UW-F Supports Gov. Scott's Everglades Funding Plan



Action Alert from United Waterfowlers-Florida



Just a few weeks ago, Governor Rick Scott promised and proposed a plan that included $40 million in funding for the ongoing restoration of the Everglades ecosystem in this year's budget.

That plan is in jeopardy...

Duck hunters, anglers and other sportsmen understand the importance of the Everglades System to Florida and the importance of clean water.

The Everglades is the watershed and recharge area that provides the water supply for South Florida... one out of every three Florida citizens relies on the Everglades for their water supply.

A large network of guides, sportsmen and outdoors business interests rely on the Everglades for their livelihood.  In-state and out-of-state sportsmen and tourists spend big bucks to visit this unique place that exists in only one place on earth.

We owe it to our children, and to their children to do the right thing now!

"The Everglades are a national treasure, an economic engine, a job creator and the future of Florida depends on its health..."

Improvements are required throughout the system, improvements needed to hold water and filter it before reaching the Everglades.  And restoration is required to save the native tree islands and other habitats that still exist in the Everglades.

Clean water is vital to all Floridians now and in the future.  We must repair what man has changed to save our heritage and economy.
