BE THE ONE To SUPPORT START in Fighting Red Tide In The “Giving Partner Challenge”



Be ready beginning at noon on May 1st through noon on May 2nd to use the following link to take advantage of this unique opportunity to help START fund our projects and programs that preserve our coastal waters:

As we told you in last month’s edition of our E-Newsletter, from noon on May 1st to noon on May 2nd, your START donation from $25 to $100 will be doubled in the Giving Partner Challenge thanks to matching donations from the Patterson Foundation.

Your “Be the One” donation will help fund:

New expanded nutrient measurements to help forecast red tide
New communications program for governments, businesses and the general public on ways to control nutrients in our waterways
The expansion of our successful Gulf Coast Oyster Recycling and Renewal (GCORR) program that keeps used shells from restaurants out of our landfills and uses them to build new oyster reefs that filter nutrients in seawater
The ongoing clam seeding program in Sarasota Bay
Red Tide updates on our website at
Our monthly E-Newsletter highlighting marine environmental news
Our Public Service Announcements (PSAs) on local TV stations alerting the public to impending red tide blooms
