Thanks to PBSO – Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office for sharing this video on "Operation Guardian", the full day of training, safety and security exercises, conducted by South Florida’s Regional Domestic Security Task Force, at the Port of Palm Beach in March.
Every year protected species of “Sea Turtles” return back to where they were born to hatch their young.
Sometimes this may be 20 years after they crawled into the dangerous Sea to try to survive.
Singer Island is on of the nesting places for these magnificent endangered sea animals.
The Environmental Protection Agency has labeled these Sea Turtles.(Greens, Leather-backs, and Loggerheads) as endangered species.
To touch, dig or poses eggs, or worse is a Federal Crime. Their nests when found (the beach is searched every day in our area and marked with yellow tape).
Please leave these areas alone.
I had the privilege to meet with one of the Florida Fish and Wildlife personnel to take this video.
I will do a follow-up when I can go to the “Turtle Rescue Center”, and have a one on one with my friend Sue Flemming, (FF&WL).
Till then leave these nests alone!
