Captains For Clean Water is a grassroots 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that fights to restore and protect our water resources.
In 2016, they started as a couple fishing guides that had "had enough" of Florida 's poor water management practices devastating the estuaries Floridians rely on. Mismanagement has led to polluted freshwater from Lake Okeechobee being dumped into the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie Rivers which causes toxic algae blooms, seagrass die-offs and massive fish kills. This issue also affects the Everglades and Florida Bay as they are starved of the natural freshwater flow they rely on.
The solution to these problems is known, but has been delayed for decades due to lack of political will and public awareness. Captains for Clean Water is dedicated to making sure that changes. They work to advance science-based solutions through efforts focused on awareness and education, empowering people to speak up for our water quality and hold elected officials accountable. Together, they have united the outdoor industry, environmental groups, business community and concerned citizens around these important issues, and are seeing more people than ever get involved in the fight for clean water. As a result, progress is happening at a record pace.
