In Memory of Honey Gurl
So calm and gentle, she brought a smile to people of all ages, and from all parts of the world, who had the privilege to watch in her natural habitat. These beautiful marine species take on average 25 years to reach sexual maturity and thus why they take so long to recover from population crashes and are federally protected species.
Some time within the last 24 hours, Honey Gurl, 30 years of age, was held defenseless in the brutal hands of her spineless, heartless assailant. Her remains were discovered this morning, partially buried in sand, with her shell floating in the nearby waters.
Attached is a picture I took of her last year.
