Florida Wildlife Corridor

What lies beneath...👀#floridawildlifecorridor #explorethecorridor #Repost @jlmaqua629
・・・The air smelled like the spring. Like a temperate day before a blood moon, when prehistoric beasties spawn among the debris. Like the rain that saturates the aquifer and floods the cypress shoreline, elevating a turtles outlook. Like the earth that lays the foundation for the carpets of eelgrass, sustenance for the dassie's aquatic Floridian cousins. Emerging from this waterworld, this bouquet whirled through each saturated strand of hair, a pheromone only Mother Nature could create, an aura that stayed with me until the moon passed through the shadow of the earth. The air smelled like the spring. Now so did I.

・・・Good news for the resident population of Osprey in the Florida Keys! The Osprey is normally a migratory bird, but there is a small portion of the population that decided to make Florida their permanent home. About 90% of that population reside in the Florida Keys. About three decades ago a mass die-off of seagrass, resulting from a green-algae bloom, caused the population to plunge. The seagrass beds are where the Osprey like to hunt. No seagrass...no fish. No fish...no food. The species soon after was added to the Florida’s Species of Special Concern list. This Monday, after a yearlong review Florida has decided to remove the species from the list as they have found the population rising statewide. Just because they have been removed from the list doesn’t mean all is good to go now. Their land still remains vulnerable which means they are too. Algae blooms and restrictions to water flow through the Everglades impact these and all wading and coastal birds. #floridawildlife #keepfloridawild #wildlifeconservation

That brief, yet welcomed time of year, when Florida’s springs are warmer than the air temps...#LoveFL #explorethecorridor #Getoutside #Repost @brandyland80
・・・Reflections of yesterday.
I had the river to myself for little over an hour yesterday morning. It was surreal. The flooded lands looked different but felt familiar.
It was like reuniting with a past lover...a feeling of home mixed with anxiety of uncertainty. .
Exciting regardless ❤️

Congrats, @macstonephoto! Thanks for capturing what’s at stake here in Florida and sharing it in such a beautiful way. #Repost @macstonephoto
・・・Thrilled and honored to announce that I’ve been awarded the Philip Hyde Environmental Grant from @nanpapix. The grant will go towards my efforts to tell the stories found within the remaining Old Growth swamps left in the southeast. These ancient flooded forests remind us what the southern landscape used to look like and how it functioned before industrial logging removed the centuries-old trees.

Keep thisssss in mind. 🐍👇🏽#wildFL #Repost @genesispythons
・・・Let's talk about Cottonmouths. Also known as Water Moccasins, these venomous pit-vipers are one of the most feared and maligned animals in the United States. So many times I hear stories about these snakes chasing people. Just the other day, I was admiring one on the side of the road and an older gentleman pulled up next to me. When he found out I was looking at a "moccasin" he told me to be super careful because "it'll kill you, me, and all your family." Meanwhile, the snake simply sat there, calm and treating me with respect, as I was with it. Are Cottonmouths venomous and potentially dangerous to human beings? Yes. Should you be careful in areas that have venomous snakes? Yes. Should you carelessly try to pick one up? No. Use some common sense. But realize that these snakes want nothing to do with you. Or the guy driving by. Or your family. They just want to get back to living their lives in the swamp. (I realize this is preaching to the choir for many of you, but I hope it gets read by a few people who find it informative)

・・・I’ve been checking on this Bald Eagle nest in the northern #Everglades since early November and the female has finally laid her eggs. That’s about 6 weeks later than last year. I’ll post some photos when the chicks hatch.
