Florida Keys Provides Contrast to Southwest Florida’s Water Woes

Pelican Media traveled to the Florida Keys to shoot video of the startling clarity of the  water that is a stark contrast to the water issues we see in Southwest Florida. We will use the video in an upcoming documentary for WGCU Public Media called Preserving Our Waters. It will help illustrate what Estero Bay might have looked like to Bill Mellor who fished there as a boy growing up in the late 1930’s. Fifty years ago he lead a group of concerned citizens to help protect Estero Bay from over development and in the process  created what lead to the first aquatic preserve in Florida.
