Florida approves shark protections

Some great news:

"Florida wildlife managers approved a ground-breaking shark protection measure on Wednesday that will make it illegal for anglers fishing state waters to keep tiger sharks or three species of hammerheads." - Miami Herald - complete article here.

Congratulations to Samantha Whitcraft and Neil Hammerschlag.  I know there were many others involved and it was a group effort (I just read Facebook and saw their posts ;) ).  And a shout out to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
