These veterans from Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, an organization dedicated to the rehabilitation of disabled active military service personnel and disabled veterans through fly fishing, shared the healing impact of spending time outdoors and why they believe ocean conservation is important.
As part Ocean Conservancy’s work as Ocean Partner for the Miami Super Bowl Host Committee, we were proud to partner with Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing to host an ocean cleanup in Key West and sponsor the Lower Keys Guides Association’s Sugarloaf Showdown fishing tournament. Together, we collected more than 4,000 lbs of trash and the fishing tournament went single-use plastic free for the first time – bringing us that much closer to our goal to remove and divert 54 tons of waste from Florida’s coast and waterways as a part of our Super Bowl Host Committee partnership.
