    • Thanks ALOT Jacqueline, we are obviously running out of time with Tar Ball showing up in Vero, Jupiter and Key West (also oil-killed shrimp in KW)
      This Oil storm is terrible. We appreciate you donating your time with our effort.
      We have contacted Surfrider, Ocean Conservancy, Keep Palm Beach County Beautiful and Perry Institute for Marine Science. I hope that they all send us some participants and undertand the urgency for ACTION.

      • sorry, I forgot that Loggerhead Marine Life Center also has our back with this Palm Beach County volunteer oil spill effort.
        Thanks Loggerhead MLC>
