25 YEARS OF IMPACT

“I dream about the day that we go from restoration to preservation and on that day, I’ll think about George & I’ll know he’ll be smiling.” — Paul Tudor Jones II, Co-Founder of The Everglades Foundation


A LETTER FROM OUR CO-FOUNDER

A QUARTER CENTURY OF COMMITMENT TO A VISION As we approach the 25th anniversary of The Everglades Foundation, I can close my eyes and be transported to the graveside of my dear friend, George Barley. It is June, 1995 — just two years after he and I founded The Everglades Foundation. George Barley accomplished great things in his short life, but whenever I think of him now (and I do so often), I see him under a cobalt blue sky, at the bow of his fishing boat in Florida Bay. There was no place he loved more, nothing he would rather do. When George was taken from us so tragically at the age of 61, I asked the many mourners at his graveside, “Who will pick up the flag?” In the years that followed, you have all answered my question. The flag that George Barley carried has been advanced by tens of thousands of people who have come to share George’s vision of a restored, healthy Everglades and Florida Bay. Each of you have carried it valiantly through your generous support of and participation in The Everglades Foundation. Now in its 25th year, the Foundation is a living commitment to George Barley’s vision. With every advancement by the Foundation’s scientists, his vision is fulfilled; with every child’s introduction to the wonders of this

unique ecosystem, it is renewed; and with every successful restoration project, every drop of clean, fresh water sent south, it is made real. Like all of us who loved George Barley, I take great comfort in the knowledge that, because of you and the work of the Everglades Foundation, the flag he once

carried will continue to fly for many generations to come. THANK YOU for believing in the importance of America’s Everglades. We have come a long way, but we still have a long road ahead. — Paul Tudor Jones, II

A LETTER FROM OUR CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD

A MISSION EVEN MORE IMPORTANT TODAY We have made great strides in the history of The Everglades Foundation: legislative successes in Washington and Tallahassee; striking successes in the federal and state courts; a justly-earned reputation as the “gold standard” of Everglades environmental science and the education of thousands of Florida children, to name just a few. Despite all our efforts and those successes, Florida’s Everglades has never faced greater threats than it does today. A recent report by the Switzerlandbased International Union for Conservation of Nature examined 241 natural sites across the globe and rightly proclaimed the Florida Everglades as the most critically endangered site in the United States. At stake are wildlife, sport fish and other aquatic life and, ultimately, the water supply for the eight million people who depend on the Lower Floridian aquifer — in short, the very sustainability of human life in South Florida. This year I saw the Foundation successfully persuade the Florida Legislature and Governor Rick Scott to enact Senate Bill 10, expediting the Everglades Agricultural Area Reservoir. The achievement cannot be overstated. This is the biggest single water storage and treatment project south of Lake Okeechobee since passage of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan in 2000.

05

THE EVERGLADES FOUNDATION

The Everglades faces no threat greater than that posed by nutrient pollution, and the Foundation’s $10 million George Barley Water Prize — the biggest incentive water prize in history — seeks to find a breakthrough. An update on the project is provided in these pages. Everglades restoration is not something that will be accomplished overnight, or even in our lifetimes. That’s why the Board of Directors has placed a singular priority on education. I’m sure you will be impressed with the accomplishments detailed in the Education section of this report. As the International Union for Conservation of Nature has

observed, we have good reason to be concerned about the future of our beloved Everglades and Florida Bay — but we also have much to celebrate. As we enter into our next quarter century of existence well-aware of the challenges before us, we are confident in our ability to meet them and determined to do so. — Marshall Field V


A LETTER FROM OUR CEO

OUR GOALS TODAY & HOPE FOR A BETTER TOMORROW A year ago at this time, few would have given us much chance of convincing the Florida Legislature to approve the expenditure of $1.4 billion to speed construction of a massive water storage reservoir south of Lake Okeechobee. Yet thanks to each of you — and to tens of thousands of people from every part of Florida — both Houses overwhelmingly approved the legislation and Governor Scott was eager to sign it. Our work is by no means finished. Now, we must ensure that federal and state governments build a reservoir that works. It must be capable of holding enough water to significantly reduce the toxic discharges that are ruining estuaries along both Florida coasts. It must also be dynamic, able to send clean, fresh water into the Everglades and Florida Bay during the dry season. Meanwhile, The George Barley Water Prize has shone a bright light on the need to find a safe, effective and scalable means to reduce phosphorus levels in water supplies. The Board’s bold incentive award attracted more than 100 teams, from nearly a dozen countries. Now in the pilot stage, the 10 remaining teams continue to compete as they test their promising technologies under cold weather conditions. Our prestigious science team, meanwhile, continues to provide detailed, reliable data to

policymakers at local, state and federal levels. They are a treasure and a well-recognized, invaluable resource we will continue to develop. We have redoubled our commitment to the Foundation’s Everglades Literacy program, which ensures that future generations of Everglades advocates will appreciate this unique ecosystem and be well-prepared to take up the baton when their time comes to protect it.

