He states, rather emphatically, that NMPGV is financially backed by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. There is not an ounce of truth to this statement.

This is a story I wrote a several years ago when we had a home on the beach in Kino Bay, Mexico. Tis crab season, so I thought I would share it with you…

I did not go running down the beach with a net trying to catch crabs. Crabs have pincers, pincers that can sever a finger (I saw that on Animal Planet).
