Exit Strategies

What a world we live in. Fish out of water…and the water heating up.
‘Just read The Economist’s article (behind pay wall) on future threats to business, with cyber security coming out tops…
Also about exit strategies. Both then, in a way, about getting rid of ‘unwanted intruders’. We are all fish. Will evolution ‘save’ us this time? Walls and wails. And Fail Whales.

Alligator Alley

Blue skies! Mangroves! Lunch al fresco!

Highway 75 through the Everglades is very straight. It is also comprehensively fenced. The new fence looks to be about six feet tall, topped with barbed wire and sun cell-powered cameras. It looks menacing – it is to protect the Florida panther from becoming roadkill; the alligators and other wildlife also benefit, as there are culverts every so often that allow animals to cross under.

The trees in the wetlands look stressed, with ghostly limbs. In the approaching dusk, the black cormorants starting to roost for the night, the atmosphere is otherworldly. A swarm of sparrows rises and settles. The traffic arrows ahead in both directions, past the birds, the sawgrass, the canals.

H/T:
FDOT will fence Alligator Alley stretch deadly to panthers.
