Despite abundant rain, aquifer levels are trending downward Oct 10, 2018 - North Florida is home to a vast underground plumbing system known as the Floridan Aquifer. Comprising more than 100,000 square miles and several thousand feet in thickness, the Floridan Aquifer is like a gigantic, rock-filled bucket.
Red Tide Invades Florida’s East Coast! Oct 8, 2018 - Red Tide is a manatee's enemy because its toxicity could kill us very quickly! You see red tide is an extremely toxic algae bloom that forms when the water is warm and there are plenty of nutrients for it to live on.

Editorial: Clean energy is becoming cost effective Oct 6, 2018 - That's far more than the subsidies provided for renewable energy like solar and wind; in terms of tax breaks, fossil fuel subsidies outpace renewable subsidies by 7 to 1. It all comes down to politics.
Red tide reported moving into area Oct 3, 2018 - The FWC releases statewide red tide reports on Wednesdays and Fridays between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. But this week prior to Wednesday's report, some people in Destin and South Walton were saying they didn't need the official report to know there is a problem.

Red Tide bloom now touching all three of Florida's coasts Oct 1, 2018 - The bloom has now touched all three of the state's coasts, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Six more manatees found dead, red tide the suspect Oct 1, 2018 - The death toll for marine life continues to rise as a toxic red tide bloom stretches along more than 100 miles of Florida's southwestern coast. Ride tide is the suspected culprit of six more manatee deaths in Sarasota County over the weekend.
Wildlife Recovery...Not So Simple Sep 27, 2018 - The red tide is a naturally occurring phenomenon worldwide and the bloom in our area has been around since last October. It is still here but hopes are that it will subside as cooler weather, and cooler water, arrives.

Sick manatee found near St. Armands Circle Sep 19, 2018 - A Sarasota Marine Patrol Officer helped Mote Marine Laboratory and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservations Commission with a sick manatee on Wednesday. The manatee was found near a bridge on South Boulevard of the Presidents near St. Armands Circle.
Editorial: Scott must answer for environmental malpractice Sep 16, 2018 - With a horrific red tide killing marine life and tourism on Florida's southwest coast, and with toxic green algae bringing misery to the Treasure Coast and Fort Myers area on a now-annual basis, it's understandable that Gov. Rick Scott would want to run away from his environmental record.
