March 2015

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.
Students attempt to build sea-worthy vessels using only basic materials in this annual event honoring the art of boat building. Sponsored by the Marine Industries Association of South Florida, this year’s Plywood Regatta takes place April 11-12 at Dania Beach Pier.
During April’s Earth Month, Florida marine life enthusiasts can learn about sea creatures and ocean environments without even getting wet.

At Hollywood Marina on a recent Sunday afternoon, the can’t-be-beat South Florida winter was a whisper warmer than it usually is in mid-January — and wily motor boaters didn't let the opportunity pass by. Not just because of the weather. Not just because the seas were calm. But also because the price of gas is low, low, low.
