Advocates came from all over South Florida. Representation from Everglades Coalition (The awesome Cara), The Everglades Foundation, The Sierra Club, The Conservation Alliance of Martin County, The Indian River Keeper, The Audubon Society , Tropical Audubon, Mark Perry, Dawn Shirreffs, Julia Hathaway, Maggy Hurchella, George Jones, Donna Melzer, a kick your butt blonde fisherwoman, and of course our awesome River Warriors of the Indian River Lagoon. Even Me. Even the video girl.
All saying the same thing #buytheland #sendcleanwatersouth

45 speakers. All saying the same thing to a stoned faced board who because of political reasons has no interest in doing this. For us Science has trumped politics. For them politics has trumped Science.
I have only one question. What will South Florida look like if this doesn’t happen? Will these people be held responsible?
