Have you heard of the Red Tide issue in Florida?
Runoff from the local agriculture farms has released plant steroids into the surrounding waters of the gulf, resulting in a red tide algae bloom of devastating proportions.
Locals informed us that what used to be a week long event, has been going on for three months now, with the super bloom of algae essentially starving oxygen out of the water and suffocating the sea life.
They warned us of the putrid smell of dead fish and told us to cover our faces since breathing it can lead to respiratory illness.
We drove to the coast to check it out, and while we didn’t see the washed up dolphins and manatees that the locals had mentioned, it was definitely a somber, post apocalyptic experience. There were fish scattered along the shore as far as the eye could see and hundreds of them floating out in the greenish black water. The air smelt of death.
I left feeling heavy with a sadness in my heart. The waters here are typically light blue with pristine white sand. It was a sobering wake up call to experience the effects of ocean pollution first hand, and to really feel the interconnectedness of our fragile ecosystems.
