Dolphin Research Center Hosting a Bridge Cleanup
DRC "adopted" Tom's Harbor Bridge (MM 60.6, by Tom's Harbor Channel), and the public is invited to join a volunteer event to collect discarded trash, monofilament fishing line and other debris at the bridge. The cleanup is to begin at the bridge at MM 59 from 4:30 - 5:45 p.m. All participants should wear clothes, hats and shoes that can get wet or dirty and bring a bug repellent, sunscreen and a cutting tool. Discarded monofilament line and all kinds of marine debris pose a huge threat to marine life. Florida manatees, dolphins, turtles, birds and other animals frequently become entangled in or ingest marine debris and can suffer life-threatening injuries.
