Fighting for Clean Water & Healthy Habitats in Florida

Clean water and healthy habitats are vital to our economy, livelihoods, fisheries, and way of life. But they’re under increasing threat from altered freshwater flows, failing and outdated wastewater infrastructure, pharmaceutical contaminants, and glyphosate pollution.

As the Florida Boat tours the Sunshine State, we’ll highlight our ongoing work to address these threats through science-based restoration, conservation, and advocacy.

We must continue building on the great progress that has been made. By raising our voices together, we will

Florida Keys Water Quality & Fishery Health

The fragility of the Florida Keys ecosystem places this region at the forefront of Florida’s water quality crisis. BTT continues to fight for clean water and healthy fisheries in the Keys by researching the cause of the spinning fish phenomenon, advocating for modern wastewater infrastructure to keep contaminants like pharmaceuticals out of Keys waterways, and assessing the health of Keys permit and bonefish fisheries to inform management and conservation.

Rookery Bay Habitat Restoration

These vast mangrove wetlands provides nursery habitat for juvenile tarpon, snook, other sport fish and their prey. The next generation need viable mangrove and marshland habitat to grow into healthy adult fish. Through two restoration projects, BTT and partners will restore freshwater flow to more than 1,000 acres of habitat to sustain these fisheries.

Saving the Everglades

The restoration of the Everglades is the largest conservation project in human history. Support is broad, progress has been monumental, and federal and state funding continues to reach historic levels. But this effort is a marathon, not a sprint. It took less than a century for human development to completely disrupt the natural flow of freshwater to the ‘River of Grass.’ It will take decades more of collaborative effort and unwavering commitment to save America’s Everglades. You can help by supporting BTT.

Biscayne Bay Water Quality

Close proximity to densely populated urban areas means Biscayne Bay is constantly inundated with pollutants, which lead to poor water quality, seagrass die-offs, and fish kills. BTT actively supports Miami-Dade county and state projects to improve water quality by modernizing wastewater and stormwater infrastructure.

Indian River Lagoon Protection Program

Too many nutrients are entering the Indian River Lagoon, leading to harmful algal blooms that cause billions of dollars of losses to the local economy. To reduce these nutrients, we must invest in fixing outdated and failing wastewater infrastructure and stormwater treatment systems. We must also reduce fertilizer runoff and the use of herbicides like glyphosate. BTT continues to support the IRL Protection Program that includes many projects that will address these problems.

Charlotte Harbor Water Quality & Habitat Restoration

Once the most productive estuary in Florida for fisheries, Charlotte Harbor is now on the brink of ecological freefall. Pollution is causing harmful algae blooms while increasing human development threatens critical habitat. BTT is advocating for solutions that will improve water quality. We are also working to conserve and restore nursery habitat essential for juvenile tarpon and other sport fish.
