ABOUT “ISLAND FEVER”
“Every day is a reminder to protect and preserve this diverse natural environment we are lucky to call home,” says Christina. “We are surrounded by beautiful warm waters, endless blue skies, white puffy afternoon clouds, and tropical flora and fauna.” Christina created her “Island Fever” manatee to reflect this beauty and to remind us to take special care of it.
