Through Institute research, we’ve identified some of the factors leading to the degredation of our local Biscayne Bay. In collaboration with our partners, we’re implementing solutions to improve the resilience and sustainability of our beautiful bay.
Our vision of the future includes new research-inspired tools for assessing pollution while also improving how we evaluate the toxic effects on plants, animals and people.
This year, the Institute has reignited our partnership with the Biscayne Bay Marine Health Summit Coalition in an effort to implement a “Post Summit Plan of Action” focused on advocacy, communication and education. This partnership will advance Biscayne Bay restoration and preservation initiatives, bolstering stakeholder and community efforts to protect the landmark waterway to address threats.

Biscayne Bay Marine Health - The Action Summit
Representatives from governments, businesses, NGOs and academia met on FIU's Biscayne Bay Campus in September 2019 to initiate an action plan to restore and maintain the health of the bay and Miami-Dade County's canals and rivers.

By supporting Biscayne Bay Health, you will join hands with the community in responding to the challenges these waters are facing. The project supports an annual summit to share valuable information on the impact of Biscayne Bay's overall health on the local ecosystem — the people, wildlife and waters around us.
