Environment Florida Research & Policy Center
Clean water to drink and clean air to breathe; healthy wetlands, lakes and rivers that are safe for swimming and fishing; protected open spaces; clean sources of energy that don’t pollute and never run out — all this should be the heritage we leave to future generations. Our staff research the issues, educate the public, and win tangible results.
Investigating problems and crafting solutions
Doing the research. Extreme Weather Extreme weather events lead to loss of life and billions of dollars in economic damage. What’s more, scientists predict that global warming could increase the frequency of such events in the future. Our report, "Global Warming and Extreme Weather," shined a light on what could become "the new normal," if we fail to avert the worst effects of global warming.
Educating the public and making our voices heard.
Preserving the Everglades. In 2010, Environment Florida fended off a proposal to build a 21-acre "corporate park" over protected wetlands bordering the Everglades in Broward County. We also helped win federal funding for restoration projects in Picayune Strand and the Tamiami Trail.
Environment Florida Research & Policy Center would like to thank the Sapelo Foundation for supporting our work in 2011.
