Check below for upcoming Florida Water Warriors events!
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 Marine Science Education. Florida Water Warriors provides knowledge and opportunities to underserved students and community members in the Northeast Coastal Area of Florida. Through Marine Science Field Experiences, our educators teach and inspire students and families to make pro-environmental behavioral changes in order to protect and conserve our waterways.
Our vision is to play a part in the larger picture of conservation by fostering stewardship, appreciation of our surrounding ecosystem, and emphasizing the individuals’ responsibility to its protection. Florida Water Warriors takes students out onto the water and teaches them about conservation through experiential learning. The participants act as researchers, collecting water quality data that is used to generate new insights in the Marine Science field. All water quality & wildlife data is shared with the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration, as well as scientists across the state of Florida.
Since the Water Warrior’s beginning in 2020, we have provided 212 students from the underserved community with Marine Science Education at no cost. The goal for this year is to raise $10,000 to support our K-12 Eco-educational program for the following year, which would provide 1,000 students with Marine Science education. You can help us tackle the wealth and resources gap that cause obstacles in educating future generations. Together, we can educate the upcoming youth on the state of our environment and work towards creating a well-balanced and protected ecosystem.
