When going out for a day of fishing don't let your fishing to continue to hang over the boat when you are finished fishing. Need a new line, throw the old line in a garbage bag that can be brought along when fishing. Seen too many loons dead because caught in fish line that someone was not responsible how to get rid of snakes enough to dispose of properly. Plastic beer/soda wrappers that are thrown in the water are also a deadly menus. Only catch what you can eat for that day. Catch and release is also another option. When it's time to go home don't forget to wash that boat. You can wash your car, you can wash your boat too. Just a little car and consideration goes a long way.
If you live on a lake, you don't need to have a manicured lawn down to the lake. We need to do our part regarding our eco system. Leave some tall grasses near the water so the frogs have somewhere to go. We are loosing our frogs, because they have no where to go. This is part of their life cycle. If disturbed, no more frogs.
Hay, all those who think running over turtles when driving down the back roads, or scenic roads is how to get rid of snakes fun, well you're wrong. When it comes to your kids who want to see what a turtle looks like, won't get that chance, because you ran another turtle over. Someones joy is another turtle gone. Along with other wild life that could have gotten across the road only if given the chance goes right along with a turtle.
These are only some of the small, but significant things we can all do to help our wild life.
