THE STORY:

Please support my effort to help MWK create a new, JUNIOR WATERKEEPERS ambassador program for students in South Florida!

Miami Waterkeeper (MWK) is a Miami-based 501(c)3 non-profit organization that advocates for Biscayne Bay, its watershed, and its wildlife. Its goal is to educate citizens about the vital role of Biscayne Bay in Miami’s clean-water economy, and to empower them to take an active role in our community’s decision-making. We hope to ensure a clean and vibrant Biscayne Bay and coastal culture for generations to come.

Launched in 2011, MWK is the first Waterkeeper in South Florida and is the only advocacy organization solely dedicated to protecting Biscayne Bay and its surrounding watershed. In the few years since our founding, MWK has become a leading advocate for Biscayne Bay and a powerful voice for sustainable development. We achieve our goals through citizen-driven education, community outreach and legal advocacy programs.

I am hoping to help MWK create a new, JUNIOR WATERKEEPERS ambassador program for high school students in South Florida. Junior Waterkeepers will be students who will train other students as environmental educators and will organize events involving students and their families in ecosystem restoration. We will design a Bay-related curriculum for Junior Waterkeepers to implement in schools across the watershed, in addition to organizing events to participate in hands-on work on the water (i.e. cleanups, restoration, fish counts etc.) This program will foster the next generation of environmental stewards to protect Biscayne Bay and learn ways to save and protect our plant's vital natural resources.

To institute the program, funding is needed. Please help me to support this rewarding educational endeavor, which will benefit our local community and serve to educate our youth about the importance of protecting our local waters!

Please see the Miami Waterkeeper website for more information about the great work they are doing to preserve our Bay and watershed: http://miamiwaterkeeper.org/
