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.

Canada geese family of 2012

Last year I missed the coming off the roof episode so this year I was determined to get it.And as I thought, momma goos flew down and coaxed them all to follow. Calling them constantly. One stayed up with Dad. He wouldn't leave. They had 6 babes but am only seeing 4. Parents would not leave the roof and one babe stayed behinf when mom finally came off. After much stressing out,we found the little one stuck in the downspout. Babe knew it was there as she kept huddling up to it and looking at Dad and talking to him. Peeping. Then the other babe would peep back. We got her out and she would not leave the roof. Dad and last babe went down when Gwen & I opened up the window to get to the bottom of this. We could here the wee one but not see it. He knew we were helping. Long story shot. It was stuck. Gwen ran out on the roof and tour the downspout off,there was this little puffball ,stuck. She pulled it out and it came running to me. I grabbed it. Tucked the little thing in my sweater and warmed it up and ran downstairs and outside were the family were waiting for the 6th babe. It didn;t want to go,it came back to me. Mom & Dad them waddled over to us and took it away to the others and off they went in the lake. Unfortunatley one wee one,the last hatched late last night died. It was so cold and it looked like it got out of the nest and couldn't get back. Babies kept nudging it and Dad kept nudging it. Poor wee thing. It was the worset day ever for hatching. So cold,hail sleet you name it. So cold and windy. So off they went with 5 young ones. And what an entrance they made.
