While Snorkeling at Coral Cove Park in Jupiter Florida I shot this Horned Reef Octopus.
It is the best underwater digital photography I have taken. The pic’s are enlargeable.
We celebrated World Ocean Day on June 7th and 8th for 2008.
EarthRehab joined the Friends of Jupiter Beach at 8am for a beach cleanup, and made sure that any volunteer that participated received a Green License Plate complimentary.
The Green License Plate campaign is a fundraiser for Nature Research. The Worlds most productive and respected Environmental Foundations and Sanctuaries receive the proceeds from the sale of the $10 plate. Visit EarthRehab today and see who is involved.
One June 7th and 8th at 11am we arrived at Coral Cove Park in Jupiter for a Group Snorkel.
EarthRehab explained the different habitats the group would encounter, Live Rock, Brown Algae, Worm Rock, Sponge, Red Algae, Sea Grass, and Limestone. We expected to see many Tropical Fish on the Reef because the visibility was greater than 20’.
So what did the Ocean Adventurers see underneath the water on this Coral Reef Eco-system?
A Green Sea Turtle, Manatee, Barracuda, Snook, Jacks, Blue Fish, Cuttlefish, French Grunt, Hog Fish, Angel Fish, Damsel Fish, Gobies, Blennies, Sergeant Major, Basslet, Parrotfish, Blue head Wrasse, and a Nurse Shark.
EarthRehab explained that the fish stock levels were down due to the Algae and Sediment buildup. Then to illustrate the point we took a deck brush out to the reef and cleaned small sections to allow the snorkelers an opportunity to see the Mature Purple Live Rock beneath. As we scrubbed the reef massive amounts of Tropical Fish showed their appreciation and searched the Live Rock for Invertebrate Worms.
The mature Live Rock that is present on this Reef could host several species of Invertebrate Soft Corals and Sponges if given the chance.

A white Porsche Boxster with the bright Green License Plate was spotted on Ocean Ave (A1A) in Jupiter. I sneaked up on it and snapped these pics.
Obviously this driver feels Nature Research is really important right now.
Then again, I display 3 Green License Plates on my car; it’s behind the Porsche.

Just in time for Thanksgiving, a lone Kemp’s Ridley Sea Turtle made her way to the Loggerhead Marine Life Center in North Palm Beach.
What a spectacular time she will have during this Holiday, seems like the perfect B&B for a Sea Turtle with Medical testing and treatment to boot.
Her name is Sweet Potato, and she along way from home. The MLC now has 3 Kemp’s, with 1 soon to be released back to the Oceans.

As I went to speak with the Administrators of Busch Wildlife I couldn’t help but notice 2 new cats.
The story goes as follows:
They were rescued (seized) from a local wild animal collector.
They may have been purchased by a firm in Ohio, and sold as Florida Panthers.
Cougars are not a Native species for Florida.
What a shame to believe that this type of Business is conducted in our own backyard.
They are currently in the BIG cat cage at Busch Wildlife Sanctuary in Jupiter.
