Sadly, a few weeks ago on July 26th a brush fire swept through 62 acres of The Wetlands in the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve, causing untold devastation to the land and all the creatures that call it their home. For this reason, I felt especially driven to donate to the nature reserve this month. Please continue reading below for a small feature on the Bolsa Chica Wetlands located in Huntington Beach, California as well as how nature reservations such as this play a vital role for local wild life.

The importance of nature reserves lies heavily in their protection of different varieties of flora and fauna unique to the regions they are located in. Without reserves such as this, many plants and animals would be lost amidst urbanization.
Not only are reserves beneficial for wildlife, but also for those who appreciate taking a chance to respectfully observe these special ecosystems in action. This specific location boasts an extensive list of creatures that reside within the reserve; such as an array of migratory birds, mammals, marine life and reptiles! You can view a complete list here.
It is my honor to donate to The Wetlands with the hope that it can somehow contribute to the restoration of acreage destroyed by brush fires. A special thank you to all firefighters and emergency personnel who actively fought and prevented the spread of said fires. Not to mention all those currently fighting against the many wildfires sweeping through the United States, undoubtedly saving the lives of countless people and animals through their heroism.
