Fighting for Drinkable, Fishable, Swimmable Water
Calusa Waterkeeper is a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection of the Caloosahatchee River & Estuary in Southwest Florida. This includes Lake Okeechobee & Estero Bay, plus the near-shore waterways of Lee County. We strive to achieve this mission through education and promotion of responsible use and enjoyment by all people.
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!

Join us in asking Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to VETO Senate Bill 2508, which despite various amendments still contains concerning elements harmful to Lake Okeechobee management and several state-wide water quality issues.
Four South Florida environmental nonprofits sent Gov. Ron DeSantis a letter Wednesday urging him to veto a controversial Lake Okeechobee water supply bill. The governor can sign or veto the bill, but if he does nothing, it becomes law on July 1.
John Cassani brings us up to speed on the latest water quality issues in our region including the monitoring of tapegrass renewal exclosures and the efforts of local organizations to restore this important marine vegetation in the upper estuary of the Caloosahatchee.
