Infrastructural communication fillip to 4 tourist spots in Basirhat for safer visits

first_imgKolkata: The state government has decided to create a tourist hub by developing the infrastructure and communication involving four tourist spots under Basirhat constituency in North 24-Parganas. This was decided at a high-level meeting at Nabanna on Tuesday which was chaired by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. It was held with an aim to boost safety and security in and around Kachua Loknath Temple near Basirhat where five persons were killed and about 20 injured in a stampede-like situation in the wee hours on August 23.

The Tourism department will develop a tourist circuit connecting Kachua and Chakla temples, Chandraketugarh and Dhanyakuria Rajbari. The Public Works Department will do the necessary work for road widening as part of strengthening communication. There will be bus services from Chakla to Howrah via Kachua and vice versa and they will pass Sealdah on way,” said Jyotipriya Mallick, the state Food and Supplies minister who is also the district president of the Trinamool Congress in North 24-Parganas.

A buffer zone will be created where the devotees can have ‘prasad’,” a senior official present in the meeting added. The gates of both Kachua and Chakla temple will be widened and the lighting facilities will also get a facelift. “There is a house located on a 10 cottah land just beside the Kachua temple that has been lying under lock and key for several years. Our government will take over the house and develop facilities like toilets, refreshments and the like for devotees. The temple committee has been asked to take up renovation of the temple,” the official added. The state government will take over the waterbody beside the shrine on lease and will put galvanized iron bars on its bank to prevent any sort of untoward incident. On the fateful day, some people fell in the waterbody and sustained injuries. The Chief Minister had announced compensation of Rs 5 lakh for the families of the deceased, Rs 1 lakh for those seriously injured and Rs 50,000 for those with minor injuries in the incident.last_img read more


Conservative defence critic questions plan to send Canadian peacekeepers to Mali

first_imgThe Conservative defence critic is questioning the Trudeau government’s decision to send peacekeeping troops to the troubled West African nation of Mali.A senior government source, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed late Friday night that Canada will dispatch an aviation task force to Mali as part of a United Nations peacekeeping mission, in a move defence critic James Bezan said raises more questions than answers.“Why did it take them so long to make this announcement and is this in Canada’s national interest or is this in the Liberals’ interest?” Bezan said. “Are they making this announcement because of all the criticism they’ve received for breaking the promise of deploying 600 troops and 150 police officers on UN missions, when we’re at the lowest levels in history?”The government source said the task force will be in Mali for up to 12 months and an official announcement on the deployment will be made Monday.In terms of troop numbers, Canada is currently at a historic low for participation in peacekeeping missions. Canada had a total of 43 peacekeepers deployed around the world at the end of December, the most recent UN numbers indicate, down from 62 in November.The decline, largely the result of a reduction in the number of Canadian police officers deployed to Haiti, means Canada has fewer peacekeepers in the field than at any point since the 1950s.Bezan said the Conservatives want to see Canada involved in more peacekeeping, including in Ukraine. But he said it must be in the national interest and in some cases, it may be preferable to fight under Canadian instead of UN command.“We know that this is incredibly dangerous,” Bezan said. “We support our troops and know they are completely capable of doing it. But we are hesitant about putting our troops in harms way under UN command.”He said peacekeeping decisions should not be made based on nostalgia about blue helmets.“There is concern about how we are going to keep the peace when we have insurgencies, terrorism, failed states and multiple different missions going at the same time and no answers of how this is in Canada’s national interest,” he said.Mali has been in turmoil since a 2012 uprising prompted soldiers to overthrow the country’s president. The power vacuum that was created led to an Islamic insurgency and a French-led war that ousted the jihadists from power in 2013.However, insurgents remain active and the UN has seen its multinational peacekeeping force in the region suffer more than 150 fatalities since its mission began in 2013.Francois Audet, who studies Canadian humanitarian policy and international relations at the Universite du Quebec a Montreal, said there are four million people in need of aid in the country, many of whom are inaccessible to civilian aid workers because it’s too dangerous.The role of peacekeeping operations is to develop secure zones to permit civilians to reach those populations, he said.Audet said the country has been made more dangerous in recent years with the arrival of armed factions in the months and years after the toppling of the Libyan regime in 2011.“It’s a dangerous country for civilians and especially for western interests,” Audet said in a French-language interview. “So if you’re a development or aid organization, your access outside of the big cities like Bamako is extremely difficult, if not impossible.”He said Canada’s entry into the conflict is “very late.”“It’s not too late, but it’s very late,” Audet said. “And since (the Liberals took power), our allies have exhausted themselves, so we need a system of change where each country needs to take their part of the responsibilities.”In November, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made pledged during a peacekeeping summit in Vancouver to offer six helicopters and two transport aircraft, plus their associated pilots and support personnel, as well as a 200-strong quick reaction force to the UN.— With files from Nicole ThompsonNote to readers: This is a corrected story. A previous version erroneously said Francois Audet studies Canadian humanitarian policy and international relations at the Universite de Montreal.last_img read more


