WHO WE ARE

Captains For Clean Water is a Grassroots Nonprofit Organization Advocating for Clean Water & Healthy Estuaries Across South Florida.

Captains For Clean Water started out as a group of fishing guides that “had enough” of Florida’s poor water management practices. Given the destruction seen firsthand, we were convinced that if everyone knew what we knew, the problem would have been already fixed. We discovered, the solution has been delayed for decades because of a lack of political will and public awareness.

MISSION & WHAT WE’RE DOING

Mission: Advancing Education, Awareness, and Scientifically Supported Solutions to Restore and Protect Marine Ecosystems and Our Way of Life for Future Generations.

What We’re Doing: Captains for Clean Water is Committed to Protecting Florida’s Most Valuable Resource: water. Through Education and Advocacy, We Fight to Ensure Science-Based Solutions to Our Water Quality Issues are Implemented by Our Policymakers.

We believe that if everyone knew about the problems facing Florida’s estuaries and Everglades, it would have been fixed decades ago. Captains For Clean Water is working to raise awareness of water mismanagement in Florida and to advance science-based solutions so our water resources will be healthy for future generations. Everglades restoration provides significant reductions in Lake Okeechobee discharges and provides desperately needed clean, fresh water to Florida Bay. Join the fight!

THE PROBLEM

Florida is Facing a Significant Water Management Crisis.

Our state needs a long-term solution that will allow us to divert and clean the nutrient-laden fresh water currently killing estuaries on the East and West coasts, while not permitting high Lake Okeechobee levels to jeopardize the lives of those south of the lake. We need a solution to restore the natural sheet flow and provide much-needed, clean, fresh water to the Everglades, the South Florida aquifer and Florida Bay.

This solution must keep Floridians safe, while at the same time protecting the health of our marine ecosystems which are vital to our economy and way of life. We need immediate action on a long-term solution that will protect ALL Floridians.
