Local wildlife rescuers are in dire need of help this season, as red tide brings call after call to pick up sick and injured birds.
Red tide, fishing and busy waterways are taking their toll on our bird population. Blanche Boudreau, one of the island’s animal rescue volunteers, is swamped with calls right now and could really use some help.
If you are able to help transport birds to the Venice Wildlife Center (in rural Venice), call Blanche at 421-2805.
BY LIZA STROUT - In February of 1864, a young man by the name of John Hay was sent to the recently rebellious and still fractious state of Florida for two reasons: To take an oath of loyalty from former Confederate soldiers and to see how things were going on the ground for a report back to President Lincoln.
BY MARCY SHORTUSE - There’s quite a stink at the north end of the island, and this time we’re not talking ditches. It’s fish, lots of dead fish, and they have been coagulating around the Boca Grande Causeway.
While many would speculate the fish could be from a red tide bloom, there’s also another possible cause of their death – commercial fishing.
Fishing, Excel and happy dogs are all included in the island’s first week of social activity in the year 2013.
