About Detail

Our History…

Blue-Green Connections, Inc. was formed in May or 2019 as a result of work done to nominate the waters of the Florida Gulf Coast as a Mission BlueTM Hope Spot. During the course of the nomination process, the founders had the opportunity to interact with a large number of diverse individuals and institutions. We gained a deeper understanding of the connections between actions on the land and effects on the waters – and vice-versa. We discovered that despite the different focuses and areas of expertise, there was a large overlap in concerns about unsustainable human practices  and climate change as well as a hunger for more information and collaboration to address the many and varied threats – connections just needed to be made. And thus Blue-Green Connections, Inc. was born!

Our Mission…

Using the Florida Gulf Coast as its initial project and rallying point, Blue-Green Connections’ mission is to promote and support sustainable use of our precious land and water resources. We will accomplish this by:

  • Providing a means for on-going collaboration amongst a broad and diverse set of interested parties to facilitate communication, data gathering and information sharing and to stimulate cooperation and unity of effort
  • Informing business people, educators, government officials, and the general public about sustainability and conservation through conferences, workshops, local meetings, and publications
  • Funding research and activities supporting research that support sustainability and conservation actions
  • Restoring and conserving land and water resources and participating in land and water  management activities, and
  • Encouraging sustainable individual and business practices that preserve and protect land and waters.

The activities will be primarily funded through grants, donations and fundraisers. You can help! Please consider becoming a Florida Gulf Coast Hope Spot Supporter today! See how you can get involved…
