Legal Advocacy updates, Shop for a Cause, and more!

Delivered: March 2017

We’ve had a busy March!

  • Our supporters (like you!) submitted over 10,000 comments asking for stronger reef protections in the Port Everglades expansion project.
  • We’ve exposed the Army Corps for distributing “alternative facts” to the public in both Port Miami and Port Everglades.
  • We’ve helped get the ball rolling on a plastic grocery bag ban in Coral Gables to reduce marine debris.
  • And we got to hang out with Phillippe Cousteau, Jr. on World Water Day by collecting water quality samples with local schools at the Biscayne Nature Center!

Dredging Déjà vu

Miami’s reefs are in dire need of protection from being dredged again – AGAIN! Yes, that’s right, we’re as shocked as you are.

We recently announced that our efforts secured the restoration of 10,000 threatened corals following the PortMiami Dredging – a huge victory for our reefs.

But, what we didn’t know was that the Corps didn’t dredge deeply enough the first time around and they’re coming back for more. That’s right, the Port of Miami will be dredged AGAIN. We can’t allow this to happen and let the same mistakes threaten our reefs.
