"Cats kill a staggering number of birds in the U.S. every year—estimated to be in the billions—but one feline’s affinity for hunting them has inadvertently led to the salvation of hundreds of thousands of other feathered prey."

Nancy Brennan invented a collar that alerts birds to a cat's presence.  

"Cats donning the colorful Birds Be Safe collars were, in fact, killing 19 times fewer birds than those who did not."

"It’s a police officer’s job to protect and serve – but Kevin Briggs never thought that his job would lead him to save over 200 people from committing suicide.

Briggs has been dubbed the “Guardian of the Golden Gate Bridge” because of his awe-inspiring history of talking people down from the edge of the historic landmark....

“It takes a lot of courage to be over that rail,” Briggs told CBC. “It takes a lot of courage. But it also takes a lot of courage to come back and face the reality that is with them right now. But there is a brighter side to this, and it can happen, and it might take a long time and a lot of work. But life is beautiful and, you know, it is worth living.”  Read more here: https://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/guardian-officer-has-saved-over-200-people-from-jumping-off-the-golden-gate-bridge/

Article about a Syrian Refugee given a new life in Canada from Talent Beyond Boundaries, a Washington-based NGO who match skilled refugees with employers who have work shortages in the west.  I would love to hear more stories like this about people being given a chance.  I imagine there are many many skilled educated refugees who would be a huge asset to any country.

Slovakia just elected Zuzana Caputova, a decidedly progressive former environmental activist, as its president. She will be the first female head of state/government in Central Europe when she is inaugurated in June. Caputova's win is especially heartening since Slovakia and its neighbors have been flirting with far-right nationalists for the past several years. Read more here.

Regarding the bird-saving cat collar that Deborah wrote about above, I heard about it a few years ago and bought one to put on my neighbor's cat.  The cat was making it impossible for us to feed the birds and enjoy watching them in our yard.  The bird feeders were drawing the birds to our yard where the cat would grab them, especially the chickadees who hang out on the ground.

Rooftop Gardens.  A really good idea.

I started reading this story with trepidation, but it has a happy ending, and is worth a read.  It's by the owner of that little Virginia restaurant that asked Sarah Sanders to leave last year.  I had heard they had to close after the incident due to the tidal wave of negative blow back.  But the story didn't end there. 🙂
