Wilderness Balloons - Pygmy Rabbit Edition
This is a special edition of my Wilderness Balloons series as it covers several balloons found outside of southern California. Specifically, this covers a series of balloons found in a remote area of Humboldt County, Nevada (near the Idaho border) while conducting Pygmy Rabbit surveys for the United States Bureau of Land Management.
About Wilderness Balloons
I see an unbelievable number of balloons in an unbelievable number of wild places during my forays. They are strung from brush and trees in remote wilderness and hanging from the legs of birds. Mylar balloons frequently cause wildfires when caught in power lines. Balloons are destructive trash and should never be released into the environment. For more information from the US Fish and Wildlife Service about this issue, read here (warning: graphic images of dead wildlife).
