#ThrowbackThursday:
On display at the Boynton Beach City Library are 34 black and white, sepia, and hand-tinted images from 1922 taken by photographer A. Romyn Pierson III.
.
.

The images — named the Cocoanut Dreams exhibit — show what Ocean Ridge, Manalapan, Hypoluxo Island, Lantana and Lake Worth looked like decades ago.
.
.

The photos will be on display at the library, 208 S. Seacrest Blvd., through Sept. 14. The public is invited to attend a reception for the exhibit June 7 from 5:30-7 p.m. Attendees will hear the stories behind the images, and will have a chance to win a free sprouted coconut.​

Irwin, the Palm Beach Zoo's male red kangaroo, passed away yesterday following a battle with skin cancer. .
.

Born in June 2004 at Palm Beach Zoo, Irwin, who was almost 13 years old, was part of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) Species Survival Plan® (SSP) for red kangaroos. The Zoo has housed kangaroos, many of them geriatric since 1995. Irwin represented the last of his species at the Zoo.
.
.
"The animals are part of our family, and a loss is never easy,” said Amy Anderson, the Zoo’s associate curator. “Zookeepers developed a deep bond with Irwin, and so has the community, he will be missed." (Video from Palm Beach Zoo)

Meet Fiona, the newest resident of the Palm Beach Zoo!
.
.

Fiona is an orphan jaguar found clinging to life more than two years ago in Panama​, after being attacked by hunting dogs in the first week of her life. She was rescued in October 2014 and taken to a wildlife rehabilitation center for most of the past two years.
.
.

Because she was orphaned so early in her life, Fiona would not have been able to survive in the wild on her own, according to a release provided by the zoo.
.
.

Fiona will make her first public appearance Saturday, May 27, when the zoo opens at 9 a.m.​ (Video by Palm Beach Zoo) .

“From Your Eyes Only”
. . .

Just a reminder to enter the "Reflections" photo contest! Each month, as part of the "From your Eyes Only" series, we’ll announce a theme and ask you to post your best photo representing that theme and add a tag we specify. . . .

After the end of the month, the Post’s social media team and / or visual journalists will choose a winner based on the content, creativity, and best representation of that theme. (And it doesn’t necessarily have to be a literal translation of the theme, think figurative too…) .
. . .

The winner receives a gift and re-publication of their winning image, along with info about you and the photo. . . .
May’s theme is “Reflections.” Tag your photo #pbpreflections - this month’s winner will receive a $25 gift card to Amazon. Hurry! Contest ends May 31.
Thanks for entering, and for being a @pbpost follower! . . .

🐢 Celebrate World Turtle Day today! 🐢
.
.
We in Palm Beach County should count ourselves fortunate, as our beaches are host to thousands of sea turtles that nest here each season. 🌊 (Clockwise, from top left: gopher tortoise, green turtles, loggerhead turtle, and newly-hatched leatherback turtle.)
.
.
American Tortoise Rescue, a nonprofit organization established in 1990 for the protection of all species of tortoise and turtle, is sponsoring its 17th annual World Turtle Day, which falls on May 23rd each year. The day was created as an annual observance to help people celebrate and protect turtles and tortoises and their disappearing habitats around the world. 👏 🐢
