"Kemp's ridley sea turtles are among the rarest and most endangered of the seven species of sea turtle, so every turtle is very important to the population."

- Lynne Byrd, Mote Marine Medical Care Coordinator
 

[Marine Science]  Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium Releases Nine Rehabilitated Sea Turtles
Brittany Mattie, brittany.mattie@srqme.com

Nine juvenile rehabilitated Kemp's ridley sea turtles excitedly made it back to the wild on Monday, January 4. Since November 21, Mote Marine has received three separate groups of cold stun turtles, totaling over 20 turtles flown in for rehab from stranding in the Cape Cod region in November during a cold stun event. According to Mote, cold-blooded animals, such as sea turtles, are not able to regulate their body temperatures on their own. So when they find themselves in too-cold water, they become dangerously lethargic. This can be potentially fatal as their body functions slow down, leaving them susceptible to predators and boat strikes, allowing for algae to grow on their backs and more detrimental side effects.  

After being cleared for release from their two-month recovery, the nine turtles were given a last physical check and implanted with a PIT tag (passive integrated transponder). These small microchips function much like a pet microchip does, so the animals will be able to be identified if they strand again. Since the turtles originally stranded in the Atlantic Ocean, Mote's team of scientists and interns drove the turtles across the state for release on the east coast, in New Smyrna at Canaveral National Seashore. "It's always exciting when it's release day, because our goal is always to get these turtles back into the water as soon as we can," says Mote's Rehabilitation and Medical Care Coordinator Lynne Byrd. 

This species is considered endangered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Critically Endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources due to rising water temperatures, degradation of habitat and nesting areas and entanglement in marine debris. "Kemp's ridley sea turtles are among the rarest and most endangered of the seven species of sea turtle, so every turtle is very important to the population," says Byrd. "When we receive these cold stuns off the plane, they are in extremely critical condition, so it is rewarding to see them start to swim around and eat in the hospital, and it's so incredible to watch them zoom off as soon as we put them into the water. But we aren't done yet, as we have even more back at Mote that we're working to get healthy!" The third group of cold stun turtles that arrived at Mote on December 22 are still in critical condition and awaiting release back to the ocean. 

The nicknames of the nine turtles released were named after types of Christmas trees or Peanuts comic characters: Art, Canaan, Douglas, Fraser, Noble, Linus, Peppermint Patty, Schroeder, and Charlie Brown. You can read more about each patient, and the other's remaining in Mote's care, at mote.org/hospital

[New Grant]  Louis and Gloria Flanzer Philanthropic Trust Distributes $3.145 million in Matching Grants to Nonprofits in 2020

The Louis and Gloria Flanzer Philanthropic Trust launched its Contribution Matching Program in January 2020 to honor the Flanzer’s legacy of transformational change through community support. While the Flanzer Trust’s initial goal was to match $500,000 of contributions for select nonprofit organizations across the Suncoast, that cap was removed after individuals quickly met the match to help nonprofits better serve their clients throughout the coronavirus pandemic. By the end of 2020, the Flanzer Trust sent an incredible $3.145 million to agencies in Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte and DeSoto Counties, matching $1,572,713 in contributions from 6,500 donors. “The Flanzers believed in the inherent goodness in people - time and again Americans rise up to the task when need arises and is brought to their attention,” said Eric Kaplan, co-trustee of the Flanzer Trust. “And indeed, that was the case in 2020 when COVID-19 struck. People who never thought they’d ever need a hand needed one. Or perhaps their neighbors did.”

[SOON]  THEATER: Virtual: Florida Studio Theatre: Discovering Heritage , January 14, 11am

FST audiences may remember the work of husband and wife creative team Jason Odell Williams and Charlotte Cohn from their Winter Mainstage play, Handle With Care. Now, we reconnect with the couple as they share about their latest work - a musical - which continues their creative exploration of Cohn's Jewish heritage. As the Nazis plan to round up all of the Danish Jews for concentration camp assignment in the fall of 1943, one family of five attempts to elude capture by hiding in a fishing boat traveling to Sweden - and freedom.

[SOON]  MUSIC: Sarasota Orchestra: Inspirations , January 14 – January 17

Great composers have always looked to other great composers for guidance and inspiration. This program, from January 14 until January 17, 2021, features music whose composition was influenced by other masters. American Caroline Shaw, the youngest-ever recipient of the Pulitzer Prize in Music, was inspired to write her 2011 string quartet Entr’acte after hearing a performance of Haydn’s quartet, Op. 77, No. 2. Her captivating, cinematic writing has earned her widespread acclaim as one of the most important young voices in today’s music world. Antonin Dvorak had recently lost his mother when he decided to rework the slow movement from an earlier string quartet into the hypnotic Nocturne in B Major in 1883. Nine years later, Josef Suk, Dvorak's student and future son-in-law, was challenged by his teacher to “lighten up” his melancholy music. Suk responded with the sunny and romantic Serenade for Strings, by far his most popular and enduring work. $10 Streaming Access from January 21 - 26.
