Once a respected barrier against angry waters - Florida's Mangroves have been replaced by hotels, condominums and restaurants. The remaining vegetation is filled with debris and toxic waste with little hope of long term survival. In a world filled with severe challenges perhaps it's time to re-focus on the basics. Starting soon (Spring 2018) 'Bigwater Rescue' will allocate time and resources to various mangrove outposts located on Florida's west coast (Ft. Meyers to Cedar Key). Once per month trash and debris collection will be documented with data posted on multiple sites.
