The Wacodahatchee Wetlands

Had a fun morning at The Wacodahatchee Wetlands

The name, Wakodahatchee, has an interesting history. It is derived from the Seminole Indian Language and translates as “created waters.” The created waters at Wakodahatchee Wetlands are an example of people giving something back to nature. Fifty acres of unused utilities land have been transformed into a wetlands ecosystem.

 

 
“The assumption that animals are without rights, and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance, is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality.”
― Arthur Schopenhauer, The Basis of Morality

  1. Great birding photos, and I especially like the quote you have used about universal compassion to all the natural world. So true, and it reminded me of some of Aldo Leopolds words of wisdom & inclusive mindedness. Thanks.
