A longtime conservationist, Art Alyesworth, a Montana insurance agent, had worked on a few wildlife habitat restoration proects. But in the mid 1970s he became alarmed when he learned that extensive logging in the state was pushing the bluebirds --which nest in the cavities of old trees -- toward extinction. So he got some scrap lumber and built some nest boxes for the birds; then he founded an organiztion called the Mountin Blubird Trails Group and recruited hundreds of volunteers to do the same thing. The orginization ave the boxes to anyone willing to put them up and keep an eye on them; it estimates that over the next 25 years it gave away more then 35,000 boxes. Did it work? Yes -- when Aylesworth started handing out the boxes in 1974 only a handful of the luebirds were thought to still exist - by 1998 the count had grown to more than 17,000.
Nasty Duck Tales. No human nudity, but there is plush duck nudity, so.. I don't know. I'm gonna wager NSFW. And if you ever watched Duck Tales as a child this may taint your childhood. Just saying. And possibly triggering. There's an abduction and some duck pornography. Just throwing it out there in case people aren't a fan.
