now or neverglades

By Sage Fly Fish

On Friday, January 19th, Sage joined the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust and Fly Fisherman Magazine, for the 5th Annual BTT Florida Keys Dinner & Awards Ceremony in Islamorada, Florida. This year’s event honored Sandy Moret for his lifelong commitment to conservation and leadership of the Now or Neverglades Coalition.  At the ceremony, Sandy received the 2018 Fly Fisherman Magazine Conservationist of the Year award.  Read more about Sandy and his tireless work in this Fly Fisherman Magazine article, written by Sarah Grigg.
Sandy's work has resulted in the formation of the Now or Neverglades Coalition.  With a goal to restore the Everglades, protect Florida’s water and save Florida tourism, the Now or Neverglades Coalition is a group of likeminded and knowledgeable individuals and organizations who realized the problem and solution to Florida’s water disaster are apparent. The declaration is a nonpartisan document ignoring political posturing, created from the science and providing a reasonable conclusion. The support for the declaration’s direction is staggering and growing exponentially.
Today, the need for your support is as important as ever.  Please read about the problem and the vision for correcting it, sign the Now or Neverglades declaration, and take action today by contacting Florida Governor Scott.
