Great organization that cares about the community. The tireless effort they put in projects is making a difference in Escambia County
This organization is tirelessly working to improve Pensacola, FL's number one impaired water body. In sections they clean it. It shall surely be restored one day. Emerald Coastkeeper also works on illicit discharges. They are awesome.
Laurie Murphy and Emerald Coastkeepers have taken on the huge task of rehabilitating Carpenter Creek, one of Pensacola's longest neglected and most abused waterways. It is a big job and a long-term commitment, but, as a volunteer who has worked at every clean up we have held to date, I can say that we are determined to see it through, and we will keep working at it until it has been restored to it's natural beauty, for the people of Pensacola and Escambia county.
Managing vacation rentals in Pensacola Beach on Santa Rosa Island, surrounded by the beautiful waters of the Gulf, Bay, and intercostal is my livelihood. Our National Seashores are ranked among the highest in the country.
However, Escambia County, in which I live has the highest ranking polluted drinking water in the state of Florida. I had to do something. Citizens and my guest are entitled to clean drinking, fishing, and swimming water. Becoming a member and supporting an organization that is has the means and courage to fight for our rights was what I decided to do.
Please join me in supporting Emerald Coastkeeper.
Coastkeeper Laurie Murphy responds quickly and thoroughly to citizen concerns and complaints regarding water issues. I called Laurie to report tarballs found on Pensacola Beach and she was there within an hour to get samples. She also works closely with local officials to get problems resolved as quickly as possible. Great organization!
This organization is working hard to clean up our water on the gulf coast. They go after companies polluting our waters so we can all have clean water to drink, swim and fish in. Thanks Emerald Coastkeepers. Your organization is doing a great job and my family appreciate it!
