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 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. 

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.

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube for news, updates, and ways to spread the word.

The 2018 #redtide event was massive in scale and scope of destruction. While things may have tapered off near Thanksgiving, the situation persists into 2019. Here are some facts to recap the 2018 event and to prepare you for what lies ahead this year.

Gorski said they’ve been asked if 16,000 redfish will make a difference.

“The answer is we don’t know,” he said, “but one redfish is better than none. It’s one redfish at a time, and it’s a step in the right direction.” #redtide

The Naples City Council plans to reinstate a fertilizer blackout period 2 yrs after striking it from city's fertilizer ordinance in a move that allowed more use of nutrients that exacerbate #redtide like the one that plagued west coast of FL last year.

State Sen. Debbie Mayfield and state Rep. Holly Raschein filed “the Clean Waterways Act” which, they insist, is “a comprehensive statewide initiative to address imperative infrastructure needs that are contributing to pollution in FL waters.” https://t.co/YqzXDVxkU8

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
