Coastal Wildlife Club Marine Cleanup

Coastal Wildlife Club, Inc. (CWC) organized an FWC-permitted crab trap and marine debris cleanup on March 14, partnering with divers from Suncoast Reefers, Sarasota Bay Watch, Sarasota Sea Grant, and Sarasota UF/IFAS Extension along with support from Sarasota & Charlotte Counties. Divers removed over 50 pounds of line and two stone crab traps from nearshore waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Other traps were too deeply embedded in the sand to be removed at this time. Derelict traps and derelict fishing gear are threats to all marine animals – an entanglement risk for sea turtles & manatees in the water, and potential obstructions for nesting sea turtles onshore. The team was happy to improve habitat for marine life and, in particular, for the sea turtles that will be returning to area nesting beaches very soon. Coastal Wildlife Club, Inc. (CWC) is an entirely volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to increasing public awareness about coastal areas and particularly the wildlife species which depend upon beach and dune habitats in southwest Florida. Their primary and most visible project is monitoring beaches for sea turtle activity in Charlotte and Sarasota counties on Manasota Key, and on a small section of Knight Island south of Stump Pass. To learn more about CBC, visit their website at www.coastalwildlifeclub.org or on Facebook.
