l have been a part of a few successful wildlife rescues and educate people on wildlife and environmental issues. We have helped in issues to save wetlands, woodlands etc.to save the precious life within. It is well worth the effort. We can all learn to live and work together. Education is the key. In 2011 I won an education award from Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority for the work and photography I do. Habitat is fast disappearing and with it, many species are also declining in numbers. So many species can actually tell us the health of our environment and alert us to problems we need to know about. They all need to be protected.

Great blue heron dancing Toronto area,Sept 7/10

On a recent visit with my friend Ann in Toronto area we had a wonderful photo op with this great blue heron. We were checking out a wetland/mud flat area and this heron flew right in front of us and started chasing a leaf in the water. It was like watching a heron doing ballet. Incredible moves. So graceful and free. What was disturbing to us in this area though, was the garbage that people had dumped there. Old tires,chairs,cans etc. In such a rich migration area with so many species of wildlife using it. Could these people not use their brains and properly dispose of their garbage. In what I do all I hear about are how the geese and gulls make such a mess. I am sorry. But human beings are the biggest polluter on earth. As seen in a couple of my shots,it makes me sick. Next time you go to say that these species makes such a mess. THINK ABOUT IT FIRST. I took these photos to educate people on the real world we live in.
