2014 Florida Volunteer Updates

As the North Atlantic right whales migrate to the South Georgia/Northern Florida coast each winter volunteers help watch for and capture critical details related to this endangered species. This information helps scientists track the fate of the species and acts as a first alert system to pilots in the shipping lanes to avoid accidental killings. This blog shares the findings, photos and other pertinent information gathered from the Palm Coast Sector Volunteer Team while helping to connect and communicate the many ways we can protect the right whales and sustain our wonderful ocean life.

Happy World Sea Turtle Day

Who knew sea turtles had their day but thanks to the Caribbean Conservation Corporation (CCC), a 501(c) (3) membership organization based in Gainesville, FL that has been helping to conserve sea turtles for more than 50 years, you can make it a reason to party today (if you needed one on a Wednesday). 

The CCC has wrapped themselves around this day by offering a free house party tool kit to make it easy to have a few friends over this evening and "talk turtles" over wine and cheese. Or...you can do what I did and simply donate $25 or more and adopt your very own sea turtle.

See below for links to pages on their site and I especially enjoyed looking at their satellite-tracked turtles - find out where LuLu is at this very moment!

I know our ocean hearts and thoughts are focused on the plight of the BP/Gulf Oil spill but we can still find a reason to party on a Wednesday and clink a glass or two with friends in honor of our sea turtles, right?  Enjoy!

Yours in the ocean life,
