JANUARY 21, 2021, 11A-3P EST - Join the Special Operations Veterans of FORCE BLUE, leading scientists and environmentalists throughout Florida, along with a host of concerned citizens and special guest stars from across the country for an in-depth look at a national treasure in peril - Florida’s Coral Reef. Stretching 350 miles from St. Lucie Inlet in Martin County past Key West to the Dry Tortugas, Florida’s Coral Reef is the ONLY barrier coral reef in the Continental United States. This vitally important ecosystem accounts for over 70,000 jobs and is directly responsible for bringing in $6.3 billion in revenue to the state and to our nation. Yet in just the last few decades, Florida’s Coral Reef has lost an estimated 90% of its coral cover and, without unprecedented action being taken, could well disappear in our lifetime. If you care about the future of this vitally important, critically threatened ecosystem, please join us for this historic event.  Event Flyer