Spanish prosecutors file tax evasion charges against Shakira

first_imgMADRID — Spanish prosecutors are charging pop music star Shakira with tax evasion, alleging she failed to pay more than 14.5 million euros ($16.3 million) between 2012 and 2014.The charges Friday allege Shakira listed the Bahamas as her official residence for tax purposes during those years but was in fact living in Spain with her partner, Spanish soccer player Gerard Pique.Prosecutors in Barcelona say her travel abroad was for short periods because of professional commitments, while most of the year she stayed in Spain. They want her to pay tax in Spain on her worldwide income.The Colombian singer officially moved to Spain for tax purposes in 2015.A magistrate will assess whether there is enough evidence to put Shakira on trial.Shakira’s representatives said they had no immediate comment.The Associated Presslast_img read more


Greater deposit protection coming for Ontarios new homebuyers in 2018

TORONTO — The company that administer Ontario’s home warranty program says buyers of new homes will soon have greater deposit protection with a new policy and regulation expected to come into force next year.Tarion Warranty Corp. is proposing to increase deposit protection for houses from the current $40,000 to 10 per cent of the purchase price, from a minimum of $60,000 to a maximum of $100,000.This means that houses with a purchase price below $600,000 will have up to $60,000 in coverage.Deposits are typically around five per cent of the selling price of a home, although they can range higher in hot real estate markets.The changes will bring the amount covered into better alignment with the province’s home prices.According to the Toronto Real Estate Board, the average selling price in the Greater Toronto Area in September was $775,546.Tarion says deposits for condominium dwelling units are not part of the proposed changes because condominium dwelling units already enjoy significant protection.The company says the new deposit protection coverage is expected to be in place in January 2018.The proposed policy and draft regulation, which will be considered on Dec. 14, is posted on Ontario’s Regulatory Registry for 45 days.The proposed changes stem from a provincial omnibus bill that legislated reforms in Tarion’s structure and mandate, including separating the provider of Ontario’s warranty program for new homes from the body regulating new home builders. read more

The White House also said Russia’s involvement in Ukraine made it “particularly appropriate to take this step now.”The White House says the action means imports of Russian goods will be subject to normal tax rates.The announcement comes on the day that Russian President Vladimir Putin (POO’-tihn) said his country has pulled troops back from the border it shares with Ukraine. But the White House says there is “no evidence” that Russia has done so. read more


UNbacked cholera vaccination campaign kicks off today in Haiti

.“Today in Haiti marks the first day of a vaccination campaign against cholera in areas ravaged by Hurricane Matthew,” Stéphane Dujarric, the spokesman for the UN Secretary-General, told reporters in New York, noting that the campaign is supported by the Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO), the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and others.“The target population is estimated at 820,000 people over one year of age. Activities will focus on municipalities most vulnerable to cholera outbreaks in the two southern departments of Grand’Anse and Sud, where there have been significant destruction of water and other supply systems,” Mr. Dujarric said.According to a news release from PAHO/WHO, the decision of WHO and other members of the Global Task Force for Cholera Control to approve the request of the Haitian Ministry of Health (MSPP) to bring one million doses of oral vaccine against cholera is based on the goal of reducing the burden of cholera cases on health care facilities, and of reducing deaths in the departments of the Sud and Grand’Anse. In the release, PAHO-WHO Representative Dr. Jean-Luc Poncelet stressed the importance of the leadership of MSPP in this vaccination campaign.Haiti: A new UN-funded water plant to cope with ongoing cholera epidemic. Credit: UN News CentreSome municipalities in the southwest peninsula have reported outbreaks of cholera since the hurricane hit on October 4, “so it is important to work together and with partners to build local capacity for clinical management of cases in the cholera treatment centres,” he said. Mr. Poncelet noted that PAHO-WHO will support the Ministry of Health in activities including development of tools and technical support as well as reception, storage and transport of the vaccines and supplies in departments, municipalities and institutions. PAHO/WHO will also support training of vaccination staff supervisors and operators, and the coordination, collection and analysis of information, monitoring and evaluation, he added. “The vaccine is an additional intervention which will help us to save lives, but does not replace the efforts that the Government supports in the field of water and sanitation,” emphasized Dr. Daphne Benoit, Haiti’s Minister of Public Health.Earlier in the day, Alessandra Vellucci, the Director of the UN Information Service in Geneva, told reporters that as of 7 November, the appeal for Haiti was still only 36 per cent funded. read more


