Retirement is great. I paddle my kayak to work; I am doing something I love; and I get to help endangered species.
Jim is a conservationist in his soul and in his actions. After retiring from UPS, he has been volunteering with the Ponce Inlet Marine Science Center, which is dedicated to marine studies and the rehabilitation and preservation of endangered species. They study the life cycles and habits of various sea creatures, and they educate the public at large about sea life and its importance to our existence. One day he may be tube-feeding baby sea turtles or doing maintenance chores on the center's property. The next day he is on a boat rescuing an uncooperative 70-pound green sea turtle caught in a crab trap line.
