come and see Fred and his friends and enemies!
The second announcement concerns the future of the sanctuary. The lawsuit settlement allows Paul to deed his property to an existing environmental organization, for use as a hummingbird sanctuary open to the public or otherwise. He is currently discussing this possibility with the Seatuck Environmental Association, an outstanding group focussed on wildlife preservation and public environmental education. Whether these discussions will actually lead to the preservation of the existing sanctuary, in part or in total, is unclear. However, those who would like to see the sanctuary continue in some (perhaps better) form could consider making a donation to Seatuck (at https://www.seatuck.org/index.php/support/donate-now). If you do choose to donate, please consider making your donation to Seatuck in honor of the Hummingbird (first name) Sanctuary (second name). Even if these discussions do not lead to the preservation of the sanctuary, you would be supporting a vibrant, Long-Island-based environmental organization, and your donation increases the likelihood of a successful outcome. More to follow!
