We have a bold, modern plan to

Help Florida Heal

Start Here Daily Update

OUR MISSION

Help Florida Heal is a nonpartisan group of Florida citizens demanding that our politicians take action to help Florida heal from the red tide and green algae poisoning our state. 

The political system has failed and Lake Okeechobee is dying. 

Runoff has killed all of the sea grass south of the St Lucie to Miami, and is killing the Caloosahatche, Charlotte Harbour and feeding red tide. 

The only solution is a bottom up wave of all 12,000,000 voters demanding our leaders support a clean water agenda. If we fail Florida, our water, our sea life, our way of life – they all die.

Each one of us can make a difference. Together we make change.

"If the area of low oxygen is extensive, such as a whole lake or many kilometres of a river system, fish and other animals may not be able to escape to more suitable oxygen levels, and major fish deaths typically occur." #themoreyouknow #greenalgae

HELP SAVE FLORIDA

Florida has experienced two straight months of red tide. Hundreds of thousands of animals killed. Turtles, manatees, porpoises, and a whale shark, all dead from the red and green algae poisoning the water.  Become a clean water voter.  Demand that your candidate support clean water settings.

THE ECOLOGICAL INTERVENTION

So what can be done? Lower Lake Okeechobee to 9ft. The lake then will become a wetland, grasses will grow and she will begin to heal. The lake will be capable of handling big rain events. Stop spraying Roundup on the lake! Tell your candidate you’re a clean water voter.

The River of grass

We need your help to spread the word. It’s easy to feel outmanned by corporations and special interests. PLEASE share the video and ask your friends to do the same. WE HAVE A PLAN. We need a river of grass to run south to the Everglades, cleaning the water of the nutrients feeding the red tide and algae blooms poisoning our state.

 

BOLD NEW PLAN

We have a bold new plan and it means WORKING TOGETHER to create change, to make our voices heard. PLEASE share the video and ask your friends to do the same. The elections are over, Florida’s voters have a new Senator, Governor, and Commissioner of Agriculture. Can they reverse the course of history and return our River of Grass to the Everglades

ARE YOU A CLEAN WATER VOTER?

CLEAN WATER VOTERS …

✓ Believe in the natural slow flow of water to the sea.

✓ Want to restore Lake Okeechobee to a shallow wetland.

✓ Will not stand for contaminated water from industrial mining and toxic waste dumping.

✓ Are fed up with water districts throughout the state as they pass the issue downstream with an “It’s not our problem” attitude.

✓Advocate for frequent water testing, accurate and timely water reports, and aggressive action to identify and prevent contamination.

Florida’s plumbing is broken. We need to stop dumping runoff into our rivers. The resulting red tide and green algae blooms are suffocating our coastline, destroying livelihoods, and killing marine life by the thousands.
