When mighty cattle graze through fields to eat their diet of tall grasses, the Cattle Egret, a stately white bird with long legs and graceful wings, feeds on the insects that emerge from the tousled grass.

The cattle are simply providing for themselves their daily needs, but as a result, they are also providing for a local bird. This is a great example of a commensalism symbiotic relationship; it benefits the needs of one without risk to the other.

Now, here’s the fun part. You can be in a symbiotic relationship with us, just like the cattle and egret, by shopping at Kroger and Amazon. These companies will donate directly to Lost River Cave when you designate us as your charity.  Best of all, it doesn’t cost you a penny. That’s what we call a mutually beneficial relationship!
