JOIN THE PEOPLE UNITED TO RESTORE OUR RIVERS AND ESTUARIES

Our Mission: PURRE is a nonprofit organization whose members and partners are committed to improving the health and productivity of the rivers and estuaries of South Florida.

South Florida’s estuary system is in danger of being destroyed beyond the possibility of repair by man or nature if policies are not changed. Years of mismanagement, excess nutrients from polluted Lake Okeechobee and watershed runoff, and rapid growth development contribute to the deterioration of our precious marine ecosystem. These are the causes of our water-quality problems – and they have yet to be addressed.

"We must build a peace in South Florida - a peace between the people and their place, between the natural environment and man-made settlement, between the works of man and the life of mankind itself. "
