Doombill Sandpiper


Do you want these to stop existing? No. Photo by John O'Sullivan/RSPB. Image used without permission, but I think we're all on the same side on this one.

Just a quick note, basically passing on the word from Charlie from 10,000 birds. One of The World's Greatest Birds, the Spoonbill Sandpiper, is on track to become extinct in the next few years if habitat destruction in it's Asian wintering grounds is not immediately halted. For some reason Disney has become aware of this bird's plight and may contribute a cool million dollars to a conservation program for the sandpipers, but that depends on voting for the cause on their website. I urge you to go there and vote. Yes, you have to waste a minute creating a Disney account (how embarrassing), but considering the situation I think its worth sparing the time. Please pass this information along and do a good deed today.

Yours Truly,

Felonious Jive
