ABOUT THE EVERGLADES COALITION
The Everglades Coalition is an alliance of over 60 local, state, and national conservation and environmental organizations dedicated to full restoration of the Greater Everglades Ecosystem, from the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes into Lake Okeechobee, through the "River of Grass," out to Florida Bay and the Keys.
Through consensus, the Everglades Coalition is dedicated to:
Advocating for the restoration, protection and enhancement of the greater Everglades ecosystem
Supporting and providing education and public understanding regarding all aspects of the Everglades ecosystem
Supporting and sponsoring research in the protection, restoration and enhancement of the Everglades ecosystem
Facilitating the coordination of information resources, strategies and efforts among Everglades Coalition members.
The Coalition works in the public arena to inform decision makers on the collective view of the conservation community regarding the greater Everglades ecosystem. Some of the tools used by the Coalition include policy papers, comparisons of proposed policy decisions focused on sound science, and public comments on critical aspects of restoration.
The Everglades Coalition is registered as a non-profit, tax-exempt corporation under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. As such, your donations are not only greatly appreciated, but they are tax-deductible!
