Sea Turtle Nesting and Sewage News


6th Annual Sea Turtle Day


March 1st marks the beginning of sea turtle nesting season in Palm Beach County. Come help us celebrate the return of these ancient seafarers to our beaches on Saturday, March 12th, at the Boca Raton Gumbo Limbo Nature Center for the 6th annual Sea Turtle Day. This is a great event with educational displays and fun for the whole family. Visit the Reef Rescue booth, we will have plush sealife mascots and fish masks for the kids and where you can learn more about coastal ecology and coral reef conservation.
Hot topics:
  • Invasive lionfish control.
  • Coral reef anchor damage.
  • And most disturbing of all; the move by the Florida legislature to derail the 2008 sewage ocean outfall  legislation. We told you last week that a bill was filed by State Senator Miguel Diaz de la Portilla of Miami to delay the implementation of the 2008 legislation and allow the continued dumping of sewage into Florida waters until 2030. Well it just got worse, on March 8, the bill was introduced to the FL Senate as a first reading. This bill is moving forward and only you can help stop this misguide piece of legislation.
