Close Palo Alto Airport to save the endangered Aedes aegypti

Original post made by Richard Clark, Duveneck/St. Francis, on Sep 18, 2016

The Aedes aegypti is one of Palo Alto's most beautiful creatures, and each year the presence of this airport inhibits their survival. Airplane propellors have struck and killed untold numbers of them. It's time the well-read citizens of Palo Alto took a stand to help a creature that can't help itself.

Please show your support for Aedes aegypti today.

I'm assuming this is a joke. Who cares about mosquitos?

This is terrible. How many more species will humans make extinct?!
