Help animals by responding to these surveys

For years I’ve been concerned about the dangers of latex party balloons released into the environment, ultimately harming wildlife. Terrestrial and aquatic animals may mistake a deflated balloon for food or get tangled in the attached ribbon or string.

Fortunately, a study is underway to find out how dangerous are the balloons — and you can help. Visit the International Wildlife Rehabilitation Council which has a link to a survey for the study. At the site, you’ll also find other studies underway, such as one to make dumpsters safer so that animals don’t get trapped in them.

Spay or neuter your pet: It’s the humane thing to do.
