Eyes on the Suncoast
Help Us Keep Watch Over Our Waters
Though we perform regular patrols of the waters with our patrol boat, Suncoast Waterkeeper can't be everywhere at once. The waters on the Suncoast are worth protecting and you can help us keep Eyes on the Suncoast by reporting what you see through this program. Whether boating, biking, swimming, or walking, everyone out on the water or just going by can help remind residents and visitors why the Suncoast is worth protecting. Your contributions are vital!
We rely on the community to help take care of our beautiful environment. Often, our efforts are guided by what YOU see in your day-to-day life. It all starts with an email or call in which someone reports a pollution incident and we take it from there! Suncoast Waterkeeper then follows up with the relevant parties and local agencies to try and find the root of the issue and address it before it harms our waterways further. We have worked to make it easy for you to submit what you see in the form below
