I’ve always been an environmentalist and enjoyed beautifying our waterways no matter where it is. Appreciate all the hard work the biscayne bay foundation has done. And we helped a few times and the first time was on earth day.

Jose, Marlene and their daughter Madison (I call them the crusaders against trash in the everglades). They are a great team with an extremely worthwhile cause ~ our food chain starts with clean water. It effects everyone's lives by way of the fish we eat/the water we drink. If everyone would help the environment like Jose does.. it would be a better world. Jose 's organization Biscayne Bay Foundation is the foundation of what makes America great! We need more people like him in this world.... I salute him and his family for the excellent work they are doing!

Esta organización es muy buena y ayuda mucho al medio ambiente.
Es importante tener limpieza en la bahía y Joey y su equipo trabajan muy fuerte para mantener limpia la bahía y así salvar animales y quitar la basura de la orilla de la bahía. Hay gente que tira basura al agua y deberían saber que ésto no está bien. HAY QUE EDUCAR A LA GENTE QUE TIRA BASURA....Mientras tanto Joey y se grupo de voluntarios sigue limpiando y recogiendo basura....
Gracias Joey....

It is with great pride and without hesitation that I can say that this company is amazing. Biscayne Bay Foundation not only does a great job with the waterways of Florida, but they also do this with incredible heart. I got to take part in a clean up and am thoroughly moved by the sincerity of the team. Cleaning up the waterways is what they do and want to continue doing. I will continue to support their efforts as their contributions are just beginning.

MY company gave 1500 dollars to the Biscayne Bay Foundation and they are an amazing organization unlike other organization. They do exactly what they say they are going to do. My son who lives in South Carolina has been stuggling for years so I like helping people in need. If anyone is looking to donate to a great cause I highly suggest the Biscayne Bay Foundation.
