How You can help

These Species need help! The only food for the Everglades Snail Kite, the Apple Snail, is Disappearing. The Cape Sable race of the Seaside Sparrow is only found in the Big Cypress National Preserve. But You can help! Organize a Group of Friends or join an Organization to help keep these Birds from Becoming Extinct. Here are 3 ways You can help:

#1: If You live near or on a Lake, Don't mow the grass, Don't use chemicals, and keep the area clean and free of garbage.

#2: Make Your backyard a haven for Birds. Plant Flowers, put out Feeders with seed & other foods, Keep pets Indoors & don't use Reflecting glass.

#3: Write to County or State Officials & ask them to to stop draining water from lakes, and spraying harmful chemicals, practices that are killing birds.
