Hi! I’m Carrie DeJaco. My goal of my ecological consulting business, For the Birds and the Bees, is to spread the concept of “Reconciliation Ecology”, that is, to encourage people to do whatever they can to make the developed world in which we reside a bit more ecologically friendly. With the ever-growing human population and the ever-expanding development of land, it is important that we do what we can to encourage and enable wildlife to share that developed land with us.
I have spent decades studying ecology, the interactions of organisms with each other and their environment. We need to recognize that humans and the natural world are not two separate entities. Humans rely on the natural world for a great many ecosystem functions without which we would be in a very sorry (and extremely expensive!) state.
I hope my blog helps you understand the world around you a bit more. I welcome you to make comments and ask questions. If there are any relevant topics about which you would like to learn, let me know and I will try to write a blog on them. And, of course, send me a note if you would like to make an appointment for an ecological consultation for your property to learn more about what’s on your land.
