There are far too many self-appointed experts jumping on this bandwagon. Who are they, where do they come from, and what are their credentials? Just because your surname is 'Cousteau' does not mean you have the same expertise and intelligence as your father. Just because you stand up and waste time at city council meetings, enthralled with the sound of your own voice once you get your hands on a microphone, doesn't mean you actually know what you are talking about. We are aware of people who run around on Marco with cameras and shovels, some with dubious reputations for actually destroying mangroves and Indian mounds -- and taking money to do it -- and all of a sudden they are collecting funds to save the mangroves?? We are happy to see Rookery Bay is involved and hope they keep a tight fist on the funds, and keep them out of the hands of the self-righteous speakers with their hand in every city pie at the council meetings.Leave it to the environmentalists and government entities unless you are qualified. This should not be a fund raiser.
