Conch Republic Marine Army, Inc.

$9,035 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 53 people in 9 months
This is a grassroots effort to raise awareness and funds to clean up our waterways, canals and shorline of debris left from Huricane Irma.  The State and County are overwhelmed and we need to get the plastics, hazerdous materials, hot tubs, tv's, refridgerators, mattresses, furniture, etc.  out of the waters as quickly as possible.  We would like to raise funds for a small workboat that can get up into the mangroves and a trailer so we we are portable and can cover all The Keys and backcountry.  
We are trying to correct the damage left by Irma to the Florida  Keys waters.

Our Latest Event had us taking on Ramrod Key September 1st. Nearly 150 volunteers pulled almost 11,000 pounds of trash thanks to a barge loaned to us from Coffin Marine. We stand today at 99.47 tons of weighed garbage removed from the waters of the Florida keys but sadly we have only done about 4 miles of the over 1000 miles of shoreline. There is much to do and we are not stopping. Consider coming to our next event which is posted on our website at www.conchrepublicmarinearmy.com

Big Pine Key Canal clean up...#2. !!!!!!! Jan 27th at 9:00 am Old Wooden Bridge Marina

Calling on everyone again to help clean up the canals, shorelines, and our little islands. I have been contacted by newspapers all over who watch our little effort grow. We had people join in from Miami, Homestead and just about every key in the Florida keys. I need you AGAIN and everyone in kayaks, canoes, bath tubs, floating debris barges, skiffs, paddle boards, water wings or anything that floats. I need help on land too! Tons of it. I need Lenore Baker and her beautiful sleigh. Lots of people (over 200) liked our last post and effort, and we put over 50 to work really hard all day. I know know that even Virginia is sending a rep for this time. We can do more.

We have arranged for a Watson Field (on big pine) Cookout as a reward for everyone. Smokers and grills getting delivered. Lisa Miletti and her magic wand will host and hopefully grabbing some bands, or if you play join in. I'll be launching a small fundraiser to get some money to pay for kayak rentals, waters, fuel etc. If you live in the mainland of the USA or anywhere on this Big Blue Marble, it would be a great way to know your're truly helping, by helping us do what clearly no one is doing.

Please please spread the word. Share the post to everything.

The marine life of the beautiful Florida Keys needs our help, and we're doing this Now!
