Coastal Keepers

Formerly known as SanCap START (Solutions to Avoid Red Tide), Coastal Keepers is a group of Sanibel and Captiva community members who cherish the ocean, appreciate the rich history of our region, and are determined to conserve our oceans and estuaries for future generations.

Coastal Keepers carries out locally-based conservation initiatives and programs to promote marine conservation. We recognize that marine conservation is a global need, but we focus our efforts locally. We support organizations at state and national levels, but our emphasis is to execute projects that enhance our immediate community and environment. Our hope is that by setting a strong, effective example, our actions will motivate others to engage in conservation in their own hometowns.
