Funds needed for a good cause - Protecting our Bay


  We legally challenge developers  who violate rules that protect our bay, our estuaries and our wetlands

Our battle to protect our quality of life needs funding. We are fighting developers that make millions of dollars in profit by destroying our environment. We need your help to fund this fight.

This is where our money has been spent and where we need funds in the future:


Challenged Longbr Pointe Development plans for marina and destruction of Sarasota Bay and mangroves. Filed challenges to SWFMD and FDEP permits.


Submitted comments on proposed Longbar Pointe mitigation bank being used as a ploy to destroy wetlands, sea grasses and mangroves in Sarasota Bay; an area known as the "Kitchen". 


Challenged developer Pat Neal's permit to dredge mangroves and wetlands - sucessfully obtained a recommended order to deny permit - Neal appealed and we continue the fight to protect our environment. Our appeal will be heard March 9th.


Filed suit against the City of Bradenton for not following their development rules and permitting wetlands to be destroyed for houses.


Filed notice of violation to Army Corp of Engineers for  developer illegally dredging and filling wetlands, and sending comments oposing any permit to dredge high quality wetlands on Perico Island.
