Marbled Godwit:Limosa fedoa

marbled_godwit_12

Marbled Godwits currently face pressure from habitat destruction in both their nesting grounds, the short grass prairies of the northern plains, and their wintering grounds, inter-tidal mudflats along the pacific coast. Prairies are being converted to crop land and mud flats being filled for development. It’s easy to forget birds sometimes need two intact ecosystems to thrive and protecting habitat is perhaps the single most important thing we can all do to protect the abundance and diversity of life on our planet. And who does not like both abundance and variety.

    It’s easy to underestimate how much of an impact our choices have on others (especially birds and animals and plants). Great reminder that we need to do what we can to keep wild lands wild!

        Sad but true. I keep hoping education will help us to change. So many people say they love animals, birds, etc. But they don’t seem to realize how many of their choices are hurting wildlife.
