Wildlife Services

Mostly we could see oil at low tide and in the sand (which I had tested, at 28 ppm). The beaches have become "squishy" in a jello-like manner, due to oil, etc. filtering into the sand, also leaving trails which are uncharacteristic of the beach bottom. We saw many dead fish, crabs, and other sea life, including ghost crabs which were so disoriented they could not defend themselves. Small seams of oil can be found digging in the sand. When there is a fish or other wildlife kill, these are officially denied as being related to the oil spill, just as the tar balls were. Having read quite a lot on the effects of exposure to chemicals, including VOC's and Corexit, the following ensued: "On July 23, after a couple of weeks of increased congestion, I woke up and could hardly breathe. I have a very mild asthma condition and I am over 60, but I have never had anything even close to this. Since I had no signs of viral or bacterial infection, my doctor thought it was allergies. I was coughing up tons of white mucus. I only have a dust allergy, so it has to be something outside.

Animal Vegetable Miracle Summary

Food. Like people, most animals must eat all year round. So it is important that a wildlife refuge provide food throughout the year. Some plants flower in early spring, others flower in summer, still others flower in the fall. All types should be part of your garden. This is also true of some trees. Trees such as mountain ash, hawthorn, and autumn olive bear fruit from early autumn until February or March. Thus they make food available during the cold winter months-the time of year when food is scarcest. You can supplement vegetation with birdseed, suet, bread, corn, raisins, table scraps-you name it. Almost any food found in your kitchen will be welcomed by some creature in your refuge. But remember that each animal has specific food needs.
