Water damage is a terrible thing to go through; however, it helps to know that Plumbers FL Services will be there quickly and efficiently when needed. Christian and Carlos make a great team. They are friendly, polite, and hard working. They are a credit to the Plumbers FL, and I’m glad they were here to help me. Thank you Christian and Carlos and the Plumbers FL crew. I always call Plumbers FL, and recommend their services to neighbors and friends. Thank you.
We have used Plumbers Florida many times in the past. The technicians are always pleasant, professional and do outstanding work. Our last experience was with William who went above and beyond our expectations. His communication skills and advise were spot on. As well as just a really, really nice man!!!
ACI 2011 AWARD WINNING VIDEO. When the waters of the Gulf of Mexico were threatened by the Deepwater Horizon Spill last spring, FWC and its partners acted quickly. Biologists and rescue boats went out daily in search of impacted sea turtles. 130 visibly oiled turtles were found. Spotters stood on the boats fishing towers while staff used handheld nets to reach the turtles. Once aboard, the turtles were assessed, measured, weighed, photographed, tagged and samples were taken. Each site a turtle was found was recorded by GPS. Turtles not impacted were returned to the water while those impacted were brought to Gulf World in Panama City, FL. At this location they were given primary care until they were deemed stable and medically cleared to move to a new facility at Sea World. At Sea World, impacted turtles were completely rehabbed until they could be released back into the Gulf. On August 18, 2010 23 Kemp’s Ridley’s were releases in Cedar Key, FL.
As a secondary precaution, FWC staff decided to move entire clutches of nests on the Gulf beaches. Each clutch has 45-50 eggs. These eggs were late in the incubation period where there gender was already determined and the magnetic cues that help turtles return to their beach of birth hopefully was already imprinted.
Coolers were then taken to a holding area where they waited for Fed Ex trucks to take them to their next location at Kennedy Space Center in Port Canaveral, FL. These trucks were specially outfitted for this travel.
The Kennedy Space Center offered climate controlled storage facility. Coolers were monitored and as hatchling’s emerged they were released into the oil free waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
More than 13,000 hatchling’s were released.
