Apalachicola Riverkeeper is a member-supported watchdog organization dedicated to the restoration and protection of the Apalachicola River and Bay and the only organization whose sole mission is to preserve this spectacular natural resource for future generations.

The Apalachicola River basin is renowned as one of the most ecologically diverse natural areas in the Southeastern United States and as the River’s watchdog, Apalachicola Riverkeeper is working to save the River and Bay with every tool at our disposal – advocacy, science, on-the-water patrols, public education and, when necessary, legal action.

We are committed to saving this resource now, because we know that without protection, this beautiful natural area could disappear. Our strength as a grassroots advocacy organization committed to protecting the River and Bay comes from the support of our 1400 members living throughout the 19,800 square mile Apalachicola River basin and around the country. Along with our members, Apalachicola Riverkeeper is the River’s “voice”. Our action is critical to focus public and political attention on the importance of saving this one-of-a-kind resource.

We believe that everyone has a shared responsibility to protect our natural world: to use only what we need, make smarter choices, and pass on to future generations the beauty, wildlife, water and natural resources we have today.
