Do Maine’s Turtles Rate Preference Over Deer and Moose

Living Together in Perfect Harmony?

Somewhere I hear a distant voice singing Kumbaya…….

The below photo was taken by our good friend and photographer, Milt Inman. It’s not photoshopped but I thought rare enough to find this many and various forms of wildlife all closeup and within camera lens. The black bird I believe to be an anhinga, there’s two turtles and one snake…..no partridge in a pear tree. Cool shot Milt. Thanks!

The Coast Guard flew the turtles to Orlando on Friday, but the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (the federal agency that apparently oversees sea-turtle protection) reportedly arranged the flight. The Daytona Beach News Journal reports that 20 turtles were taken to SeaWorld Orlando, five loggerhead turtles were taken to the Volusia County Marine Science Center, and three other facilities in Florida also took in the displaced creatures. …

[S]ome are being treated at a separate $4.5 million “state of the art” facility.
