Un-bill-ieveable Boat Patrol Rescue! Ransom Everglades Students Help Injured Pelican

IMG_3445.jpg

On Sunday, March 3, 2019, Miami Waterkeeper and Ransom Everglades School conducted a monthly Boat Patrol. The patrol traveled up the Gables Waterway while our Miami Waterkeeper, Rachel Silverstein, discussed the importance of living shorelines with students. Living shorelines provide important wildlife habitat and also build our waterfront's resilience to storm surge and sea level rise. Students practiced identifying different types of shorelines, including seawalls, rip rap, rock, and mangroves. Our diligent students also kept a keen eye out for marine debris on the water, being sure to pick up balloons from mangrove roots, as well as balls and bottles drifting with the current.

City of Miami Will No Longer Use Round Up!

This morning, February 28th, the Miami Waterkeeper team provided comments at City Hall in support of a City of Miami resolution that would ban the use of herbicides containing the ingredient glyphosate. In the last year, the City of Miami used almost 5,000 gallons of herbicide containing glyphosate on city property. To address this problem, Commissioner Ken Russell sponsored a resolution that would make it City policy to use more environmentally friendly alternatives. 


FPL’s troubled cooling canals are about to get a new permit. Some say that’s a problem.
