This is a google search for animals/birds caught on fidhing line.  Perhaps someone can look these over and see if there is some to consider for the poster " Mind Your Line"

http://www.google.com/search?q=animals+bird+caught+on+fishing+line&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en&client=safari

And from the first page of results, out of 77 pages.  :eceek

Wonder if this is a real problem??  :sigh

I see this as a world-wide plea.  For Hornby Eagles.  For Sidney Eagles.  For all birds everywhere.



Perhaps we could use one of Booni's pictures of the Hornby Eagles.  And David Hancock could use a picture of the Sidney Eagles, taken by ground crew.  We don't have to use the same poster, but we can certainly share the idea.  After all, it's not about us, it's about the birds.


Edit: this picture is an example only, taken from the internet. We won't be using this one. Emc

I sent IBRRC the picture of the duck with fishing hook (successfully removed) and another picture of a Great Blue Heron, who was with us twice.  And released twice.  



Got an email back in half an hour.  Both pictures have been forwarded to IBRRC's Marketing Director.   :ecsmile

Great ideas beans!  :biggrin3

Websites is a good idea, and of course ours.  :biggrin3

I'm thinking some recycled paper posters for stores that would sell fishing supplies and licenses, any other indoor place.

  And some permanent signs at Harbors, Lakes, Piers, other popular fishing spots. Eventually any shoreline....

Next step seems like to find a place that can print posters on recycled paper. What size for the paper posters do you all think would be good?

Get permission for pictures.

I was thinking

Fishing Line Kills Birds
Don't Leave Your Line Behind


But when Luv offered

Mind Your Line

I concluded Luv's line is the best, but the three go well together, with hers on top!

Beans, I love how the two phrases work together!  Your samples are crisp and to the point.  Nice work.  :thumbup:

Kristy, the poster images in post # 17 and # 20 are ready to go.

If you could print these images out and show the manager/harbor master at the Marina to get permission to post would be great! You might ask if paper posters in windows, etc are acceptable.  Also ask if a permanent sign on a stand outside , at their choice, would be acceptable. You would be posting the first one and setting a precedent!  :biggrin3

If the manager/harbor master says more permission is needed, note who should be approached next.We are going for it.

The same person may know who we need to talk to re: permission for the shoreline.

We as a group and as individuals could send letters/ emails to the officials.  :ecsmile
