Rotary against red tide

Local rotary clubs donated $25,000 to The Science and Environment Council for the red tide impact study
by: Katie Johns Community Editor

In February, local chapters of the Rotary Club, including Longboat Key, Sarasota Sunrise and Sarasota Bay, hosted “Rotary Fights Red Tide” at Mote Marine Laboratory to raise money for research. On April 4, the clubs presented $25,000 to The Science and Environment Council for the red tide impact study. The donation will be used to conduct a study of community impacts from the 2018 red tide bloom.
