Linda Nixon, 2018 – Just prior to the start of the TMN 2022 Annual Meeting (Meeting) in Houston Texas, we decided to ask attendees, both those in person and those online, to write about their experiences so we could share them with BPTMN members who did not attend this event. We hope you will enjoy their musings and that what you read will inspire you to participate in a future Annual Meeting.
Linda Nixon, 2018 and Communications Director – WHY IS THIS HAPPENING? With the current heat/drought conditions, Egret parents are having to leave their nests for longer periods of time to search for food. With their extended absence the nestlings get restless, tend to bicker with siblings, and many are falling from their nests as a result. Egret parents DO NOT tend to fallen chicks, so the “grounded” babies only chance of survival is support at a rehabilitation care facility.
Linda Nixon, 2018 and Communications Director – As you probably already know, the Recovering America’s Wildlife Act would provide $1.3 billion per year to states, and $97.5 million to tribal nations, from existing revenues to fund wildlife conservation, habitat management and restoration, outdoor recreation, and education programs. Of this, Texas would be eligible for more than $50 million per year to implement the Texas Conservation Action Plan and help stabilize the at-risk species in our state.
