Through the grapevine I learned about an organization that sounds like they’re doing wonderful things.
It’s the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, which surrounds the entire Florida Keys. If you’re aware of how fragile the Keys are and how much impact humans have on them, then you’ll be pleased to know that these folks are doing what needs to be done to protect the coral, seagrass, and marine life found here.
It’s an organization I plan on learning more about, and if you’d like to do the same, there are two sites to see. One is their website at www.floridakeys.noaa.gov and the other is their facebook page (which has some astounding images) at www.facebook.com/floridakeysnoaa.gov.
The islands of the Florida Keys are an American treasure. It’s great to know that people are looking out for them.
