Dec 7, 2023 | Events, In the News

Cape Coral Friends of Wildlife was proud to host a special event with local author and historian Robert N. Macomber at Rotary Park on the evening of December 6, 2023.

We had a fantastic turnout of over 65 attendees who shared a delightful evening listening to Mr. Macomber’s presentation on “The President and the Devilfish,” a story of how the most famous conservationist in U.S. Presidential history, Theodore Roosevelt, visited the islands of Southwest Florida in 1917 on an expedition to obtain a large Devilfish (Giant Coastal Manta Ray) for the Smithsonian Institution.
