthers have been killed in the past year.  This installation can serve to advocate for critical habitat designation.

 

The conspicuous orange flags can also serve to warn motorists that they travel through lands where the panther had the right of way long before Henry Ford was born.

Miami, FL

 

Which animal are you adopting?

 

Wood Stork, Mycteria americana

83 W

 

Why adopt this animal?

 

It is an amazing bird that needs to be protected. I am adopting this bird partly because of where I work and it is always exciting to see the wood storks come down our way in the winter. There is an amazing rookery on my way to work and to see the adults flying over the road with branches in their bills to build their nests is just amazing. And then I wait in anticipation to the time when the babies are ready to fledge and then they will line the levee on the other side of the canal sometimes 40 or more strong. I hope that one day they will be able to be taken off of the endangered species list.

 

Pledge your eco-action

 

I am zero-scaping my entire lawn at my home to save water. The wood storks will only nest and even sometimes abandon their nests if the water level is not just right. So I am going to continue to zero-scape to make sure that there is the always water for them.
