Help stop proposed mine
A long-time potato farm in the Density Reduction Groundwater Resource (DGRG) area in Lee County is seeking to become a mining operation. The Troyer Brothers Mine proposal involves the construction and excavation of a new limestone mine, as well as associated rock processing and ancillary operations. In order to do this, Troyer has applied for a 404 Clean Water Act permit from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP).
One last chance to defeat sb2508
Governor DeSantis will soon be presented with SB 2508 – Environmental Resources, where he will have the opportunity to either sign it into law, allow it to become law without his signature, or veto it. We are asking the Governor, who has made Everglades restoration and water quality a priority, to VETO this harmful bill which undermines the new Lake Okeechobee System Operations Manual (LOSOM) and natural resource protections we have all been working so diligently to implement.
Everglades restoration efforts in jeopardy
As the Florida Legislature passes the halfway mark for the 2022 Session, an egregious bill targeting the protection of Florida’s water resources has emerged and is swiftly moving through the Senate. This is one of the most concerning bills the Conservancy has ever seen in regards to reversing efforts to protect coastal waters.
It must be stopped.
Protect the Panther Refuge
There are two important major corridors used by wildlife, especially large mammals such as the Florida panther. The proposed Bellmar development threatens to encroach on and significantly reduce the viability of one of these corridors – the Camp Keais Strand.
Bellmar would add 5,000 new residents only about one mile away from the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge, threatening not only our wildlife, but also our public lands.
