Our goal is to save geese

Perspective: Being a life-long resident of Brooklyn and Windsor Terrace, I want nothing more for the park that I have called my backyard for my entire life to be graced with the presence of all beings that deserve the right to reside there in peace. I live in the direct flight path of the Canada geese as they make their way from Prospect Park to Greenwood Cemetery and continue to be inspired by their flights daily. I want these birds to live and raise their offspring here forever. I want people to know just how incredible they are and if they took the time to understand them and learn about them they would see there is much to learn from them. I want them to live in peace and grace the skies over my house forever. Comments (7)
