What's the meaning behind the Miami Waterkeeper logo?
The outline of the circle in our logo is the outline of the Miami Circle, which is a Tequesta archaeological site at the mouth of the Miami River and Biscayne Bay. The site is a perfect circle measuring 38 feet across with 24 holes or basins cut into the limestone. The site was discovered in 1998, and is thought to be between 1700-2000 years old. Shell tools, dolphin skulls, turtle shells, and shark teeth were found inside the circle, indicating that this circle is one of the first known interactions of humans and the water in the Miami area. As we focus on both wildlife, water, and the human inhabitants of South Florida, the circle has meaning for Miami Waterkeeper. The animals found inside of our logo are native to Biscayne Bay and the surrounding waters, including some listed on the Endangered Species Act.
