Save Our Indian River Lagoon on Florida's Space Coast

An incredibly vibrant sunrise over the calm water of the Indian River Lagoon located on Florida's east coast. The Indian River Lagoon was designated a national estuary of significance by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 1990. Estuaries are critical for fish, birds, and wildlife survival because they provide safe spawning grounds and nurseries. Healthy estuaries support profitable commercial fisheries. When in balance, plant and animal life flourishes.

In 1987, Congress established the National Estuary Program (NEP) as part of the Clean Water Act. The NEP's mission is to protect and restore the health of estuaries.
