Environmental Issues Team

The Florida Keys are known for their fragile, beautiful environment that can so easily be tipped into devastating imbalance.  The Environmental Issues Team is keenly aware of the local, state, and national issues that can devastate our planet.  Whether climate change, water quality, pipelines through fragile environments, or our own issues with our reefs and the Everglades, this Team monitors Environmental Issues; educates itself, the community, and UKAN; and identifies Calls to Action to save our environment and our planet.  If you are concerned about the decimation of the EPA, the deregulation of the environment and those who might harm it, join this Team to add your voice and support to defending our planet.

Take Action!
