Natural Awakenings Naples and Fort Myers

Environmentally Speaking

Environmentally speaking is intended to alert, inform and educate residents of Collier and Lee counties about educational events and threats that challenge our unique and delicate Southwest Florida ecosystem.

Sierra Club and Citizens Climate Lobby are collaboration for a local Hands Across The Sand (HATS) event in Fort Myers Beach on May 21 from 9 am to 12 pm. 

The Florida Offshore Drilling Coalition has become active once again and is helping to coordinate and organize the events in Florida. HATS events across the world are for saying "NO to fossil fuels and YES to clean energy". For Florida, the coalition is focusing their call to action by asking the Biden Administration for no new leases for offshore drilling and exploration in the Atlantic Ocean and off Florida’s Gulf Coast for the next five years.
