A fabulous story of generosity this #SustainableSunday! A well-known and impactful public figure, developer, philanthropist, and visionary, longtime Key West resident David Wolkowsky recently, prior to his passing in Sept. 2018 at age 99, donated Ballast Key, a 14-acre island located in the clear blue and vibrant waters eight miles west of #KeyWest, to be forever protected through the commitment of The Nature Conservancy and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as part of the Key West National Wildlife Refuge. The island is home to many imperiled and endangered species of native plants and wildlife, and the shallow waters that surround the key teem with inhabitants of a healthy coral reef ecosystem including threatened and endangered sea turtles. #ConnectAndProtect 📸 Timothy Greenfield Sanders
