Environment: Red Tide
SKA shares the concerns of our members and all local residents and visitors over the extraordinary red tide blooms devastating our coastal waters this year. We are all distressed by the effect this is having on the lives of residents, our wildlife, and our economy.
Our Environmental Committee is collaborating with the Barrier Islands League to work with local experts and elected and appointed officials at all levels to better understand this problem and to help promote long term solutions. We will advise our members on progress as information becomes available.
