Video: The Balance Shows Why We Must Act Now to Save the Everglades

Orvis has made protecting the Everglades the focus of our conservation efforts this year, and our CEO, Perk Perkins, has been leading the charge by taking out a full-page ad in the Miami Herald, meeting with state legislators to lobby in support of pro-Everglades legislation, and writing op eds.

We are proud today to premier a new video from Florida filmmaker Dan Decibel Diez, made with support from Orvis and many of our partners in the fly-fishing industry, as well as others. The list of sponsors at the end of the video includes some of the biggest names in manufacturing, media, and conservation. This is a vital cause that is bringing us all together because now is the time to act.

Our friends at the Everglades Foundation have told us that our collective efforts are making a difference and that those with influence are listening. Our hope is to keep the voices loud and consistent on the heels of this work.
