What can you do to reduce pollution?
South Florida beaches have been suffering from chronic closures this summer due to the presence of a fecal indicator bacteria: Enterococcus (the same bacteria found in human and animal waste)! This bacteria can be harmful to human health, making it dangerous to swim in or fish from the water. Beaches are a defining feature of our community and the local economy worth billions in tourism and real estate every year. This is why we must protect these resources!
