GUN SHOP OWNERS DISTRAUGHT AFTER SHOOTING: Attorneys for the owners of Sunrise Tactical Supply say they are distraught about "the tremendous sense of responsibility in this situation and just horribleness that they feel that one of their weapons fell into the hands of this maniac."

Nikolas Cruz walked into the Sunrise Tactical Supply last year to buy the rifle used to kill as many people as he could Wednesday at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, according to authorities.

Awesome news !!

Is this good ?

Fantastic. Nice to see that Florida's FWC was involved. We don't always see good news about FWC, but this along with the successful rehab & release of a Florida Panther & her cubs recently, is excellent.

We were so excited to see Daniel pop up in this video! He was a terrific ranger for our first Florida everglades slough in January!

Daniel was very helpful to us at the information desk. He gave us good tips on where to go, told us about a great Wet Walk, and we even swapped stories about being Student Conservation Association alums. He is clearly committed to his job and loves what he does. Thank you!!

Let's round off the week with some gratitude! As the Everglades transitions from the dry season to the wet, the park looks back on those that helped pull us through some tough times following Hurricane Irma. Today we say thank you to our Alternative Winter Breakers from Central Michigan University whom you might have seen featured in one of our previous posts. CMU spent their time this past December helping lend a hand down in Flamingo! Bright smiles and even brighter attitudes!

Stay tuned for more action shots from our volunteer groups over the dry season! Our parks couldn't do without all of you! #volunteerappreciation
