Kirk and I were excited to attend the Loggerhead Marinelife Center's Awards luncheon on November 8th along with the Petrisko Family at PGA National Resort & Spa where our neighbors, The Petrisko Boys were honored as finalists for The Blue Ambassador of the Year!  The recipient of this award exemplifies significant local contributions in marine conservation through their volunteer-related efforts. In 2009, Christian, Derek and Landon founded a club called Wild Over Wildlife.  They contantly raise money and awareness for animals and the environment. Their goal is to impact children of all ages about preservation and conservation issues. An example of some of these service projects that have impacted our neighborhood include weekly beach clean-ups during sea turtle nesting and hatching season, creation of an artificial reef off Vista Park Beach as well as placement of recycling bins also at Vista Park Beach. To give everyone an idea of how impressive it is to be a finalist for this award, Dr. Guy Harvey- Artist and Conservationist whom all of us are familiar with was also recognized at the Loggerhead Marinelife Center's Awards Luncheon. Congratulations again Christian, Derek and Landon on all of your achievements and especially all that you do for our neighborhood beaches!
