In line with my series of posts on the problems with Florida's ecosystem, I decided to post a short little happy blog this time.
In one of my previous posts that was actually NOT part of the series, I mentioned that since we're allowed to drive on the beaches in the Daytona Beach area, we have to be careful not to disturb the sea turtle nests. This is actually a big problem. You can read that post here: Driving on Daytona Beach part 2 (Beach Conservation).
Well now the Volusia/Flagler Turtle Patrol is helping to ensure the continuation of this endangered species. For only $35, you can adopt a sea turtle nest! I don't know about you, but I think that is such a cool idea!
Although many of you who are reading this post don't live in this area, I know that most of you care about these special creatures, and many other problematic, environmental issues. If you'd like to get involved, you can adopt a sea turtle nest. For your $35 you not only help to keep the sea turtle population growing, but actually get a bumper sticker, a T-shirt and some other goodies as well.