especially as we celebrate our 25th year in 2018. I have watched our esteemed Board of Directors and staff rise to meet and overcome every challenge we have faced — all thanks to the generosity and activism of supporters like you. Thank you. — Eric Eikenberg

It is a unique privilege to serve as CEO of The Everglades Foundation,

PREDICTING OUTCOMES, CHANGING THE FUTURE

CLIMATE CHANGE

RESTORATION POTENTIAL

CLEAN WATER

The Everglades Foundation’s Hydrologist, Dr. Rajendra Paudel, spent time in 2017 developing a range of Everglades restoration options and evaluating system-wide benefits. The study uses hydrological models developed by state and federal agencies that have been frequently used in the Everglades restoration planning process.

As a part of the End-Point Restoration Plan, the Foundation’s Quantitative Ecologist, Dr. Ruscena Wiederholt, collected a set of 18 ecological indicators for multiple plant and animal species that span the Greater Everglades, from Lake Okeechobee to Florida Bay. Her research demonstrated the potential effect of our proposed restoration projects, specifically how they would impact indicator species — such as alligators, crocodiles, snail kites and different vegetation types.

Having spent 242 days of 2016 in a State of Emergency, Florida is no stranger to the issue of phosphorous pollution. Dr. Yogesh Khare, the Foundation’s Environmental Engineer, spent much of 2017 successfully developing scientific models in the Feeder Canal, L-28 Basin and L-28 Gap Basins in the Western Everglades. His work allowed him to analyze the potential impact of phosphorous control strategies presented by the Western Everglades Restoration Project (WERP — an ongoing state and federal agency work as a part of CERP implementation). A manuscript based on Feeder Canal Basin modeling study was prepared for publication in a scientific journal. It is currently under internal review.

Hydrologic output has been used to evaluate system-wide water quality changes and infrastructure needs, and ecological conditions with a suite of tools specific to different components of the system (e.g., wading birds, alligators, oysters). The findings of the research are relevant to Everglades restoration, especially in light of recent and emerging science on storage feasibility and climate change. Additionally, in August of 2017, The Everglades Foundation hosted the “Everglades and Climate Change Workshop.” The objective of the workshop was to organize the discussion on developing robust regional climate information to support Everglades restoration planning.

A

fter forming as a Tropical Storm on August 30, 2017 and becoming a major Hurricane on September 3, Irma traveled more than 3,000 miles from near the Cape Verde Islands to the north coast of Cuba. On September 10, Hurricane Irma steered to the north, passing over

the lower Florida Keys and western Florida Bay before heading up the southwest coast of the Florida peninsula, along Everglades National Park. A full scientific assessment of impacts will take months, and recovery may take years. However, on an initial reconnaissance flight on September 13, Dr. Steve Davis, The Everglades Foundation’s Ecologist, took a number of photos and documented areas immediately affected by Hurricane Irma.

The most notable observations of this flight were the extremely wet conditions observed throughout the southern Everglades, with abundant high water in coastal wetlands and tan-colored plumes indicating high storm surge and rainfall. Irma’s surge also took its toll on sensitive seagrass habitats in western Florida Bay, uprooting a substantial quantity of seagrass from these shallow waters. This was noted from above as a large floating dead mat of decaying seagrass that were accumulated near shore from East Cape Sable all the way to Snake Bight. On September 26, Dr. Davis and Edyna Garcia, Marketing & Digital Communications Specialist, toured western Florida Bay by boat with Florida Keys fishing guides to document impacts on the water. More than two weeks after Irma’s passage, They still noted evidence of impact with a mangrove that had been ripped away from the coast. However, they also saw evidence of Florida Bay’s resilience. In association with the floating mats of grass,

there were countless shrimp and an abundance of small blue crabs that were clearly attracting birds, tarpon and dolphin. Shortly after this trip, a large-scale algal bloom covered much of the upper bay with some of the highest chlorophyll concentrations (an indication of algal abundance) ever observed in Florida Bay.

The bloom continued through December and was visible on an overflight taken by Dr. Davis and Foundation Board Member Gary Lickle on November 17 and in MODIS satellite imagery. The Foundation will continue to coordinate and communicate information on post-Irma recovery in Everglades National Park as data becomes available.

IRMA’S AFTERMATH Ten Thousand Islands

On September 10, 2017, category 4 Hurricane Irma first made landfall in Florida in the lower Florida Keys with maximum winds of 132 mph. It tore through Florida Bay and much of Everglades National Park as it made its final landfall near Marco Island later that day with estimated maximum winds of 115 mph. Impacts to the coastal Everglades and Florida Bay associated with storm surge and wind damage are described below.

STORM SURGE Storm surge was as high as 9 feet in the coastal Everglades as Hurricane Irma moved across western Florida Bay and up the west coast. The seagrass meadows covering the bay’s bottom and mangrove forests absorbed much of this energy. Irma’s storm surge penetrated at least 15 miles into lower Shark River Slough.

