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 and provide resources to further knowledge and actions available.

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. This isn’t about the next event, this is about new regulations for south florida water management. We want accountability for clean water, we want effective EPA standards for the canals to prevent degradation of water quality. 

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.

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. 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. 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
