It's Cruise Season In Florida

Now that Snow Bird season is in fill swing in Florida, 
the Cruise Ships are lined up at every dock and port
 in the Sunshine state, from Jacksonville to Miami.
The tourists and the Cruise ships bring much needed
income to our state and we are happy to see them all
come here for their vacations.
But, what we don't want, or need, are the disgusting things that Cruise Ships leave behind, like raw sewage, dumped just offshore of our beautiful Florida beaches.
The impact that this has had on our wildlife is hard to understand unless you personally witnessed the damage done to this same wildlife by the BP Oil disaster last summer.
And, it's not just in the Oceans, it's also in our local lakes.
Right now, Boaters all over the state are being stopped and checked and if they are dumping raw sewage, they are being fined, big time.
Two things to consider, swimming in this cesspool pollution can make you very sick and eating any fish that live in it, will as well.
When our waters are used as public bathrooms, we all pay, eventually.
Doing the right thing is easy, finding people who actually will........
