Seven million inhabitants of South Florida are critically tied to the Greater Everglades. The area's main source of freshwater, which also neighbors a large expanse of agriculture, is vulnerable because of our interconnected waterways. Across natural, agricultural and urban landscapes through a highly complex network, contaminants are transported.

Through our research, we convey the impacts of contamination to policy and decision makers. We give them the tools to make a difference in ecosystem health and human wellbeing. By fostering student engagement, we increase the number of well-qualified science professionals, build students’ identities as scientists and guide them to becoming effective science communicators, with practice presenting their results to local communities.