Inherited from the Arthur Marshall Foundation, the eight-week long internship program allowed the four college students to dive into the world of restoration. From trekking through Big Cypress National Preserve and boating through Florida Bay, to meeting with key stakeholders, politicians, and local businessmen, the interns earned an in-depth understanding of the inner-workings of conservation. Additionally, the JMEI program allowed each intern to gain experience in one of the Foundation’s four programs: science, advocacy, education and communications. Over the course of the eight weeks, the interns were mentored by the department heads and fulfilled a capstone project within their respective fields. The four also made sure to document their experiences via weekly blog posts and a video project, which now serve as key marketing tools for the next wave of applicants.

THE EVERGLADES FOUNDATION

A priority project in the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP) in 2000, the EAA Reservoir is a critical component in providing water storage to protect Florida’s central coasts and reconnect Lake Okeechobee with the Everglades and Florida Bay. Florida Senate President Joe Negron led the charge on Senate Bill 10, and The Everglades Foundation rallied behind

him to build momentum and support for the reservoir. The Everglades Foundation joined forces with its EAC partners, stakeholders, business leaders, and concerned citizens to bring the SB10 movement to the state capital. There, conservationists, anglers, realtors, hospitality professionals, and outdoor enthusiasts shared their concerns over the lingering threat of economically and ecologically

devastating algal blooms and the lack of fresh water flowing south to Florida Bay. These engaged citizens helped the Florida Legislature understand that the EAA Reservoir is an essential component of solving these problems.

The EAA Reservoir is on track, but we are still near the beginning of a lengthy process. The journey ahead will take us to the halls of the U.S. Capitol because the project still needs to be authorized by Congress and receive federal funding. It will be our responsibility at every step in the process to make sure policymakers and elected representatives remain resolute to build a reservoir that works.

VOICES The Everglades Foundation also organized a “CEO Day” in our state’s capital, welcoming manufacturers and retailers from across the nation, all of whom generate significant economic benefits in Florida. The CEOs met with legislators to discuss both the economic benefits of moving the SB10 project forward and the costs

of failing to do so. Data and analysis generated by economists at Clemson University (results depicted above), bolstered the case addressing these environmental threats. Thanks to the efforts of our environmental and industry partners and concerned citizens, Senate Bill 10 passed with overwhelming support in both the Florida House and Florida Senate. On May 9, 2017, Governor Rick Scott signed the bill into law. Though a celebration was in order, the journey had just begun.

RESTORATION

When President Harry Truman formally dedicated Everglades National Park 70 years ago, he spoke in religious terms. “For conservation of the human spirit, we need places such as Everglades National Park where we may be more keenly aware of our Creator’s infinitely varied, infinitely beautiful, and infinitely bountiful handiwork.” “Here,” he said that December afternoon in Everglades City, “we may draw strength and peace of mind from our surroundings.”

OUR PARTNERS Each year during the month of April, we team up with Aveda to celebrate Earth month and clean water initiatives.

The Batchelor Foundation is proud to support The Everglades Foundation’s efforts to engage K–12 students on the restoration and conservation of the Everglades ecosystem through its Everglades Literacy Program.

THE EVERGLADES FOUNDATION

The Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties was established in 1972 and is one of the oldest and largest foundations in the state. Their mission is to work together with their donors, serve as the leading catalyst for building vibrant communities through meaningful philanthropy. The Crawford Taylor Foundation of St. Louis, Missouri has provided a major investment in the restoration of America’s Everglades.

Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) has made a major commitment to The Everglades Foundation’s projects for restoration and preservation of Florida’s unique Everglades. Hawks Cay Resort is partnering with The Everglades Foundation to raise awareness of its initiative to restore and protect the greater Everglades ecosystem. The heart of the partnership lies in the resort’s Environmental Education program for children at Camp Hawk, which will provide a new Everglades Literacy curriculum for campers.

Lacoste is proud to support The Everglades Foundation and their efforts to restore America’s Everglades. The crocodile has been the iconic Lacoste logo since 1933 and the endangered American Crocodile is an indicator species that reflects the health of the Everglades ecosystem. The Miami Foundation partners with donors to champion their causes and improve local quality of life by taking leadership on civic issues, investing in our community and nurturing philanthropy.

The Jim Moran Foundation’s grant to The Everglades Foundation provides support for delivery of the Everglades Literacy curriculum in Broward County Schools. The Everglades Foundation’s efforts to restore the flow of clean water from Lake Okeechobee south into the Everglades receive generous support from The Orvis Company’s Customer Matching Grant Program.

The Everglades Foundation is the proud recipient of a Peacock Foundation grant in support of its Everglades Literacy Program, which helped to carry out the work of the Foundation’s Everglades Curriculum during the 2016-2017 school year in Miami-Dade County.

The Foundation’s partnership with SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment is focused on educating young Floridians about the importance of saving and supporting The Everglades Literacy Program in Florida.
