Say NO to Chinese Lanterns

It is New Year’s Eve and I am sure there are celebrations going on all over the world. Enjoy by all means but please remember that a little bit of fun in sending off burning lamps up in the sky could mean a death sentence for a bird or an animal. The picture above tells its own tale!

Once these lanterns are airborne you cannot control what they do, which direction they fly in or where they land! Would you leave an open fire burning in your house with no supervision? Then why send one out into the home of wildlife? Please THINK! There are hundreds of safe ways to welcome the new year.