Fahrenheit 119 next in BUFS lineup

The state of politics in the United States is placed under the microscope in the latest offering by the Brock University Film Society (BUFS).Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 11/9 will be screened at the Film House on Thursday, Nov. 8.The humour at the beginning of the film soon takes a sinister twist, with audiences warned that the U.S. is not immune to the horrors that befell Weimar Germany.Moore predicted that Donald Trump would become the 45th president of the United States. Travelling across the country, he interviews American citizens to get a sense of the social, economic and political impact of Trump’s victory. Moore also takes an in-depth look at the media, the Electoral College, the government agenda and his hometown of Flint, Michigan.According to Vulture, “This isn’t [Moore’s] smoothest film, but it’s his fullest and most original. It’s also his most urgent, which is really saying something. It’s one of the most urgent films ever made.”Tickets are available at the Film House in the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre on the evening of screenings.General admission is $9 or $7 for members, plus tax. Memberships are available through the Film House website. Visit the BUFS web page for a full list of this season’s selections. A calendar of films coming to PAC over the next couple of months is posted on the Film House website. Look for the red B that indicates a BUFS-hosted screening.For more than 40 years, the Department of Communication, Popular Culture and Film has hosted the film society (previously known as a series) to bring some of the best in independent, international and Canadian cinema to St. Catharines.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span> read more


Planetary Annihilation Kickstarter aims to bring RTS back in a big way

first_imgSix months after Double Fine Adventure kick-started the Kickstarter game trend, new promising titles are still showing up on the crowdfunding site. One of the latest of these is Planetary Annihilation, a large-scale real time strategy game from Uber Entertainment, the company behind the stylish third-person shooter Monday Night Combat. With PA, Uber is looking to get away from zoomed-in, squad focused RTS tactics. Taking a note from the classic Total Annihilation, they want to create a game that’s all about big, impressive battles.At first, the concept video for Planetary Annihilation looks like a scene out of any Command and Conquer game, with foot soldiers, tanks, and aircraft doing battle while decked out in orange and red. But things get interesting when the orange player sends a rocket up to the moon, constructs a lunar base, and begins firing back down onto the battlefield.The gameplay possibilities of surface, air, and orbital units interacting are intriguing enough on their own, but Uber’s video takes things another step further. Not content to let his enemy be pummeled by moon cannons, the orange commander sends units deeper into space, where they convert an asteroid into a massive, devastating bombardment weapon.The developers have ideas for several slick features as well, beyond just the crazy weaponry. The controls will be designed to juggle units spread across an entire solar system using a split interface and multiple windows. And despite the emphasis on large-scale warfare, the game will be able to create randomized battlegrounds through a procedural planet generator.Uber Entertainment has until September 14 to raise the $900,000 they need to create Planetary Annihilation. If their Kickstarter succeeds, the team will develop the game for PC, Mac, and — by fan request — Linux.Read more at the Kickstarter project pagelast_img read more

Engineer says he misjudged location in fatal Amtrak wreck

first_imgSEATTLE — An engineer told investigators he misjudged the location of an Amtrak train before it derailed in Washington state on a new high-speed route while traveling at nearly 80 mph — more than twice the speed limit around a curve, the National Transportation Safety Board disclosed Thursday.In an NTSB summary of interviews with the engineer and conductor on duty during the deadly crash, the engineer said he knew the curve with a 30 mph speed restriction was at milepost 19.8 and he planned to start braking about a mile before reaching it.But he said he didn’t see a marker at milepost 18 or a nearby 30 mph speed warning sign. The engineer said he then misinterpreted another signal at the 19.8 milepost.He said he applied the brake as soon as he saw a 30 mph sign at the start of the curve, but the train derailed seconds later as it entered the 30 mph zone and plunged off an overpass and onto busy Interstate 5— the Pacific Northwest’s main north-south highway.NTSB board member Bella Dinh-Zarr said days after the wreck that the locomotive’s emergency brake went off automatically and was not manually activated by the engineer.last_img read more

