Florida Bay forever: Speaking out for the bay

 

Our Mission

Florida Bay Forever is a grassroots movement dedicated to educating Monroe County citizens about Florida Bay and Everglades National Park, and to call for immediate action on Everglades Restoration and water quality policies as they will most significantly affect change.

 

WHAT WE DO 

Florida Bay Forever Save Our Water is a 501c4 representing Monroe County at the local, state, and federal level on issues related to Everglades Restoration; specifically as it pertains to the health of Florida Bay. The group engages with policymakers, governing boards, and other entities to express the opinion of the community on how to best move forward with Restoration. 

Florida Bay Forever SOW helps the community communicate with policymakers by providing tools for advocacy and guidelines for how to best communicate on a political level. 

Florida Bay Forever is a 501c3. This arm of the organization works to increase awareness of the issues that threaten the Florida Bay. This group helps citizens become more educated and engaged by providing fact-based information pertaining to our vital resource.

 

why act now?

Florida Bay is threatened.  Since 2014, more than 62 square miles of seagrass has died.  High salinity levels are threatening wildlife. The Bay is in desperate need of more clean, fresh water.  We need to speak out today to prevent future sea grass die offs, algae blooms and the decline of our Florida Bay. Don't wait a minute longer - act now to protect Florida Bay.
