Leads efforts in the protection and restoration for the Everglades, a 1 million-acre wetlands ecosystem on the tip of Southern Florida.

Why is it important?

The Everglades is a treasure for Americans, but also important for the many species of wildlife that call it home, and the eight million Floridians who depend on it for drinking water. However, while the Everglades once covered nearly three million acres, it’s now a third of its original size and needs continued protection and restoration. Among the Everglades biggest threats are development, nutrient pollution, invasive species, and the rise in sea levels.

How do they do it?

Science, advocacy and education are all deeply rooted in the mission of the Everglades Foundation. The Everglades Foundation's team of doctors conducts research revolving around multiple subjects, like water quality and ecology, to help guide policy and restoration efforts. Meanwhile, advocacy includes collaborating with like-minded organizations, and influencing leaders and policy both in Tallahassee and Washington, D.C. Lastly, the Everglades Literacy Program is the key element of their education efforts, involving a K-12 framework that's in numerous Florida districts with the potential to reach 100,000 students.