Minimum wage increase helps individuals ok for small biz

first_imgPeggy’s Restaurant near Merrill Field in Anchorage. Hillman/KSKAAlaska’s statewide minimum wage increase went into effect on Tuesday. Now, thousands of jobs in the state pay $8.75 an hour — a dollar increase. So what does this means for Anchorage’s small businesses and consumers?26 min wage – betterIt’s the slow part of the afternoon at Peggy’s Restaurant. Customers wander in, a couple of regulars hang out at the counter. Waitress Susie Sander tallies up bills.“Everybody loves it,” she says about the minimum wage increase. “$8.75 – honey – $8.75 an hour…”Sander has been working at Peggy’s for 10 years. “All the money I make goes to kids and, I mean husband, but the extra dollar, honey, I can use for myself.”Susie Sander at the register at Peggy’s Restaurant in Anchorage. Hillman/KSKAWilliam White is washing dishes in the back.“Well, I haven’t seen it on my check yet, but hopefully on my next check it will help out a lot.”He plans to use it for paying the rent.Alaskans overwhelmingly voted for the increase last November. Minimum wage went up by a dollar this year and will again in January. Then, increases will match inflation. According to the state’s Department of Labor and Workforce Development, about 16,000 jobs are affected by the increase.Dan Robinson, chief of research and analysis at the department, says the impact on the overall economy will be negligible.“In the macroeconomic data that we look at, it will almost certainly not be identifiable as having caused a bump here or a change in trend there.”But Robinson says it will matter to individuals. He says that 64 percent of the people who are working at jobs that likely pay minimum wage are over 25. One quarter are over 45. Most of them — 57 percent — are female.Peggy’s Restaurant regular Curt Woodard says the increase is long overdue and the stair-step implementation makes it workable.“The best thing they can do is just what they’re doing. Give’em a dollar this year, a dollar next year. And then it averages out and everyone can take it a little bit at a time.”Manager Daniel Smith agrees; most businesses can handle the small increases over time. He says that’s not the issue.“Nobody that owns a business minds it, it’s to get the rest of your customers to understand why you’re raising your prices. That you have to raise your prices because these guys cannot live on $7.75 an hour.”Smith says they’ll only raise their prices in small increments — 15 cents on one item, 25 cents on another. He says they’ll cut some hours, too, but that’s mostly because business is slower in the winter. In the long run, they may give all of their employees a raise, even the ones not making minimum wage, just to be fair.But for many small businesses in Anchorage, the minimum wage increase won’t make a difference. I spoke with more than a dozen business owners who say they either pay over the minimum wage already or are so small they don’t have employees anyhow.last_img read more


