It is ridiculously important to take care of our environment, and growing up in Florida, the ocean is obviously one of my main concerns. We need to keep our coastlines protected so that our children's children ( and seaturtles, plant life, etc.) can enjoy the clean water and waves too! I was raised in Daytona Beach where driving is permitted and vacationing is popular. This resulted in trash in the sand and water and the destruction of seaturtle nests. Since then, I became involved in beach clean-ups and tried to spread an awareness of inhabitants of the beach. Check out these sites and do you part to protect the environment.
