Until You Walk The Path, You Won’t Know Where it Goes will be chatting wildlife advocates Peter and Sheila Souza on March 20, 2014 at 1 pm eastern. We will be chatting about how they have used political activism, including civil disobedience, to protect our nation's wildlife and environment.
Peter and Sheila Souza began fighting for wildlife and the environment in approximately 1975. Peter and his group brought about the first land swap between National Park Service Land and Town Land to conserve Wetland habitat with many rare and endangered species. They stopped a road widening project within national park land that would have destroyed hundreds of acres of prime wildlife habitat and also would have destroyed the historical significance of the road. This gained them national media attention, including on CNN. Additionally, they prevented a waste facility plant from being built on land that would have impacted over 40 acres of the largest quaking bog on a sand barrier in the world, a wetland full of endangered species. Today that land is under land conservation trust. They were able to stop a drastic poisoning project being led by USFWS on a national wildlife refuge in Chatham Massachusetts that targeting all seagulls, terns, black crowned night herons, coyotes raccoons even skunks, It was stopped it with peaceful civil disobedience. This got national media attention, including on CNN. They forced the Provincetown to create the first Wetland Management Protection Plan in the State of Massachusetts, as well as to clean up and create filters for all storm drains to protect the harbor and Oceans as well as the Largest Quaking bog on a sand barrier in the world. They have taken children on Wildlife tours and have brought wildlife into the classrooms to educate children on the value of all life and wildlife. T
Alethea Eason’s newest book, Heron’s Path, has the grace of the river Talum that flows through its pages. Step into the world of Katy and her delicate sister Celeste where native ways are threatened by “civilization,” and the Old Ones haunt the forest with their longing to return to their true home. Will Celeste finally understand her wanderings and visions? Will Katy and aged Olena keep her from the clutches of the evil wei-ni-la? Follow them “north to the true wilderness, dark with ancient trees, where the Nanchuti struggle to keep their sacred songs from vanishing.” Enter into a magical world and be swept into adventure as the two sisters travel the Heron’s Path.
Meanwhile, the Great Blue Heron, stood idly by, oblivious to the Mallard's lovers quarrel, concerned only with its next, unsuspecting meal just below the water's surface.
