Huge Leatherback Visits Southwest Florida

There was an unexpected visit by an endangered, 500 to 600 lb Leatherback sea turtle, Monday at Delnor-Wiggins State Park, Naples.

The same turtle was spotted again today on Big Hickory Island off of Bonita Beach. It is being transported to Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota.

You just never know who's coming to visit. :-)

Update on the longline fishing problem.

That's good news. Kind of exciting! If you don't mind, I'd like to mention it and link to you on Think Green Thursday this week.
