We hope you can join us to support our amazing organization and the hard work we do for conservation and educating our youth!
Florida Water Warriors is a Florida 501c3 non-profit organization operated by dedicated staff and volunteers, with a mission to engage in a spirit of equitable education access by providing knowledge and opportunities to underserved students and community members in the Northeast Coastal Area of Florida.
Our vision is to play a part in the larger picture of conservation by fostering stewardship, and appreciation of our surrounding ecosystem, and emphasizing the individuals’ responsibility to its protection. Florida Water Warriors takes our participants out onto the water and teaches them about conservation through experiential learning. The participants act as researchers, collecting data that we use to generate new insights in our field. All data is shared with NOAA, as well as educators across the state of Florida. Our crew has specialized knowledge and conducts hands-on activities that engage our participants and inspire them to make pro-environmental behavioral changes, through Community Science Tours, Educational Field Trips and Marine Science Summer Camps.
Since our beginning in 2020, we have taken 156 students from the underserved community out on the water for Marine Science Education at no cost! Our goal for this year is to raise $10,000 to support our K-12 Eco-educational programs for the following year, which could bring 800 students out onto the water to our classroom without walls, without having to go through a financial hurdle! Educational equity is one of the most pressing issues in modern society. You can help us tackle the wealth and resources gap that provide obstacles to learning as well as educate future generations on a subject that will dictate the course of their own life, the state of our environment.
