We're a non-profit dedicated to the clean up, education, and preservation of the shorelines and mangroves of the Florida Keys

The Problem

Plastics, styrofoams, ropes, etc. that is on the shoreline, mangroves and near shore islands of the Florida Keys is causing detrimental harm to our marine life, our seabirds and ourselves. This garbage bakes in the summer sun, breaks down to micro plastics, is carried out to sea by the "King" high tides of October, and circulates into our food chain. Marine life and birds ingest plastic and get caught in ropes, strangling them and starving them to death.

The Solution

There are over 1,800 miles of shoreline in the Florida Keys. We, as mamaOcean, are setting up teams to  continuously clean the keys in four different sectors. The areas to be cleaned will depend on tides, wind and flow of where the garbage  is more concentrated. Cleaning the shoreline, mangroves, and near shore islands is just the beginning. We must cut out the use of single use plastics, recycle what we can, educate on the affects of the waste we produce, and prevent it from further harming our beautiful home.

The Future

The severity of the problem is enormous, and the Florida Keys is just the beginning. Once we have established our teams in the Keys, we plan to expand our operation to Panama, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica. Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
