There was another confirmed turtle kill today at the beach restoration out west near Pensacola--restoration out there has stopped until further notice.
Yes, that was in Navarre. The restoration project in Western South Walton and Destin have trollers and divers surrounding the dredging boat when they are pulling sand to prevent another Turtle death on this project. Out company seems to be very cautious and professional.
I have been following the project in Navarre and very glad that we didn't hire that company. They seem to have an unique set of problems including drivers who are not familiar with equipment and turn it over on the beach several times.
From what I understand, in Navarre they hired a "turtle trawler" at an added cost of $300,000 to make sure these things don't happen--maybe they'll just ask for a partial refund (what a pathetic situation). Mother Nature must certainly be pizzed off at this point.
Judging by the number of really happy people at the beach in front of Sandestin, the beach restoration is a home run.
