1000 Eyes on the Water

Our 1000 Eyes on the Water program is a volunteer-based, community-led, pollution detection and reporting program designed to increase Miami Waterkeeper's ability to monitor the Bay and waterways of South Florida.

Are you passionate about protecting Miami's waterways? Join us in our mission to safeguard these invaluable resources through our "1,000 Eyes on the Water" program.


Have you ever seen something on or near the water that didn't quite look right? Perhaps you wanted to report a potential pollution incident but weren't sure how to describe it, whom to contact, or if it warranted a report. We understand that identifying common pollution issues in South Florida and knowing how to respond can be challenging. That's where our "1,000 Eyes on the Water" program comes in.

Our program empowers you to become a champion for your local waterways by providing you with the skills to observe, document, and report pollution incidents that you may come across during your daily activities. Join the 1,000+ community members who are trained and prepared to report pollution!
