I'm getting bloody sick and tired of hearing about these sea turtles. They're just animals for goodness sake. And the governments bend over backwards to make sure a few of them hatch every year, no matter what the inconvenience to the humans of the area. Why don't they just nationalize and close all of the beaches to humans and declare them an off-limits national turtle wildlife refuge.

There a beaches all along the coast, both east and west. And you're worried about a mile of "unclean, unsafe" beach? Go to another while wildlife officials try to help what I'm sure you're destroying.

The problem, officials said, is that the state won't let heavy equipment into the area because recent storms and beach erosion have washed away sea turtle nest markers.

Have the people who mark the nests heard of GPS ? Map marking with GPS points ?

If Fay exposed the nests, the seagulls had their breakfast before the nest markers got up that day.

Humans, they are just animals for goodness sakes. Sounds the same, doesn't it? What is the inconvenience to the humans? Why not take out your discomfort on the boatowner , who somehow managed to lose control of his vessel and ended up parking it on your precious beach?

Enjoy your morning meal of tortoise soup, while you can.

Wrong headline, so it invites idiots to bash the sea turtles. If you read the article, they will be able to remove the wreckage by the end of the week.

Why can't they get their lazy butts out there and remove the boat by hand? They are allowed to drive those 4 wheelers on the sand. Use those to haul the stuff away.

Seriously...the people who live there need to just relax for a few more days. The boat will be taken out as soon as the eggs hatch. You're view might not be the best, but it's temporary.

Don't blame the knucklehead who took his boat out in a storm.
Don't blame the condo commandos who can't stand that their flat sterile beach temporarily has a little maritime character.
Don't blame the lazy beach cleaners who can't pick up any trash without diesel equipment.
Blame the sea turtles.
Then blame God...

To Conserva You're an idiot! For your information Sea Turtle nesting season is for nine months every year. From March first until the end of November. That is nine months that the beach can't be cleaned. They need to remove the nests like they used to do. All the nests that are still on the beach are dead, and the state knows this. They are just making their point and the public is paying for it, with a filthy beach.
Also why don't you try carrying a fifty foot boat off the beach by hand. The beach crew isn't just a bunch of lazy people. As I said before you are an idiot!

Dear I Hate,

Excellent points and well written!

Indeed, clean beaches are much nicer than those with all that unsightly sea life.

Seashells should be purchased at a store, and wildlife, filthy as it is, should be confined to zoos. Bully for our urban paradise!

Awwwww.....Does this mean that the rich folks living in the high rise condos will have to look at this shipwreck for some time now?

Not because it's my role as a volunteer firefighter, but as a security guard on night shift I was given a baby sea turtle to save. It was found at the condo I'm at by a grounds keeper. I simply walked to the beach and set him free at the water's edge.
