Previous Hoots have sounded the alarm that we need to support improving our Indian River Lagoon (IRL), St. Sebastian River, and our manatees, fishes, and birds. Finally, there is some recent positive efforts by Gov. DeSantis who, on January 10, 2023, issued an Executive Order Number 23-06 recommitting to make our Lagoon and Everglades a priority…
Unfortunately, our St. Sebastian River, Indian River Lagoon, our forests and wetlands, our starving manatees, and dying fishes, and disappearing birds can’t speak or are represented at the Sebastian City Council meetings where they discuss the Graves Bros. 2,000-acre annexation and Land Use Amendment.
Nature provides us with water to drink, air to breathe, and food to eat, and many plants and animals, which we need to survive. Our Earth, sun, moon, and stars, just where they are, all related, are a miracle of nature.
At this critical moment, governments aren’t protecting us and our birds, manatees, fishes, panthers, and gopher tortoises and other wildlife. We are heading for disaster imperiling biodiversity everywhere.
To save our Earth including its people, rivers, Lagoon, fishes, manatees, and birds, we must recognize that humankind is not separate from nature. We are all part of the natural world and depend on it for our very existence.
