Fighting for Drinkable, Fishable, Swimmable Water
Thank you for all that you’re doing to improve our water quality and to educate us on changes we ourselves can make to help.
I have come to value the work of the Calusa Waterkeeper and its important voice in our community advocating for cleaner water. Keep up with the good work!
We appreciate all that you do for our community and water quality. Great Job! Thank you, The Jensens.
Thank you Calusa Waterkeeper and John Cassani for all you do to educate the public about the water quality crisis we are facing in SWFL.
Thanks to CWK for relentlessly using science and public outreach to fight for clean water in SW Florida! We all benefit.
I have learned so much as a volunteer Ranger with Calusa Waterkeeper. Excited to continue!

Red Tide and Blue-Green Algae Prompt Environmental Groups to ask Gov. DeSantis for State of Emergency
Several environmental groups have asked Gov. Ron DeSantis to declare a state of emergency for communities impacted by what appears to be a growing toxic blue-green algae outbreak in the Lake Okeechobee system and a red tide in the Gulf of Mexico.
With the 2021 Legislative Session now closed, Calusa Waterkeeper is urging our supporters and followers to contact the Governor to veto the following bills that have a strong nexus to water, unabated development and the negative impacts that result.
State health officials released a public advisory for the upper portion of the Caloosahatchee estuary, saying the public should not swim there or touch the water. The Florida Department of Health in Lee County says it found blue-green algae toxins in the waters surrounding W.P. Franklin Lock.
