The Sanibel-Captiva Chapter of START is currently in the midst of planning their 7th annual Cracker Fest fundraiser and celebration. The event will take place on November 6th at 6:00pm and will feature the live music of The Apple Butter Band, live and silent auctions, and entertainment. The event menu will highlight local sustainable seafood options, and chapter members will introduce a new program they are planning to launch at Thanksgiving.
San-Cap START has also recently teamed up with other Sanibel-based conservation organizations on “Clear Your Gear”, a collaborative effort to increase awareness about the threats of discarded fishing gear and how it can affect wildlife.
The chapter is also working hard with local restaurants and distribution partners to grow the Seafood Savvy program throughout the coming season.
