We, the Human Race, are arrogant in thinking that
because we do not understand the language of animals,
that what they are saying is not of consequence.
Indeed, the animals are speaking to us and
for their sake and ours, we must start listening. Keep Florida Wildlife Wild and Alive~

Wind Farms In Florida, The Good, The Bad And The Extinct!
As a former resident of California, Solar and Wind power
were always just a normal part of our everyday lives.
There was rarely ever any controversy connected to them, in fact most of us were proud to live in a state that was so
But here in Florida, it is a much different story because we still have lots and lots of at-risk Wildlife.
Huge Wind Turbines, called the Sugarland Wind Project, are currently being considered for an area of about 13,000 acres that Sugarland owns in South Florida, where they can and will potentially do a lot of harm, for maybe just a very small return in useable energy.
If you read the story below from the Miami Herald, as well as the comments, you will get a better understanding of why the biggest objectors to these Wind Turbines are not coming from the usual or expected places, they are coming from Environmental groups, like Audubon and the Sierra Club.
The Everglades,Lake Okeechobee and a nearby Wildlife Refuge are sensitive habitat areas that are home to a multitude of permanent native or resident birds, as well as a large number of visiting or snow-birds species.
Some of these locals, like the Snail Kite, are an Endangered Species and the idea of losing any more of them could simply be disastrous.
Now, who do suppose is in huge favor of installing these Wind Turbines?
That would be Big Sugar, or Sugarland, who is set to make a fortune off of this deal.
