EcoMyths: Saving The Florida Everglades

Fertilizer pollution threatens our fresh water and in Florida, the problem is especially urgent, as it’s destroying inland and marine ecosystems, along with sources of drinking water. 

For our monthly EcoMyths segment, we explore why restoring the Florida Everglades is essential for preventing catastrophic shifts in availability of fresh, clean drinking water and preventing flooding. Kate Sackman of the EcoMyths Alliance and Evelyn Gaiser, professor of biological sciences at Florida International University explain why conservation is not only vital for Florida, but for all of us.
