Someone stole a unique sign from Seahorse Key. The Refuge Manager and Law Enforcement Officer would greatly appreciate any information you can provide to help apprehend the thieves.
As you see in the photo, the sign was affixed on three telephone poles and well embedded into the dune.
It has survived tropical systems since 2015. Refuge Manager Andrew Gude noticed it was missing on 27 Aug 2021 at 10 am.
The cost of ordering, sign production, shipping, and replacing will be upwards of $5000. It is a custom produced sign that identified Seahorse Key, Cedar Key NWR, and the partnership with UF and Sante Fe College.
