Dear Birds,

I know it’s tough right now. You’re breeding and overwintering habitats have diminished in sized and quality. Your migration routes are filled with roadblocks and hazards, like glass windows and wind turbines. You can thank humans for all of this with a well timed poop.

But…

That still won’t stop me – a human – from working my hardest to make your lives better. I will continue championing land preservation and the restoration of woodland, prairie and wetland habitats. I will not stop advocating for “bird friendly” legislation to make cities safer for your passage. I will monitor your populations and take hints from you when something is wrong and when things are going right.

You, individually, will probably not be around in 2050. But I am hopeful that your descendants will be. I am confident that, in their birdy-poop ways, your descendants will be there to acknowledge all the hard work, dedication and passion that I promise to put in over the next 28 years and beyond.

Keep your beaks up my feathered friends. We’ll get there together!

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?

Dear Future Self,

It was 2020, the year I realized that life is fragile—not just mine, but the entire planet—through immense consumption, pollution, greediness, ignorance, false bliss. This wasn’t the way I wanted to live my life, so I promise to actively make the change.

 

Dear Before The Flood team,

We can all be aware and sensitized to the problem, so that we are ready to embrace the solutions that will come our way. In doing so, we can all be part of the solution.

 

Dear Generations to Be,

If we could all slow down, look around and connect: with each other, the Earth, the sky, the plants and rocks and animals, then maybe we can all remember to treat everyone and everything with respect and live in love.
