The Bone Is Terrible.
The 2023 Higher Calling Wildlife mission to southeastern Florida had that as its theme.
Jerry Gibson, 14, was to go on a protection, hunting, and photography adventure to demonstrate the value of seagrass flats, which grow top-notch sportfish like bonefish.
“The Bone Is Terrible.
With Capt. ‘ s assistance and a donation from the Coastal Conservation Association, We had a significant influence on Jerry and the current goal, Mo Estevez of Miami Bonefishing.
The breathtakingly lovely habitat in Miami’s ghost is Biscayne Bay. Jerry claimed that catching a fish was his wish, so Capt. In 2021, Mo and I went fishing together on the Atlantic side of the bay, where I also caught my second bonefish.
In the stunningly clear lakes, it didn’t take long to make contact with fish. Jerry finally realized his fishing desire after about 10 minutes of battle with a nanny shark that resembled bulldogs.
A bonnethead, a sizable southern shark, and another, somewhat smaller caregiver shark were all swimming around the boat when he finally caught one.
Jerry was given a pair of glasses by Bajio, which were truly memorable for him on the journey. He expressed his love for the way they made it possible for him to view things in the water that were unimaginable.
Captain. He left the bay feeling inspired and accomplished after Mo spoke with him about the bonefish, enable, and tarpon anglers who had come to do that.
We traveled to Marathon Key and took a plane journey of the grass flats. He observed two dolphins, a few dolphin species, several enormous stingray fish, and an even larger loggerhead sea turtle as well as the ball scarring caused by boats.
Teens who are struggling to get animals conservationists are mentored by Higher Calling Wildlife. We’ll talk more about photography in another article, but it played a significant role in our trip. Jerry has vowed to use photography to raise awareness of conservation.
Immediately, we’ll be sharing more from this journey, including Jerry’s Big Pine Key and Everglades images.
Would you be willing to assist another teenagers with similar experiences? This fall, we’ll be going on excursions in Tennessee and Colorado, and Florida is already on our radar for 2024.
We think we’re educating the next generation of environmentalists about how, despite obstacles, great things can still happen in their lives.
