I certainly didn’t go to Paris to see a herd of goats foraging in a park.

Nor did I visit Fort Myers Beach to be confronted with signs about over-development.

I didn’t fly to Chicago to hear the news on Ferguson. I wanted to discuss old times with my cousin in Chicago but we also talked about the Preservationists efforts to save a city park.

When I landed in Palm Beach, there was a post card on conservation efforts.

From Paris to Chicago. Conservation and human suffering never take a vacation.
