Sorry for the lack of posts... I've been at a week-long meeting for work. Plus, Beth and I went to see Genesis last night in Philly. They rocked. The Society for the Conservation and Study of Caribbean Birds is running its 2007 raffle with a chance to win one of 7 fabulous prizes:
- Four beautiful original Cuban bird paintings
- Two pairs of Audubon Classic Equinox 8x42 binoculars (waterproof, fully-coated elements, phase-corrected roof prism optics, close focus 5 feet)
- National Geographic Complete Birds of North America (Hard Cover, Companion to the National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of North America)
This is a major fund raising effort of the Society to help Caribbean birds that are facing many serious threats for their survival. A huge new problem is the explosion of luxury resort developments throughout the Caribbean region, including the Bahamas and Bermuda by using critical habitat areas. Other serious threats for these endangered endemic birds are invasive species, pollution and, of course, global warming. Many coral islands around the world will be the first to "go under". I hope you will be willing to support this worthy cause. Raffle tickets are $5 each and the drawing will take place in Bermuda on Saturday, 6th October 2007. You don't need to be there to claim a prize. To purchase tickets, send me an email (pbelardo -at- yahoo.com) and I will send you the details for how you can easily buy tix. I bought 3 myself!
