2018 – An Important Year for the Everglades

evergladessunset

For anglers around the world, the Everglades are one of those bucket-list destinations. Nowhere else in the world offers so many unique fishing opportunities in a vibrant and diverse ecosystem. However, the Everglades need your help.

For years, people have talked about how best to “replumb the Everglades.” Restoring the historic water flows will have tremendous benefits for fishing from Lake Okeechobee south and along both the Gulf and Atlantic coasts of Florida. Most anglers have seen the massive algae blooms caused by discharges into the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie Rivers. Fixing these problems is a big job, and we can’t afford any unnecessary delays.

This month, a Senate committee could determine the future of a reservoir project that is critical to restoring fish habitat in the Everglades. We need your help to make sure lawmakers don’t let this opportunity pass them by.

Your Senator holds an important seat on this committee. Please take a moment to send them a note asking for their support of this important project.
