 Take a Photo to Stop the SlimeShare this page on FacebookShare this page on TwitterShare this page with other services

No matter where you live in Florida, chances are that you are not far from a toxic algae outbreak during the summer. Fertilizer, sewage, and animal manure pollution feeds the ugly green slime that grows fast this time of year and threatens our ponds, springs, streams, rivers, canals and bays.

We need photos of that ugly algae -- a picture speaks a thousand words! You can help make the case for strong pollution standards by submitting a photo telling us the reason you want to stop water pollution -- whether that's a picture of you with a sign or a shot of your local slime.

How to Participate
  1. Snap a photo of:
    • The slime that covers a pond, lake, spring, river or beachfront near you
    • Your own reason for why you think it is time to end the slime
  2. Email your photo to with your zip code and the date of the photo in the subject line
  4. Sign the petition strong limits on fertilizer, sewage and animal manure pollution
  6. Tell your friends!
We will collect the photos and deliver them with your signatures to the FDEP and other key decision makers. The images you submit will bear witness to the slime crimes that threaten our way of life.
