Learning to sail on a lake is how roughly 140 kids will spend their summer vacation in a camp offered by the Gulfstream Sailing Club in Hollywood.  
The Cape Romano shoals, a Florida gulf coast seabird mecca, are on the brink of becoming a Critical Wildlife Area — further formal recognition of their natural history as no place for humans with more money than birds, but not as much sense.  
Last year's Marine Industry Day drew 2,000 people to the banks of the New River. This year's event takes place Saturday, June 20.
We South Florida residents are surrounded by water. Aside from the ocean, our backyards include canals, lakes and the scenic Intracoastal. Even so, the average local probably doesn’t give much thought to the expansiveness of our marine industry and its substantial economic impact to the tune of $11.5 billion annually.
Ten women from Miami to Boca Raton fish off the back of the starboard side of Catch My Drift party boat April 19 a few miles from Fort Lauderdale beach.
Ladies, Let’s Go Fishing, a national organization for women who love boating and catching food of the finned kind, gives new meaning to the old adage, “there are plenty of fish in the sea.” For them, reeling in a catch is about hooking bait, casting line and spending hours on the water with other women.
One of the most interesting scientific reports of immediate use to offshore fishing-doers tells us that baby sea turtles don’t just drift around at the whim and mercy of ocean currents. Instead, they appear to know where they want to go, and they swim to it.
Last year was a bonanza for sea turtles. There were 86,870 loggerhead, 5,895 green turtle and 1,604 leatherback nests in 27 Florida counties.
Once again it’s sea turtle nesting season, when you can see turtles at night on many a Florida beach. For nature lovers, it is a thrill to watch a big green, leatherback or loggerhead waddle ashore and upland, dig a nest and lay her eggs in the sand, then cover the stash and waddle back to sea.
