Rare sight: Dozens rush to help beached whales on St. Simons Island
07/16/2019 6:40pm

The remains of several dead whales drew large crowds to the St. Simons Island shoreline Wednesday morning, a day after a viral video captured a massive rescue effort for about 25 pilot whales.The video, which was shared on News4Jaxs Facebook page, shows the more than two dozen whales that had beached themselves along the shore. People who saw what happened all got together and helped get the whales back in the water.They stuck with it until the pilot boat actually came and kind of intervened to push the pod off past the pier because they were afraid the whole pod would try to beach again to stick with the one that was sick, St. Simons Island resident Terri Taylor said, describing the rescue effort.The video was posted by Dixie McCoy. Numerous News4Jax viewers shared the video. It is so sad. Oh my God. Theyre going to die if they dont get help, McCoy is heard saying. We need angels out here today. The Wildlife Resources Division from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources said most of the whales were successfully pushed back out into the water but three of the whales did not survive.I think I saw a once in a lifetime occurrence yesterday when the whales came up. My daughter-in-law came up, she was on the kayak. At first, she thought they were dolphins, then she noticed they have fins and they were actually whales, witness Lee Dorough said. Then we heard them scream that there were two up on the shore. There were 30 in that pod, and they all went running up there. My son and my granddaughter plus so many people were trying to get them out to sea. Dr. Quinton White, the executive director of the Marine Science Research Institute at Jacksonville University, said he was told by a former student that the phenomenon occurred near a Coast Guard post on East Beach.Hours after this happened, Glynn County Emergency Management posted on Facebook saying in part: This has been an unusual occurrence but events like these can really show the level of care and support from our community. Thank you to everyone that helped those that couldnt help themselves today.White said apparently the whales have been near the shore recently, but its unclear why. The Wildlife Division said pilot whales are the most common type to strand in large numbers.The Georgia Department of Natural Resources was on site investigating, White said. One by one, many of the whales were helped back out to sea. Amazing, McCoy says in the video. A sight I never thought Id see in a lifetime.

Florida's 2-day sport lobster season opens next week
07/17/2019 7:27am

The 2019 spiny lobster season opens with the two-day recreational mini-season July 24-25, followed by the regular commercial and recreational lobster season, which starts Aug. 6 and runs through March 31, 2020.Spiny lobster season is an exciting time of year to be on the water, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Chairman Robert Spottswood said. But its also a time to remember safety on the water and to remember the importance of taking care around Floridas important coral reefs. Participants must have a recreational saltwater fishing license and a spiny lobster permit to recreationally harvest unless they are exempt from recreational license requirements.Florida wildlife officials have details on bag limits, size limits, where to harvest and other regulations on their website.Wildlife officials are asking harvesters using bully netting to keep lights directed toward the water and avoid shining them at houses or people along the shoreline.Anyone caught with illegal lobster will be charged accordingly. Penalties can include up to 60 days in jail and fines up to $500.FWC reminds divers to use care around corals and other marine life and care with yourself and other divers. Always use a divers-down warning device.

Residents want northern St. Johns County development halted
07/17/2019 6:03am

Neighbors are blasting a developers plan to add hundreds of new townhomes, apartments and businesses along Race Track Road at St. Johns Parkway.Theyre demanding commissioners put a stop to the new development in Northern St. Johns County. Their main concern is more traffic congestion in the growing area not far from State Road 9B and the Durbin Pavilion project which is still under construction.For some neighbors, the plan to add up to 250,000 square feet of commercial and office space, plus 400 apartments and townhomes in this highlighted spot at the corner of Race Track and St. Johns Parkway is also a concern because of the impact on local schools.According to the St Augustine Record, developers claim the Publix, currently under construction, would offset some of that congestion. But residents are not convinced. Moving forward, the developer will need to re-apply with a new plan. Once thats submitted, commissioners will need to review it again.Neighbors are invited to ask questions and make sure their voices are heard Wednesday at 6 p.m. the St. Johns County Service Center on Flora Branch Boulevard.

Push to clean waterways with Operation Plastic Pollution Purge
07/17/2019 4:26am

The American Sailing Association is asking boaters to be on the lookout for any plastic they see out on the water. The campaign is called, Operation Plastic Pollution Purge.Through the campaign, the association is asking boaters to take less plastic out on the water and pick up any plastic in the water to be brought back and recycled. Brian Record frequently goes out on the water. He said he picked up several pieces of plastic over the weekend while kayaking.It was surprising to see that, explained Record. Its a beautiful creek to enjoy nature and all of a sudden its beer cans and water bottles.According to the American Sailors Association, there are roughly 18 million pounds of plastic that make their way into the ocean each year. To tackle the problem, they are encouraging boaters to pick up any trash they find in hopes of protecting the environment and marine life.Tony Jones, the owner of Windward Sailing in Fernandina Beach, said they remind boaters to pick up any plastic they find.We dont actually in our area find it all that much, said Jones. I think its because we dont have as many people but in some places, its really bad.Jones said if everyone does their part, it will go a long way.If everybody thats out, all boaters, when they see plastic pick it up, it would really help, said Jones.Some docks do have recycling bins by the water for boaters to dispose of any plastic they find.

Are implanted microchips wave of future for humans?
07/17/2019 7:08am

Imagine having a microchip implanted into your skin to help with lifes functions.Have you ever considered the idea Perhaps its not as crazy as it sounds, considering more than 4,000 people in Sweden have had microchips inserted into their hands, and more could decide to do so, according to the New York Post. So, what exact purpose does this serve Inventors said its an alternative way to carry out everyday activities such as entering office buildings -- in place of using key cards -- monitoring your health, and even making purchases in stores, instead of using cash or credit cards.Thats right: you can pay for something simply by swiping a hand.The technology was invented by a man named Jowan Osterlund, who said in the New York Post article that hes been approached by intrigued investors around the world.Sweden as a country is trending toward going cashless, with coins and notes making up just 1 of its economy.Of course, there are concerns, mainly about the privacy of someones data once the microchip is inserted.But Osterlund insists its safe and hopes it will become a global craze in the near future. Is this something you would consider doing Let us know in the poll below.
