Living Green: Monofilament Clean Up

We got a sobering reminder of the dangers of disgarded fishing line to Suncoast wildlife this past weekend. Beggar the dolphin was found dead and Mote Marine Lab scientists found several fishing hooks and line inside the animal. That's what makes a weekend event so important. On Saturday, volunteers will be collecting old fishing line, hooks and other items that could potentially harm our wildlife.