Fast forward GST set to transform face of Indian logistics industry

first_imgTruck drivers walk out of a Commercial Taxes Department check post after getting clearance to cross a checkpoint with their goods at the Chavadi checkpoint on the outskirt of Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu in this September 5, 2015 file photo. The GST rollout was supposed to sweep away hundreds of checkposts on India’s state borders, paving the way for the seamless movement of goods from the tropical south to the Himalayas in the north. But political opposition and the dilution of some of the tax’s key tenets mean hopes are fading that the checkposts will be demolished any time soon, a major blow for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s reform agenda. REUTERS/Sivaram VIndia’s greatest tax reform — replacing an array of provincial duties with a nationwide goods and services tax — is transforming the logistics industry in a country where moving stuff around is notoriously difficult to do, executives say.The advent of organised retail and e-commerce began modernising warehouses in India a decade ago, but most firms still rely on musty, dilapidated “godowns”, as storehouses are known colloquially.The unified tax system is expected to bring change on a far grander scale, removing distortions created by differential taxes and duty structures imposed across India’s 29 states and 7 union territories.”When we moved from one state to the other, it felt like moving from one country to another,” said Ramesh Agarwal, chairman of New Delhi-based Agarwal Packers and Movers.From July 1, the new Goods and Services Tax, or GST, introduced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government, will change all that, with the biggest tax reform seen since India won independence from British colonial rule 70 years ago.Companies that have previously based storage models on tax efficiency can move to the much more cost efficient, demand-based hub-and-spoke model used globally.Anticipating the change, Agarwal’s firm, for example, has carved India into five regions and is setting up one massive warehouse in each. “There’s no tax arbitrage to be gained. So decisions on manufacturing, warehousing and selling will be purely driven by the real costs of manufacturing and going to market, that is the single biggest advantage of GST,” said R Subramanian, Managing Director at DHL Express in Mumbai.But, the reform, along with the gradual shift in India’s service dominated economy toward more manufacturing, has paved the way for ultra-modern storage sites with automated conveyers, RFID-enabled tracking and IT-enabled warehousing management systems.The potential growth, and investment needed for modernization has spurred a slew of deals between Indian firms and major global private equity players and pension funds.In the last two years alone, as Modi made GST a priority, these investors have put $1.5 billion in the warehousing business.”GST is not only a tax reform, it is also a business reform as a whole, and a lot of businesses are now restructuring their supply chains,” said Rohit Jain, a partner with Economic Laws Practice in Mumbai. A forklift operator stacks containers at the godown of Agarwal Packers and Movers Ltd. on the outskirts of Mumbai on Thursday. REUTERS/Shailesh AndradeReplacing ‘Godowns’Canada Pension Plan Investment Board last month committed to spend $500 million in a joint venture with India’s IndoSpace. Other foreign firms putting money in the sector include Carlyle Group, Warbug Pincus and Fairfax India Holdings.JSW Steel, India’s biggest domestic steel producer, is also mulling a plan to bring down the number of its 20 plus warehouses across the country to five, and many more companies are following suit, said a company executive.Reliance Retail, the retail unit of Reliance Industries , which has around 100 distribution centers across the country, also plans to “optimize some,” said a company executive.Mahindra Logistics is exploring an initial public offering, or a sale to a foreign partner, while rival Future Supply Chain Solutions is looking to do likewise, according to media reports.DHL Express Managing Director R Subramanian still anticipates bureaucratic headaches, notably from GST’s e-way bill system, requiring vehicle details from pickup to delivery, which he reckons would generate 90 million entries daily for the express delivery sector alone.With 45 percent of India’s gross domestic product concentrated around seven major cities, Arif A Siddiqui at Coign Consulting, specializing in supply chain management, expected investment in warehousing to focus on Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai, and New Delhi. Singapore-based logistics company Ascendas-Singbridge has just signed a $600 million deal with Firstspace Realty, based in the south Indian city of Bengaluru, to create 14 million square feet (1.3 million square meters) of industrial warehousing space across six major Indian cities.”Manufacturing, modern retail and the pharma sector were already driving change in Indian warehousing. GST has just fast-tracked the growth rate in logistics,” said Aloke Bhuniya, Chief Executive of Ascendas-Firstspace.He reckoned that GST has boosted the industry’s annual growth rate from 12-15 percent to 20-22 percent, and saw plenty of room for a lot more modernization.Out of the logistics industry’s 980 million square feet (91 million square meters) of captive, agri-based and cold storage warehousing, Bhuniya estimated 85 percent were old godowns and traditional structures.”This represents a huge opportunity for modern warehousing to tap into,” he said.last_img read more

