Wednesday, July 13th, 7pm: "Annual Joint Meeting of the Tampa Bay Sierra Club, Tampa Audubon Society and Suncoast Native Plant Society at Nature's Classroom"

Our joint program for July will feature Dr. Phillip Motta from USF who specializes in the study of the feeding activity of bony fishes, sharks, and rays. Most of his past research has been on tropical reeffishes and sharks, as the evolution of feeding mechanisms in sharks and rays presents a unique opportunity to investigate the function of feeding systems in fishes and other aquatic vertebrates. He is certain to have many interesting observations regarding the threats to marine ecology stemming from human activities both on the water and on land. See full program itinerary here.

A note of sincere condolences to the family of Rick and Tanya Crete, late owners of Rick's Backyard Birds, who were killed in a tragic car accident. Our thoughts are with their families.

The June 18 Paint with a Purpose Tampa Audubon Fun-Raising Event was a great success. TAS received $367.50 for this event! Thank you to all who participated!
