The Edwards and Skier's Islands, located in Roberts Bay. (Sarasota, Fl) Witness the new school of bay dolphon that call this water home; the manatee that commute every day north in the morning...south in the evening; the huge schools of snook, redfish and trout; the healthy read and black mangroves that ring Edwards Island, and the many osprey and occasional eagle that fish from the Australian pines. This is nature at its best! We all want Sarasota Bay to flourish. DO NOT DISRUPT THE ECOSYSTEM OF THESE ISLANDS! Edwards Island is a special place. The Australian pines of Edwards Island make it so. Why disrupt and spend money on this when these animals and trees have called it home for over 40 years. In this time of national economic crisis we beleive there are many unmet needs more critical to our citizens than spending County employee time and public funds to EXPERIEMENT with these islands. Just leave these Islands in the existing state and reject proposal to destroy. Please sign with Name and Address if you are a Sarasota County resident...PASS THIS ON!
