HOW WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE

RESTORATION EFFORTS

Government funding and donations go directly to vacuuming the muck from our waterways, unearthing fresh spring vents, planting seagrass. and rehabilitating our waters. Seagrass cleans the water, absorbs more carbon from the atmosphere than the rainforest and is the primary food source for manatees and other sea life.

PROTECTION EFFORTS

Once seagrass is planted, it must be nurtured and protected. Donations help us continue these efforts as well as Programs such as the Responsible Anchoring initiative and Book, Line and Thinkers to educate the next generation. Learn more about the importance of saving the manatees, the seagrass and our entire ecosystem and how you can help.

“We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.”
