Five Minutes With Barbara Birdsey

Acclaimed for her work across the country and around the world supporting the conservation of wildlife habitat and the protection of domestic and endangered animals, Barbara Birdsey is the newest president of Treasured Lands.

The philanthropist and animal advocate said she intends to expand the land trust’s geographical reach for conserving property beyond the borders of Martin County—focusing particularly on parcels that play key roles in helping restore and clean area waterways.

“The terrible treatment of our waterways really galvanized the public demand for sustained solutions to this environmentally and economically crippling problem,” said Barbara. “We believe targeted land conservation—for flow-way restoration, watershed protection and wetland connectivity—plays a vital step toward preventing pollution and environmental degradation over the short- and long-term.”
