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 for restoration.

Let’s Listen to our Starving Manatees, Dying Fish, and Disappearing Birds about their concerns for the Graves Brothers Annexation and Sebastian Land Use Amendment
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.
City Councils and County Commissioners! Let’s work to enhance our Environment for Humanity’s Survival! City Councils and County Commissioners!
First, thank you all very much for voting to put our $50M Bond issue on the ballot to preserve conservation lands in Indian River County that are rapidly disappearing.
Nature Is Amazing
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.
Is it possible to have sustainable, non-polluting, ecologically sound developments where people live in harmony with close neighbors, yet with privacy?
I have a vision that all homes will have at least one tree (and hopefully more) in their yards with only 10-20% in a turfgrass lawn.
Sebastian! Instead Of Hiring a Lawyer for Annexations, Please Hire an Environmental Consultant So We All Can Work Together to Protect our Environment.
With people pouring into our county, housing prices skyrocketing, developments covering our natural habitats, our water being polluted and wasted, and rising sea levels, I’m afraid for our future.
Do you know about TOXO, a Cat to Human Disease?
Let’s protect us and our wildlife by keeping our lands and water from becoming toxoplasma litter boxes.
Who was here first — Humans or Our Birds, Manatees, Fishes, Panthers, and Gopher Tortoises? If Government agencies protect nature, humans will be saved.
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.
Common Sense: Protect Land to Save Our Lagoon and Waters
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.
