The majority of the invasive species are introduced through irresponsible owners letting their pets go. If there was a restriction on invasive species easily going out pet store doors, many pet owners would be saved the trouble. If a licence was required, inexperienced people would not even think to just buy an exotic species. With people already currently owning an exotic species that they can no longer handle, their is still an option for them. Every year in florida there is a pet amnesty day in many areas where you can take your exotic species to give up, no questions asked.
Almost about every shark has the same salt concentration in the blood as the sea water they are swimming in. Bull Sharks, Instead, they only have 50% of the salt concentration in their blood. This makes them unique as they are able to switch from saltwater to freshwater very easily. The downside of switching from saltwater to freshwater is that they produce about 20% more urine while swimming in fresh water. You can identify a bull shark by many ways such as by a combination of characters including a stout body, short blunt snout, triangular serrated teeth in the upper jaw and no fin markings as an adult.

Through the classes, labs, and outdoor missions The Marine Science Center, in Pigeon Key, was just as it was advertised to my class: a Marine Science camp. We participated in several animal based adventures including tide pooling, which was my favorite animal-based adventure. I loved walking around the edges of the sea looking for small, oddball invertebrate. We worked in small groups and it was almost like my group was creating an extremely large collection of them. After an hour or two of intense searching, every team was called to a small tent to input their findings into the pool of invertebrates.
During the monsoon period, when water heights are up, the groups, who in general do not utilize canoes, stay away from the waterways deep in the tropical forest. In the dryer seasons, however, when the waters subside and beaches form at the rivers edge they reside on the shores and fish. The dry season also brings out river turtles to the banks of the beaches to lay their eggs where they bury them in the sand. The turtle eggs are a vital source of protein for the tribes, and their specialty is finding and digging them up.

We were able to see dolphin’s and feed seagulls that were very hungry.
We stay ready and vigilant, trying to stay stationary throughout the race. This year the weather and sea state was good, allowing more swimmers to make it to the finish line at Hemingway’s Restaurant on the eastern shore. We were needed by two swimmers this year. They all seem to come aboard with disappointment and resignation and we bring water and a towel and whatever else we have to offer them. Finding a place to sit, they settle in to wait for the end of the race, when our boat won’t be needed on the water anymore and we can take them to the marina where their supporters wait to console and offer solace to them.
