Red tide took Florida by storm in 2018.
We saw record-breaking death tolls for everything from manatees to sea turtles.
Instead of scenic sunsets, beachgoers were subjected to toxic algae and the remains of wildlife like whale sharks and pelicans.
Even humans were affected by the toxic red tide -- especially those with respiratory problems.
This year's outbreak not only hurt local economies but has destroyed coastal ecosystems.
Researchers are concerned with the emptiness of Florida's beaches and reefs… and unfortunately, red tide appears to be returning.
In fact, algae blooms have been recently reported along the Southwest Florida coast from Venice all the way to Naples.
Our fragile ecosystems can't handle much more of this destruction. Tell DeSantis to keep his promises and clean up Florida's water before it's too late!
