The donated money will go toward medical supplies for sea turtles at CMA. CMA Sea Turtle Manager Danielle O’Neil said, “We truly appreciate selfless individuals such as these who help us take care of our sea turtles. We couldn’t do what we do without amazing community support like this.” “Friends for Florida” was founded in 2007 by the Mark family of Lutz. They have also raised $2,050 for Save Our Seabirds, Tampa Bay Watch and Big Cat Rescue. The group has also taken part in various clean-up and recycling efforts.
