See Bonnie J. Doerr on TV

Award-winning author, Bonnie J. Doerr, will be interviewed by Jenna Stauffer on TV, Friday, Feb. 17, 2012, at 8:30 AM & 7 PM EST on Comcast Channel 87 & U-verse Channel 19. Tune in to learn about Bonnie's exciting activities in the Florida Keys where she's hard at work researching for her next eco-mystery.

Here's a recent video clip from Bonnie.



"This is taking place in Key West at A&B Marina (as of February, 2012) under the sham sign "Tarpon Feeding." Tarpon will never get a bite of these carcasses. It's a pelican frenzy show. The carcasses are too large for pelicans to digest. Some may well die horrible deaths from internal punctures. Some bones can even puncture a bird's back. Older pelicans may stop hunting and young birds may never start. Carcasses are not natural food for them. Pelicans should hunt for small live fish. If you want to feed tarpon (and they're pretty cool to watch!), you can feed fish chow or feed them where there are no pelicans. If you want to feed pelicans, don't! It's usually illegal. The fish and wildlife officers will not be happy. Your bank account may shrink. If you ever accidentally drop a fish in the water by a pelican, I hope it's less than 8 inches. You can phone A&B Marina to protest: 305-294-2535."
