Really just using this as an excuse to make a seabird-centric collage of life on Project Puffin's Seal Island..visit my blog for stories about my work with birds!

Click the screenshot below featuring my latest updated on my bird blog (www.feathersawry.wordpress.com) which is filled with stories about my work with, observations of and love for birds that persists no matter where I am. Trying to keep my politics separate but I'm not guarenteeing anything, seeing as how he's hitting below the belt and it's the environments that not just the birds, but we depend upon so desperately. If we ruin that, we're done. So to get on a happier thread for a break from all this, check out feathers awry for pictures of fuzzy seabird chicks!
First there was the inauguration, which nobody watched, followed closely on its heels by the Women's March, which bore many hints of our concern with not just how we're treating women but also of how we’re treating Mother Earth.
It was an inspiring time and, I think, showed to all of us how much we are of the same mind. If we can bring that with the same tsunami wave that the pink hats did, the Science March could really show ourselves that we're all together in this and we have the same concern for our planet, because, we gotta save the earth if we want to save ourselves. And we can start by joining forces, realizing that we're in this together. And here's a pure, strong example that we can do just that:
And we're doing this not just for ourselves, but for our offspring and their offspring and so on, so they can continue to have the privilege that we've had of carrying on the act of existing in the name of human. Because we don't want to have to leave them to deal with long term effects of mass drought (will we ever make up for all these years of it?), warming temperatures throwing off ecosystems that we depend upon, rising sea levels throwing off our summer plans..and homes..and sea temperatures.
So now it's our turn again, let's show our support and march. Wherever you are there will be a march near you. We all know who reads the "fake" news, so let's send him some more to watch! I'm irate over here, learning every day of what we are losing thanks to the easy sweep of his pen. Protections that will impact wildlife and the environment in the short term and us in the forever after term. Maybe we won't suffer our consequences of our actions, generations to come will until long after we're gone.
