You can tell by how many comments a story has, by how much people are about this..

Sorry this world revolves around Money now and who has the best things. Everglades, Birds, Fish do not matter unless you can somehow make money from it..

Sad because without a healty earth, nobody lives.

I wouldn't jump to too many conclusions based upon one count of one species by an interested party with an agenda.

How much longer will this administration talk about doing something before it acts? There have been so many promises, but nothing delivered. Maybe it will seem urgent when we have no drinking water left.

You're right. Sadly, there are those out there that think if they die with the most toys then they win. Our abysmal stewardship of the earth is an atrocious legacy to leave to the children of the future.

I am afraid that this is happening everywhere. The one good thing is that a piece of rookery that I have been watching over for 23+ years has been cemented over and taken over by developers and builders. There is a little strip that is left. I have found that the great blues return to this thin little strip to roost and nest against all odds. They have defied the stupid humans that prefer their developements to our own demise. What a shame.

It is sad about the roseate spoonbill and the Everglades. My only hope is that a Democrat will get in office both locally and nationally and we can get environmental issues back in the forefront of discussions.

What is also sad is that most idiots in this area could care less about the Everglades or the spoonbill. This is very sad. It is the end of cultured, educated, and civilized life as we knew it.

We are destroying the very thing that sustains us...with each eco-system that we lose, each species we destroy...so too comes our own.

The influx of people along the coasts from lake okeechobee south is the problem.
I remember as a kid in South Florida when civilization prett much ended west of Pine Island road, and there were spoobill nesting pairs where Inverrary is now.
It's not just the collecting of thing but the collecting of more and more people in flood plain.
Remember the first dyke to keep back the everglades was Stat road seven (441). Now the center of population in Broward and Dade is serveral miles west of SR7.
Not only northern transplants buy massive immigration paving over what was masrh land (pembroke pines)

If you were only a little bit educated you would know that one species effects another and that one effects another and right on up to humans. The Florida Audubon society's agenda is to save what ever wild places we have left in Florida.

This is just another reason to keep boaters/fisherman away. They will blame the fisherman, when its the population growth that has killed the glades. Keep on building a-holes.

Why do you assume every environmental protection comes from Democrats? Claw Shaw funded the Everglades Restoration Project during tH Gingrich Congress as part of the Contract with America.
Just because the current President is a dummy and a republican don't think the two always go together.

All humans must abandon Florida immediately. Please insure the safety and security of the roseate spoonbill, and the snail darter and the hawaiian goose and the endangered white christian male.
These species must not be allowed to vanish from our ecosystem.
