WHAT CAN WE DO?
EarthShare helps people connect from the heart from which the motivation to share stems. We research ways we each can act and what we can do for the benefit of Wildlife and all Nature. Then we work to inspire and educate, especially young people, sparking ideas, encouraging initiatives and giving pointers with examples where needed. We use Nature Walks, Wildlife Encounters, Outdoor Adventures and other Real Life Experiences to open eyes, hone listening and awaken the spirit of responsibility, respect and sharing. Finally we do the very best in our own lives, because this is our passion and even though the problems are huge each of us can chip away to the best of our ability.
Buy products which will last. Think when buying what will happen to it when it breaks or is no longer needed.
Consider a life of greater simplicity.
De-clutter and stop accumulating.
Grow your own vegetables.
Live economically, saving energy
Create a wildlife-friendly garden.
MAKE WINDOWS VISIBLE TO BIRDS
Use stickers or hangings to make windows visible to birds.
Try not to park too close to the building as this can make the hazard less visible and harder for a fast flying bird calculate for.
Pay especial attention to any windows which have claimed casualties or lives.
DRIVE WITH VIGILANCE
Drive alert to the risk of wildlife, even more so at dusk and dawn.
Brake and slow down to avoid collision if it is safe to do so.
Holding a steady speed slow speed also can allow a bird or animal to gauge better how
to avoid you.
Notice if it is just one bird/animal or if there are more. Allow a whole group to cross the road if your slowing is not going to cause an accident.
