Please be on the lookout…

Boaters Be on the Lookout- Sea Turtles may be basking (sunning themselves) at the water’s surface in the Florida Keys as water temperatures have dropped in recent weeks. This endangered Kemp’s Ridley sea turtle was spotted just south of Big Pine Key in Hawks Channel on Sunday. (These aren’t super common around here and we’d like to thank those who helped identify it!)

Tuesday Tidbit- Did you know that these sea turtles were named after Richard Kemp, a Key West resident who was an avid naturalist and fisherman?
