Last night, Orvis CEO Perk Perkins addressed attendees at the opening reception for The Everglades Coalition Conference in Sanibel, Florida. The theme of this year’s conference is “Three Estuaries, One Solution,” focusing on the mis-allocation of water resources in southern Florida, which is leading to toxic algae blooms and the demise of Florida Bay. In his remarks–which we will publish later today–Perkins called for “Urgency and total devotion” to the cause.
