Commisioner Karen Marcus, ERM and the Parks Dept are major from the Government side, and from the Dive Association side, Shana and Dean of Pura Vida Dive Shop have done about 99% of the work to make this happen. They have massive time in this project.Who is doing this project? Just curious, I want to read more.
I don't have a problem with sharing access. I am asking if they're building special habitat for marine life in an area that makes that life even more accessible to the predations of the collectors.
In short, are they building more attractive seahorse and octo hotels in areas they can't protect? If so, I'd rather see the critters take their chances foraging and hiding in the areas that already exist.
I've got no sayso here. Don't even live or vote in Palm Beach County. Just expressing my concerns...

I read your statement as saying that the total involvement of all involved in the project the other ones you mention above did less than 1% of the work. Can that mean you are saying Force E overstated their involvement?
And those 60,000 registered boaters who put up the funding.... what about them? Could you have missed a decimal point (and a huge thank you) somewhere in your calculations?
One of the owners of Force-E worked on this project in the beginning and we look forward to its completion.
Reck diver, considering how much you seem to enjoy creating arguements with me, why not meet me at BHB and cut through the internet nonsense....this is getting ridiculous.
What would such a meeting accomplish? Clearly you disagree with what I post, whether fact or opinion. On the other hand, at times I find your writings very interesting, quite revealing, eye popping and unbelievably amazing.
