Help Stop Killer Algae!
Harmful algal blooms (HABs) can kill fish, marine mammals, and birds. They can contaminate shellfish with toxins, and harm human health, sometimes resulting in fatalities. They are proven to have a negative impact on coastal lifestyles including tourism. In fact, it has been estimated that toxic algal blooms, like “red tide” cost coastal communities over $80 million every year. These problems are getting worse, as the incidence, duration, and severity of HAB events are on the rise.
