PROTECTING AMERICA'S EVERGLADES

& DRIVING RESTORATION

The Everglades Foundation is the leading science-based nonprofit organization that works to inform government decision-makers with the goal of advancing Everglades restoration projects that maximize environmental and economic benefits. 

WORLD -CLASS SCIENCE 

OUR RENOWNED Ph.D. SCIENTISTS OFFER EXPERTISE

IN THE FOLLOWING AREAS:

  • WATER QUALITY &

    HYDROLOGY

    Water is the key to understanding the Everglades and the manmade environment, and we pride ourselves on having a thorough understanding of how the Everglades works. Through hydrology, we look for solutions to restore the “River of Grass,” which is the source of drinking water for 9 million Floridians.

  • CLIMATE

    CHANGE

    Everglades restoration will help restore the carbon sequestration capacity of the ecosystem, and protect our communities and local economies, which are among the most vulnerable in the country to climate change.

  • EVERGLADES

    ECOLOGY 

    The Everglades supports over 2,000 species of plants and animals, 78 of which are threatened or endangered. Our ecological research seeks to understand how drainage and pollution impact habitats, how restoration projects are improving conditions, and threats posed by climate change. 

  • EVERGLADES

    ECONOMY

    Everglades restoration is a sound investment: Economists have shown a conservative 4-to-1 return on investment in the real estate, tourism, and recreation sectors that are crucial to the vitality of Florida’s economy.
