I hope the oysters in Apalachicola Bay don't suffer the same fate as some other marine life. Gone forever. Someone better start paying attention, or it's inevitable.

We have a "trash patrol" on St. George Island, Fla. and one of our biggest trash pick-up days is July 5. Along with our annual "Chili Cookoff, along with other large summer events on the island. I wish we didn't need a trash patrol, but we do.Some visitors have the mentality that 'someone will pick it up'. And they're right! I don't think they'd want to come back if we just kept letting their trash pile up. It'd be a dump. They'd have to find a cleaner island to trash!

(Fishermans Corner) I couldn't agree more. And everything in this blog seems right on the mark. So, where is the snag? Do they feel there's no "big rush"? I live on the gulf and they are sadly mistaken if that is their way of thinking. Do it, or lose it.

I'm glad there was the tweet about the shark fins. The others were a depressing was to start the day.

I would hope that your article will reach the right people.and everyone will do what they can to rebuild, maintain, and care for the fragile environment that is the gulf coast. I for one wouldn't want to live anywhere else and will do my part by volunteering for any coastal work that needs to be done and I'm able to do.

I agree that people should try to cut down on their use of paper. I took heed to the post on paper towels and have changed that habit drastically. And I'm a fanatic about picking up trash here on the island. And there's never a shortage of that. Paper and much more. But I have a hard time paying my bills on line simply because I don't trust the security of the internet, I know thousands of people do it and have had no problems, but it makes me nervous. I don't order anything on line with my credit card for the same reason. I'm sure people will say I'm living in the stone ages, but it's a matter of protecting my identity and my privacy.( I don't do facebook or twitter either). Anymore, it's just too easy for people to aquire personnal information via the internet. So I'll have to continue to do my part, to cut back on the use of paper, in other ways.

I live on an island where the people depend on what the ocean produces for thier livlihood. Trash does not belong in our oceans nor is it healthy for the animals and birds that need it and it's bounty to survive. I saw a pelican with the plastic from a 6-pack around it's pouch because it couldn't see it when it dove 75ft. into the water to retrieve it's meal. How much more am I not seeing? It makes me sad that people have no more respect than to throw out their trash without a second thought. Maybe if they lived here instead of just visiting, taking the beauty of thel Gulf for granted, they'd think twice before they carelessly dumped their trash in the water or on the beach or anywhere else on the island. It all eventually ends up in our oceans.
