Tell the Legislature: Protect the Everglades!

Sierra Club - Explore, enjoy and protect the planet

Dear Friend,

The Legislature is considering slashing funding for Everglades Restoration. 
Tell them to protect the Everglades.

Take Action!
The state legislature is proposing to cut Everglades restoration funding to just 8% of its 2007 funding level.  Florida's Everglades are more than a national park or a tourist attraction. They're a vital piece of Florida's infrastructure. The Everglades provide fresh water for more than six million people. Maintaining and restoring the Everglades has been a priority for our state and many governors of both parties. Even our business leaders believe that the state should maintain its investment in the Everglades.  Can you write the budget conference committee and tell them to increase the proposed funding levels for Everglades Restoration?

We depend on the Everglades to generate jobs, tourism dollars, and provide the drinking water for millions of people. We can't afford to stop investing in this vital piece of infrastructure. Send a message to the conference committee members and tell them to invest in our Everglades.
Our state legislators need to hear from you. They need to hear that we care about the Everglades and that we want them protected.  Send a message to the budget conference committee and tell them to protect our Everglades.

Thank you for all you do for the environment.

Sincerely,

Jonathan Ullman
