A Daily Joy - Our Year in the Land of Enchantment

A year ago we left Florida saying, in our year end newsletter:

“We began the Guardians of the Everglades® multi-media project with great hopes of reaching and educating a broad range of individuals in the benefits of Everglades conservation. . .” But forces of destruction were overwhelming. and clear-eyed, we had to move on.

Over the past year news on climate change has shifted from threatened species or habitats to one of international concern for the ecosystem of the entire planet. Yet Nero continues to fiddle.

Our year in the Land of Enchantment has proven to be the right move. New Mexicans understand that we share the planet with all creatures, threatened or thriving, and it is a daily joy. Share some of our beauty.

We wish you and yours and all creatures here below beauty and peace.

Feliz Navidad y Prospero Año Nuevo.

CLIMATE CHANGE IS NOT A HOAX

As most of you know, I am a Senior Founding Fellow of the International League of Conservation Photographers. We just created 1Frame4Nature to share our dedication to conservation and to encourage everyone to participate.  Our letter states, in part,

“We are all connected. The water we drink, the air we breathe, and the food we eat unite us in caring for our world.

“The Fellows of the International League of Conservation Photographers are dedicated to furthering conservation and the health of nature through their photography.  They do so by sharing their pictures and stories of what they hold most dear - their connections to the land, water, wildlife, and all of nature for the nourishment of both our bodies and spirits.

“1Frame4Nature (1F4N) is an iLCP led campaign that aims to use our Fellows’ images and stories to encourage online audiences, the general public, to share their images and stories of their own personal connection to nature.”

Share your #1Frame4Nature images and stories here! www.1Frame4Nature.org and while you are on the site, check out my images about climate change and its potential effect on south Florida. Climate Change Is Real.
