Care for fruit turkey?

Help a habitat with your aloha.

Habitat Destruction: Cause – Agriculture, mining, logging, trawling, urban sprawl.

Habitat Fragmentation: Cause – Roads, dams, restructured water sheds, removal of native vegetation, rural development, interruption of migration corridors.

Habitat Loss: Cause – Pollution, invasive species, reduced biodiversity, increased population, climate change, natural and man induced wildfire.

Habitat Solutions: Promote educational awareness, Protect intact areas, Preserve nature corridors.

Habitat Gifting: Water, fruit, nuts, berries, seeds, grains, hay, alfalfa. Scampering squirrels and colorful birds are fun to watch at backyard feeders. Nourishment is scarce the deep of winter and grateful friends will visit for a handful of your crumbs. Care for some anonymous giving? When you are out exploring along the frozen marsh, the wooded trail, the sage brush plain or in your city park, leave a little something and tie it with a string. A bale of hay, a cob of corn, a suet ball of seeds for furred and feathered friends that you will never see.

Habitat loss - wildfire. Care for some fruit turkey?

Create a Habitat: By providing food, water, cover and a place to raise their young you can create a habitat. A brush pile or stack of fallen trees can provide protection from predators. A stream, a pond, a lake or fountain nearby provides the needed water. Use indigenous plants and trees with seeds for food. Building a garden of beautiful flowers and shrubs will attract a diversity of wildlife and helps restore habitat in commercial and residential areas. Everyone needs a habitat even bugs and butterflys. Your gift of food or water will be appreciated and help sustain a habitat and possibly a species. Aloha.

  1. Since my husband and I bought a house last year that backs on a nice little greenbelt (a particular gift in Texas!), I’m hoping to be able, over time, to develop a great deal of wildlife-friendly habitat using native plants and some of my own little treats. I’m sitting right now watching an assorted flock of small birds much on the grain and seed I’ve tossed in the back for them and know I’ll want to do much more!

  2. I am pleased to present you with the Versatile Blogger Award. Details can be found at http://letscutthecrap.wordpress.com/. Congratulations
