Vanishing Faces


A tank near the bridge leading to Marco Island and Goodland is covered by a
mural, "Vanishing Faces," calling attention to threatened animals like
manatees, tortoises, bears, panthers and the like.

Today's post is linked to Monday Mural.

It's a wonderful mural Jack but horrific that so many species are endangered these days.

A nice way to make that tank pretty and remind us of the endangered animals around us at the same time.

What a great idea to make a tank look good! When I was a kid, we used to occasionally see a panther come out of the woods to drink from a pond where my grandparents lived just north of St. Augustine. That was obviously a long time ago!

A good message, and it's a much better use of the tank than to leave it blank.

Michelle said...

Quite a nice piece of artwork.

Kay said...

Breaks my heart. 8-<

I like William's comment .. much better than blank .. my understanding is that some progress has been made toward saving species head toward extinction .. certainly a worthwhile cause.
