Kayaking for Conservation

$3,240 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 59 people in 19 months
Hi everyone! 
My name is Cole Kolasa and I'm currently on a Kayak tour from Pensacola to the Florida Keys. I am raising money to support restoration projects in Hernando County, including artificial reefs, and oyster reefs as well. As an avid free-diver I hope to see more artificial reefs along with wrecks and interesting structures to explore. I hope to begin studying one of the nearshore reefs as a project at UCF to determine how these artificial reefs can make our coasts more resilient. As I paddle the Gulf Coast I hope to interview residents and resource staff to learn what their communities are doing to restore and enhance their ecosystems. Please check out my blog for pictures, videos, and updates!

Please Share!! It's been 2 weeks and we've made over 1500$ for the reefs in Hernando county!! Let's see if we can double that over the next 2 weeks while I kayak through the Big Bend!
