A National Wildlife Refuge: NOT!

by Andrea O'Connell

I recently took part in a protest involving the decision to allow – for the first time ever – hunting in a National Wildlife Refuge, in Loxahatchee, west of Palm Beach County, Florida.

There’s something very wrong with a culture that says it protects animals but allows them to be slaughtered – poached – on the very same sacrosanct part of the earth dedicated to protect them.

So, are you wondering where the heck I’ve been?   I’m still here and thriving but not writing as much as I used to.

I’m following another dream of mine:  Photography.  Been working really hard at it, too. 

I hope you’ll check out my work here:

And…. I will be writing more, in the near future!

The United States Fish & Wildlife Service, along with the State of Florida, is allowing, for the first time ever, sport hunting of alligators.  The Wildlife Service “awarded” eleven licenses to alligator sport hunters, allowing each hunter to kill two alligators each.  

The hunt kicked off last night, August 15th, 2014, and runs until the end of October, 2014
