Mini-lobster harvesters flock to the Florida Keys to take part in a two-day hunt for the spiny sea creatures, giving a welcomed boost to the local tourism industry. For some, the annual event has become a family tradition.
The Florida Wildlife Commission is taking steps to educate urban communities on coyote encroachment. As the canines become more familiar with a city environment, small pets and livestock are at greater risk.
Now that the harvesting season is over, researchers are starting underwater studies to determine the state of scallop populations at 10 sites along the west coast of Florida.
Floodwaters have caused the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to activate all five idle-speed, no-wake zones on the Suwannee and Santa Fe Rivers. The FWC wants boaters to stay off of the Suwannee-Santa Fe River system if they can, but Parker said she hopes that boaters who continue to use it proceed with caution.
