Restore Florida Bay Now!
Florida Bay is one of the most productive ecosystems in the world. The bay has been heavily impacted by alterations to the Everglades, which has resulted in a 60 percent reduction in historic water flows.Audubon’s Everglades Science Center, established in the Florida Keys in 1938, focuses on protecting this ecological treasure. Our science team researches water quality impacts, reductions in game fish, and a dramatic decline of Roseate Spoonbills, an indicator species for the greater Everglades system. They have worked for decades assessing the damages of reduced natural water flows and other environmental impacts to the bay. Our science has been used as the basis for major Everglades restoration decisions.Please help us apply our leading edge scientific research at a time it is needed most and make a donation today.
