Sea Water Pump Project

The endangered sea turtles and extraordinary fish collection at the Gumbo Limbo Environmental Complex need the Greater Boca Raton Beach & Park District to approve the seawater pipes and pumping project. The current system is inadequate to keep the fish healthy, and if the outdated system fails, the animals will die.

Residents and taxpayers have supported Gumbo Limbo since its founding in 1984. As a vital community asset, Gumbo Limbo has educated and inspired thousands of schoolchildren and other visitors, which now exceeds 200,000 per year.

The pump system is unique and integral to the popularity and acclaim the Center has earned. If the pumps fail, we all fail the Center’s endangered animals and fish and the residents who support it.

Your support is urgently needed.
