Save Florida's Springs

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

Florida’s springs are not eternal – they are being degraded in a variety of ways due to the state’s increasing human population. The magnificent artesian springs in Florida are displaying alarming changes, including reductions in water flow, elevated nutrient concentrations, reductions in natural aquatic vegetation and fish, and increasing populations of filamentous algae. Mother Nature is providing a wake-up call to human society that it is time to clean up our act.

Several stressors are changing our springs. Reduced groundwater levels and increasing nitrate nitrogen concentrations are both indirect effects of human land use decisions. Altered plant and wildlife communities often result from excessive human recreation and aquatic plant management activities. These stresses are obvious to even the most casual observer of springs.
