Brooklyn Community Foundation Do-Gooder finalist Anne-Katrin Titze moved from Los Angeles to Brooklyn and quickly fell in love with Prospect Park. The Do=Gooder is a public speaker, literature professor at Hunter College, and wildlife rehabilitator.
Titze visits Prospect Park daily and has been involved in rescuing injured animals, taking care of the flora and fauna, and protecting the wildlife from overzealous FBI and city officials.
Titze was at the heart of exposing the city employees and federal agents gassing of mass numbers of birds in Prospect Park this past summer. The goose gas chambers continue to be a public relations problem for the city according to The Brooklyn Paper.
“It’s eerie to see a whole population gone. There’s not one goose on this lake. It looks as though they’ve been Photoshopped out,” Titze told the New York Times this summer during the controversy.
Titze can often be seen around Prospect Park doing tending to vegetation or picking up litter along the shoreline.
Kudos to all the Do-Gooder finalists for helping to make Brooklyn one of the most righteous cities in America.
