Gulf Trace recognized for being sea turtle friendly

Maxwell started the Turtle Watch group in 1995. As an animal lover, volunteering as an advocate for endangered species is a passion.

"You just get hooked," she said.

On April 5, a Kemps Riley turtle was caught in a net and drowned. Maxwell said the turtle looked to be a nesting female. The South Walton Turtle Watch advises beach goers to watch what they put in the water.

"Be a good steward," she said.
