Miami Waterkeeper’s mission is to defend, protect, and preserve South Florida’s watershed through citizen engagement and community action rooted in sound science and research. As a partner in the Biscayne Bay Habitat Focus Area, Miami Waterkeeper collaborates with a variety of stakeholders including researchers, community leaders, and Bay-users to address land-based sources of nutrient pollution, stormwater runoff, and algae blooms in Biscayne Bay. By bringing socioeconomic studies and spatial models together with citizen engagement and education, Miami Waterkeeper works to ensure a healthy Bay for communities and ecosystems.
Partnerships are a critical component of the Habitat Focus Area approach. Partners provide technical and on the ground support in the Focus Areas to advance our shared goals of improving habitat conditions for fish and coastal communities.