Further, the numerous developments in radionucleotides are anticipated to favor the adoption of solid state cameras and mobile gamma cameras. These findings are presented in a new research study on the global mobile gamma cameras market by Future Market Insights (FMI).Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) is currently the biggest application of gamma cameras given the low cost, large suite of radioisotopes and expanded use cases. According to FMI, however, positron emission tomography (PET) is anticipated to witness the fastest growth in terms of adoption, owing to the greater special resolution and sensitivity brought about by the use of positron emitting radioisotopes that provide more energy, contrast and special resolution.According to FMI analysis, the high costs of PET as compared to SPECT are expected to be negated in the wake of development of high sensitivity and selective tracers. FMI predicts a growth rate of 4.8 percent for the mobile gamma cameras market during the 10-year period from 2018 to 2028. Revenue from the sales of mobile gamma cameras is estimated to reach $75.2 million by the end of 2028, up from $47.2 million in 2018.Being a high-value, low-volume market, technology plays a vital role in the mobile gamma cameras market, where the technologically advanced products are priced at a premium. The development of solid state sensors is slowly replacing the photomultiplier tube and this represents the biggest technological development in the market followed by miniaturization.A notable trend being observed in the market is the shift towards dual-head gamma cameras. Single-head mobile gamma cameras have certain inherent disadvantages such as slow speed and lower density count, leading to the inability to perform different types of tests. This has resulted in an elevated demand for multiple-head cameras. Dual-head cameras increase total counts per stop, resulting in relatively lesser scan time and better image quality, leading to enhanced accuracy in diagnosis.Further, according to FMI, the latest mobile gamma cameras come with newer and better functionalities. Owing to advances in electronic components and software, modern mobile gamma cameras include advanced reconstruction algorithms and periodic updates that help boost scan speeds and image correction parameters. Advanced gamma camera software also facilitates more personalized patient scans by tracking patient activity and performing appropriate scans.The full market intelligence outlook from FMI can be downloaded here.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Radiopharmaceuticals and Tracers | August 02, 2019 ASRT Supports Radiopharmaceutical Reimbursement Bill The American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) announced its support for House Resolution (HR) 3772, a measure… read more News | Computed Tomography (CT) | June 17, 2019 International Working Group Releases New Multiple Myeloma Imaging Guidelines An International Myeloma Working Group (IMWG) has developed the first set of new recommendations in 10 years for… read more News | Radiopharmaceuticals and Tracers | July 26, 2019 NorthStar Medical Radioisotopes Awarded $30 Million by U.S. Department of Energy NorthStar Medical Radioisotopes LLC has been awarded $15 million in a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of… read more Technology | Information Technology | June 20, 2019 DOSIsoft Receives FDA 510(k) Clearance for Planet Onco Dose Software DOSIsoft announced it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market Planet… read more News | Radiopharmaceuticals and Tracers | July 01, 2019 Bracco Imaging Acquires Blue Earth Diagnostics Bracco Imaging S.p.A. has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Blue Earth Diagnostics, a molecular imaging company… read more News | Radiopharmaceuticals and Tracers | July 16, 2019 NorthStar Medical Radioisotopes Completes Construction on Beloit, Wis.

Discover the natural wonders of Sanibel Island

first_img Thursday, April 4, 2019 Tags: Fort Myers, Fort Myers Spotlight 2019, Spotlight Discover the natural wonders of Sanibel Island Share Posted bycenter_img Over the years, Florida holidays have become synonymous with mega theme parks, larger-than-life characters and hair-raising thrill rides. But The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel offer a very different side to the Sunshine State. Famed for its lengthy shell-strewn beaches, vast nature reserves and epic sunsets, Sanibel Island is one of the natural highlights of Southwest Florida’s Gulf Coast.Located 20 miles south of downtown Fort Myers – escape over the three-mile causeway to Sanibel island, a subtropical barrier island with 50 miles of pristine white-sand beaches, 25 miles of multi-use bike paths and recreation trails beside buildings no taller than the tallest palm tree.As one of the world’s top destinations for seashells, Sanibel draws avid collectors from across the globe who flock to its beaches in search of nature’s treasure. If you want to know your alphabet cones from your painted egg cockles, visit the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum, a vast collection of tens of thousands of native Floridian shells including wentletraps, fighting conches and the rare golden olive shell.Another big draw is Sanibel’s abundant wildlife. The J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge is a 6,400-acre nature reserve with the largest mangroves in the U.S. It’s home to more than 250 different species of birdlife and even more between January and April, when thousands of migratory birds flock to the refuge. There’s also a good chance you’ll see some of the state’s rarer wildlife too, such as the burrowing owl and the striking pink roseate spoonbill, Florida’s national bird.Like much of Florida, the turquoise Gulf waters surrounding Sanibel are teeming with marine life. Book a Gulf charter cruise and spot pods of bottlenose dolphins, manatees and flocks of white pelicans or take a guided kayaking excursion through the mangroves of the Estero River and witness yellow-crowned night herons, egrets and cormorants sunbathing in the weeds.With so much to do, it’s worth taking the time to do things right and stay awhile. With an abundance of intimate small inns, Gulf-front resorts and cottages, you will find a property to match any clients’ style of vacationing offering a rare chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.Visit for more information.
