The Florida Department of Environmental Protection's Office of Resilience and Coastal Protection is partnering with Panama City Diving to host the 3rd Annual End of Summer Jetties Cleanup, an underwater marine debris cleanup at St. Andrews State Park. The past two cleanups yielded around 350 pounds of marine debris mainly consisting of discarded monofilament. Free breakfast and free tank rentals are available for volunteer divers. With help from the Florida Resilient Coastlines Program, we purchased mesh bags, gloves and snips that will be available to the first 75 divers at the event.
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is the state’s lead agency for environmental management and stewardship – protecting our air, water and land. The vision of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection is to create strong community partnerships, safeguard Florida’s natural resources and enhance its ecosystems.
