NEW STUDY: Clean water is vital to the economy of Southwest Florida

To address growing concerns around the health and vitality of our waterways, Captains for Clean Water, Conservancy of Southwest Florida, and Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundation enlisted Greene Economics to conduct a thorough analysis of the economic repercussions of degraded water quality.

This pivotal study aims to translate the ecological impact into tangible economic figures, offering a clearer perspective on the stakes involved.

The study also shines light on how good water quality has a positive economic impact and that projects and policies that improve water quality will pay off through a more robust economy.

Nature protects us

Here at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, a simple truth has guided our actions for almost 60 years. It is an idea that serves as the foundation upon which all of our work is based: We protect nature. Nature protects us.
