Protect the Shoreline this Holiday

Fourth of July is a very intense time on the beach here on Anna Maria Island. Lots of people. Tons of equipment. And then there are the fireworks.

Historically, residents, tourists and visitors have set off many thousands of dollars of fireworks illegally along the shores of our island. Impressive displays to be sure, but dangerous to people, on-shore structures and wildlife.

Be careful. Be mindful. And be respectful.

Here is an interesting tidbit from the Florida Fish and Wildlife people. It’s called the Wrack Line, and is their July, 2015 newsletter.
