    A big THANK YOU goes out to Kirby Inland Marine, who donated two UTV's to F.A.M.I. just in time for the current turtle patrol season.  The patrollers advised they were great to have...and the patrollers found FOUR nests this season!!! 

     

    THANK YOU to our friends at KIRBY INLAND MARINE.
