Social Media Release

This is a class assignment

On Sunday November 5, Florida Marine Conservation Awareness Group (FMCAG) will host its first Family Volunteer Day at the Starfish Marina to help preserve the Indian River Lagoon. Families of all ages are welcome and can sign-up now on www.fmcag/volunteer/florida.com until Oct. 30. The even begins at 9 a.m. and lunch will be provided by FMCAG.

Background

Pollution from leaky residential septic tanks and Lake Okeechobee drainage is causing unsuitable swimming conditions and loss of lagoon biodiversity. The polluted waters foster algal blooms that suffocate the water of oxygen and shield sea grass from sunlight. The lagoon can no longer support many marine species and is not healthy to swim in. FMCAG is looking for volunteers to help restore the lagoon to its natural beauty.

Quotes

“We want local families to get involved in saving the lagoon and the marine life who depend on it for survival,” said Krauskopf. “After all, this affects everyone in the area whether they care or not.”

“It’s about time we do something to help. I hope one day it’s safe enough for my grand kids to swim in like I did when I was a kid,” said community member Jim Forrester.
