The Indian River Lagoon is an internationally renowned estuary that supports tremendous biodiversity as well as world-class recreational and commercial fisheries. Every year, the IRL brings $3.7 Billion to the regional economy, providing 15,000 jobs and recreational opportunities for 11 million people. Recent algal “superblooms” in the IRL have contributed to the loss of 47,000 acres of sea grasses as well as hundreds of manatees, dolphins, and pelicans. The ecosystem may be approaching a tipping point from which it may never recover. Worldwide news is covering the death of our estuary. The local economy is at risk as well as the quality of life for the residents who live and work on the IRL. Residents, businesses, and agencies are seeking solutions, things they can do to help restore the estuary.
