Coastal Citizen Resources

Living along Florida’s coast provides a multitude of spectacular sceneries, unique interactions with marine life, and a variety of relaxing recreational opportunities under the state’s warm and sunny climate. Because of the ever-changing nature of coastal environments, though, these same attributes can serve as potential hazards if residents and visitors are not responsible in their actions. By learning about the coastal environment in which they live, and staying informed about coastal issues and stewardship actions they can take, residents and visitors can help protect themselves, their loved ones and the environment while living along or visiting Florida’s coast.
