‘The Thatch Palm Restoration Project,’ said the mother of three in her caption.
‘Three Palms saved today so far! They are an endangered species.
‘It’s important to save the indigenous flora and fauna.’
The looker then said: ‘Everything’s connected, the Thatch Palm has played in important role in the Caribbean from roofing, arts &crafts, food source for birds, to holding shoreline together from the advancing sea.

Last week Christie was pictured in a bikini top as she walked along a beach in the Caribbean where she has been on vacation since the new year.
The Elle model was joined by her daughter Sailor as well as Sailor’s boyfriend.
The siren showed off abs as she had on a teal colored triangle bikini top.
The Manhattan native, who used to date John Mellencamp, added black shorts that showed off her toned legs.
A straw hat looked to keep the sun out of her eyes as she added a silver watch.

‘Tide pools, coral reefs, sea life ,coastal Flora facing extinction like the local Thatch Palms here , threatened by rising tides …all things we can help save now by rejoining the Paris Accord,’ said the stunner in her caption.
The Vogue cover girl added, ‘These things are all an integral part of a strong economy as they provide livelihoods from tourism to fishing. Everything’s connected.’
‘I hope a part of our healing as a Nation is healing our planet too. #heartshapedtidepool.’

This comes a week after Christie revealed she got a hip replacement to fix a nagging injury sustained during a helicopter crash back in 1994.
‘New year, new hip. Yes, that’s a band aid on my hip,’ Brinkley wrote in the post that began with a photo of the legendary supermodel on the side of a boat with a bandage on her hip.

Brinkley, 66, went on to reveal that the pain in her hip had been getting worse with each passing year.
Eventually the injury got bad enough that doctors highly recommended she undergo a hip replacement operation.
’12 years ago I was told it needed to be replaced but the surgery was daunting ! And I had things to do!’ the Michigan native told herself, which turned out to be her way of putting off the inevitable.

But then, like so many others in the past 10-plus months, the COVID-19 pandemic shook up Brinkley’s world and she decided to finally take the time to do ‘something about the pain that had progressively influenced my decisions.’
This past Thanksgiving the mother of three put those thoughts into action and underwent the surgery, which she said gave her enough time to dance in her kitchen on New Year’s Eve.
‘And today I put on my long fins and explored the coral reefs propelled by my new hip!’ she shared along with some photos of her ocean escapades while snorkeling.
It was at this point that Brinkley encouraged her 659,000 fans and followers to take charge with their own health and well-being.
‘I’m writing all this to say If you’ve been putting something off that could improve your well-being but hesitate out of some sort of fear, I suggest learning as much as you can about the process and the results and expectations. I found the best Doctor for my circumstances and voila!’

And in the end, the results of the surgery appear to be better than expected.
‘I can’t tell you how happy I am to have done this,’ she confessed before adding, ‘now I can focus on getting back in shape and rebuilding my strength. Never too old to get hip!’
The near tragedy helicopter crash happened while she was on a ski trip with five others in Telluride, Colorado.
Amazingly after five hours, they were all were rescued from 12,800 feet up a mountain by another helicopter, according to the Associated Press.
Brinkley gained worldwide fame with her appearances in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issues, beginning in the late 1970s.
Her meteoric rise in the modeling industry would end up leading to a long career that branded her one of the original supermodels.
