Conservation Efforts

In 2020, Nathan came up with an idea to hold people accountable in regards to wildlife.  After every winter when companies put down salt, or there are oil spills, or when air craft dump fuel into the atmosphere, there are pollutants that come into contact with innocent wildlife all across this nation.  It is up to us to stop this tragic polluting of our rivers and streams, as well as the air that we breathe.

  1. Runoff from salt

  2. Runoff from hydrocarbons like oil and gas

  3. Jet-fuel dumps into the air

    1. Rain​

  4. Littering 

 

These particulate debris are flowing into our sewers and thus, flowing into rivers and streams.  Additionally, they are being obsorbed into our soil and quite possibly into the fruits and vegetables we grow in that soil.  According to WebMD, chemicals found in our food are having a negative impact on humans as well, specifically children and puberty.  Read here.

These harmful chemicals have been known to cause harm to wildlife as well.

Urban Area Runoff Pollutant Study 2020

By reducing our impact on the planet, we also reduce the negative impacts we unleash on ourselves.  The following video shows the beginnings of my report on an urban area and how pollutants runoff into waterways and have a negative impact on wildlife.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We all only have one Mother Earth.  We have to protect it in any way we can.  As environmentalist Wendall Berry says, "the Earth is what we all have in common!"  

 

I recycle almost everything.  I believe you can recycle everything, even food!  You just have to dig a little bit.  So, as such, I wanted to share a little bit about how I recycle and also how we can care for all of the planet.

In addition, the wild world is made up of all kinds of plants and animals.  We are called as humans to care for our planet in all its forms.  If we don't, we endanger our very existence as well!  Below are some other resources to help you learn more about how you can help get involved and save species all across the globe.

At Nathan Haston, we believe in, and have taken action to continue to bring about a better image for wildlife and nature.  As such, we have utilized our partnership with Drone Management Group to take aerial photography and videography of animals in their natural environment, so that people may fall in love with the beauty of the natural world.  As Steve Irwin once said, “If we can teach people about wildlife, they will be touched. Share my wildlife with me. Because humans want to save things that they love."
 

So, to conclude, I want to motivate you to take the next step and get involved in some way to saving wildlife.  Here is a resource to help you find out ways that you can GET INVOLVED!

If you want to be involved like Nathan, you can help make a difference by getting involved in the local zoo that Nathan grew up in, where he began as a visitor and grew into a zoo camp member to donator.  The Indianapolis Zoo's soul purpose is to promote and protect wildlife and to save species!  You can donate or visit the Indianapolis Zoo website for more information.
