Florida Bay and the Everglades are in trouble and worth saving!

APRIL 10, 2016
FLORIDA BAY OUTFITTERS • KEY LARGO • MILE MARKER 103.3

We are looking for 50 kids to join us on a charity paddle on beautiful Florida Bay to raise much needed funds to aide in the restoration and preservation of the Everglades. Each child is expected to raise $200.00 in pledges. Goody bags, snacks, water and medals will be provided to all participants. Kayaks and paddle boards are being generously donated by Florida Bay Outfitters.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

In the words of Marjory Stoneman Douglas, who helped preserve this land: “There are no other Everglades in the world.”  But part of the reason we’re here is because climate change is threatening this treasure and the communities that depend on it, which includes almost all of south Florida.  And if we don’t act, there may not be an Everglades as we know it.

Florida Bay is a one of a kind world class fishing destination – restoring clean, freshwater flow into the bay from the Everglades is a top priority for protecting South Florida’s and particularly the Florida Keys’ fishing and tourism economy. The Everglades Foundation urges completion of restoration projects that reconnect natural water flow to this important habitat before it’s too late.

To be clear, climate change is a true 800 pound gorilla in the room. The effects of global warming threaten global environmental upheaval over the coming century. But for South Florida and the Everglades, it could be our death knell if urgent action is not taken.
