Broward County, FL Reefs In Danger from Dredge Dumping

"Killing or damaging the last remaining good shallow reefs in east Florida by dredging and filling would be like dynamiting the last giant redwood stand," said Dr. Tom Goreau, president of The Global Coral Reef Alliance. "At a time when reefs are showing the effects of multiple stresses, any activities that would cause any further damage could irreversibly degrade the reef ecosystem and damage local fisheries."
