Uncertain future for Apalachicola, Ocklawaha, Shark River Slough

Restoration of three Florida waterways that fed some of the most prolific big game fisheries on the planet has been debated, fought over, and delayed by courts, politics, cities, and agriculture.

As world-renowned gems and epitomizing the natural landscapes of their Florida regions, the Apalachicola, Ocklawaha, and Shark River Slough have been plundered of their natural abilities for the sake of shipping, farming, and real estate. Their waters no longer are healthy, flowing freely or generous.

Time is running out to save these critical Florida waterways that now face the additional threat of climate change.
