Florida T-Shirt to Support Captains for Clean Water
Our wonderful Authentic Florida website masthead was designed by artist Brendan Coudal of Nokomis, Florida (Brendan Coudal Art). We adore it … and also all of his other art/products as well. Recently, Brendan has been so frustrated by the horrific red tide bloom that he put his angry energy into something productive … he created a new Florida T-Shirt design that celebrates what we all love most about Florida’s Gulf Coast (i.e., turtles, dolphins, manatees, game fish, and also more).

Brendan is also donating a portion of the proceeds to a wonderful non-profit organization called Captains for Clean Water.
Captains for Clean Water is a grassroots 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that advocates for the elimination of harmful, large-scale Lake Okeechobee discharges into the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie River Estuaries by restoring the natural flow of Lake Okeechobee water south into the Everglades and also the Florida Bay. Restoring the natural southern flow of Lake Okeechobee water is essential to the survival of our estuaries, the health of the Everglades, and also the long-term viability of South Florida’s largest drinking water source (the Biscayne Aquifer).
Captains for Clean Water started out as a group of fishing guides from Fort Myers, FL. They “had enough” of Florida’s poor water management practices. They have witnessed the long-term decline of estuaries across south Florida. They’ve also seen the acceleration of that decline over just the last ten years. Inexplicably, there are no solutions to this problem. Overall, that is simply not acceptable to us.
Given the destruction they have seen firsthand, they believe if everyone knew what we knew, this problem would have been fixed already.
CAPTAINS FOR CLEAN WATER’S MISSION: ADVANCING EDUCATION, AWARENESS, AND SCIENTIFICALLY SUPPORTED SOLUTIONS TO RESTORE AND ALSO PROTECT MARINE ECOSYSTEMS AND OUR WAY OF LIFE FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS.
- EDUCATES on the issues facing Florida’s estuaries and also Everglades.
- UNITES stakeholders by finding common ground to fight for clean water.
- ADVOCATES for long-term, science-based solutions to the man-made water crisis in South Florida.
