The subject for Jerry Water’s talk is “Share Your Passion.” This presentation is intended to encourage others to use personal contacts, social media and other venues to share their love nature.
The talk centers on wildlife (especially birds) and habitat in Florida. Throughout, Jerry will encourage people to share their love of our natural wonders with others. Jerry says “if we educate and inspire others to learn about and love our wildlife and threatened habitats, it can lead to increased awareness and public calls for more responsible legislation. Many people love to write, draw, compose music, tell stories, make videos, and take pictures. All of these can be shared with others via social media and local events such as exhibitions and displays.”
