I was staying at Pointe Santo in January of 2005. I woke up early one morning, went out in front of the resort and this is what was waiting. The tide was extremely low, and there were so many live horse conchs; it was unbelievable. I actually stayed busier trying to take the conchs back out to the water, than I did picking up shells. There were a lot of other people out grabbing shells, but none of them seemed to worry about the live ones that were dying. Very sad.
