This week, we have several things to mention.  First, we'd like to take a moment to remember Shirley Walter, the founder of CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife) who recently passed away.  Starting with a personal effort in 1968 to a group of volunteers...

Big Arts

Manatees

Beach Turkey
