The City of Deerfield Beach is Helping to Protect Endangered Sea Turtles
The City of Deerfield Beach has partnered with Loggerhead Marinelife Center (LMC) to adopt the center’s Responsible Pier Initiative (RPI). The RPI is designed as a collaborative tool to work directly with anglers and fishing pier managers. The purpose of these efforts is to provide First Responders  with the necessary resources to respond effectively to sea turtle injuries and strandings on or around fishing piers.  Shared from www.deerfield-beach.com
