Jimmy Buffett performing at the 25th Anniversary of The Everglades Foundation, 2018
The Everglades Foundation Board and Staff extend our heartfelt sympathy on the passing of our beloved Board member, Jimmy Buffett.
In addition to his well-known singing, songwriting and business endeavors, Jimmy was passionate about the Everglades and Florida’s magnificent waterways.
Since joining the Foundation’s Board in 2005, Jimmy has contributed immeasurably to our mission to restore and protect America’s Everglades. In addition to contributing to Florida Bay Forever, the book marking the Foundation’s 20th anniversary, Jimmy and his daughter, Savannah, have shared their time and love for Florida’s waters by incorporating the importance of our mission in music.
Jimmy Buffett has left an indelible mark on The Everglades Foundation. His talent and adoration for the Everglades and Florida’s way of life will remain unmatched. Our thoughts are with the Buffett family, and we will continue to focus on restoring the flow of clean freshwater through the Everglades and into Florida Bay as Jimmy so deeply valued.
