Trumpeter Swans - We Borrow their Grace

Trumpeter Swans - We Borrow From their Grace

Once in awhile something comes into our office that causes us to pause in admiration. As biologists working to benefit swans and their habitats, we carry with us the deep emotional connection to Trumpeters that inspired us to work in their behalf, yet we often lack the artistic ability to express those connections to others. Savoera Pahladsingh’s beautiful 6 ½ minute video recently posted on YouTube captured the beauty and majesty of the swans in ways that words cannot express. Savoera’s video, set to the music of Enigma’s Return to Innocence, blends artistic and technological skills in grand proportion. She tackles the tough issue of lead toxicity head on and highlights the suffering it is causing, particularly among Trumpeter Swans in the Pacific Northwest, while reminding us of how these inspiring birds have enriched human existence. TTSS has been working for several years to reduce this lead poisoning threat. This has been an extremely difficult and complex problem and progress is being made.  But the suffering and death has not yet ended. We deeply appreciate this inspiring effort to focus public attention on the problem. What a reminder to all that we must find solutions for threats to Trumpeters – to preserve their wild beauty and grace — that make our world so precious. Thank you Savoera! Gary Ivy, our board member from Bend, Oregon, sent us the link (thanks Gary!) and we’d like to share it with all our readers. Find it Save the Trumpeter Swan at:   The related website is:

    I leave a response each time I like a post on a site or if I have something to valuable to contribute to the
    conversation. It’s caused by the sincerness communicated in the post I read. And on this post Trumpeter Swan Society Recognizes Artistry in YouTube Video | Trumpeter Swan Society Blog. I was excited enough to leave a thought 😛 I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s okay.

    Could it be simply me or do a few of these comments look like they are
    coming from brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are writing at
    other online sites, I would like to keep up with everything
    fresh you have to post. Could you list the
    complete urls of all your public sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
