Default Saving a dragonfly.

Hine’s Emerald Dragonfly is on the endangered invertebrate list which propells action to try and help this creature survive. First you figure out why it is endangered, then explore options for action to change whatever is causing the problem.
Not every problem can be remedied and not every solution is easy. But with minds turned together it is surprising how much can be done.

Why Save a Dragonfly?
Dragonflies play an important role in nature.
They catch and eat small flying insects, including mosquitoes, biting flies, and gnats.
In its immature stage (nymph), a dragonfly is an important food source for larger aquatic animals such as fish.
They serve as excellent water quality watchdogs, are part of our nation's natural heritage and add beauty to our world.

In 2012 during negotiations to purchase the adjacent
Sandpiper Restaurant property for the new building site, an
environmental investigation of the site revealed that a portion of
the kerosene used to fuel fires for fish boils did not burn off and
seeped into the ground. Fish boils have been an iconic Door
County meal and activity for over 100 years. Kerosene is used to
create a flashover for guest appeal. The tradition is a large tourist
attraction. On this particular site, the environmental investigation
determined that 25 years of fish boils had contaminated 800 tons
of soil.

In cooperation with local businesses,
The Ridges Sanctuary developed a
simple fire ring and drip line to place
under fish boils to prevent
contamination of the soil and
groundwater.
