In recent months we have witnessed a countless amount of ocean life die along the Gulf coast of Florida due to a multitude of factors which we believe amounts to state leaders neglecting to keep checks and balances to protect the environment. What we are seeing is not natural selection. It is a human-made catastrophe.

While short videos have gone viral on social media and brought attention to the issue at hand, these viral videos only provide a quick moment of shock and do not go into any detail about what is killing off ocean life in unprecedented numbers.

The fact of the matter animals are dying and need to be protected. We are aiming to produce a documentary that will do just that. Behind The Red Tide Project's goal is to utilize the plethora of information and experts we find that are able to speak on the subject and bring well-informed awareness to this issue. Frankly the people are tired of this willful negligence and we demand some accountability for these heinous crimes against mother nature.

That’s where you come in! We need your support! One of our current sponsors has agreed to help with this project but it will not be enough to cover the entire project. The more we are able to raise, the better this documentary will be. Money raised from this campaign will go towards necessary equipment, travel and promoting the finished documentary.

Plan of Action:

- Film for 8 days in mid October

- Grab footage along the 140 miles impacted by the red tide.

- Interview representatives, experts and citizens affected who have first-hand experiences and education with the red tides.

- Edit and release just before the November election

The fact of the matter is these red tides are going to continue to get worse as long as state officials are putting personal gain over what is best for the environment. The goal of the Red Tide documentary is bring attention and education to this issue to avoid repeating the same mistakes. We still have time to get this project done before November’s elections and hopefully make an impact on campaigns of the officials that allowed this to happen.

Through our combined social media, email and crowdsourcing strategy, we have the potential to reach millions of people around the world and show the reality of what has been happening along the Gulf Coast and other areas of Florida, but we cannot do it alone. We need your voices, the voices that have not been heard to complete this project!

We thank you for helping us make this project a reality.
