Funds needed for a good cause - Protecting the Gulf, bays, rivers, wildlife, and our wetlands.





Distinguished Speaker, Jack Emerson Davis

an author and professor of history


Discussing his recent book -The Gulf: The Making of an American Sea

  We are Waterkeepers - Our mission is to protect our bays, our rivers, our estuaries and our wetlands. Making a difference!

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, and water polluters. We need your help to fund this fight.

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


Filed and prevailed in major Clean Water Act lawsuits against St Petersburg, Gulfport and Sarasota County for dumping sewage into our coastal waterways. All cases were victories for the environment and for the communities suffering from failing sewage systems.  The cases settled, forcing major improvements to sewage collection and treatment systems to prevent future sewage discharges to our bay waters, improved oversight and funding for environmental improvement projects.


Sarasota County was violating the waters flowing into Sarasota Bay without the County Commissioners' knowledge. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) was aware of the problems for years, but did next to nothing in the face of increasing legal violations and environmental harm. After receiving a notice of the federal clean water act Sarasota County settled, another victory for clean water.


We've continued to monitor and when needed, challenge development projects that seek to skirt environmental laws and harm local waterways.
