"Life in the Bay" Community Video

To celebrate our 30th anniversary, we’re putting you in the director’s chair. Help us tell the #LoveTampaBay story by uploading a short video clip below. Submissions are due October 14th and should feature you enjoying the bay and its watershed.  We’ll put it all together in time for a grand reveal!

Piney Point Monitoring Updates

Updates on Tampa Bay’s response to the 2021 Piney Point discharge event, coordinated with partner support by the Tampa Bay Estuary Program.

Be Floridian

In Florida, summer rains don’t water fertilizer in — they wash it off our lawns and into our lakes, bays and oceans. Be Floridian asks Tampa Bay residents to skip the fertilizer from June 1st – September 30th and save the bay for FUN. 

Piney Point Environmental Monitoring Dashboard

We are coordinating with regional partners to monitor the environmental effects of the Piney Point discharge on Tampa Bay. Data are updated regularly on the linked dashboard. 

The State of the Bay

Partnership for a Healthy Bay

2020 Habitat Master Plan Update

Tampa Bay is home to a rich mosaic of habitats that provide life-sustaining resources to wildlife and humans alike.  The 2020 Habitat Master Plan Update identifies habitat restoration targets that consider future stressors facing our region.
