Neighbors, organization install mini reefs to clean water on Fort Myers Beach

See something, say something is a popular phrase used these days. A group of neighbors in Southwest Florida decided to change it up a bit: “See something, do something.” The message is part of the neighbor’s effort to clean up the water in their backyards.

A group of neighbors on Fort Myers Beach teamed up with Ocean Habitats to install mini reef along neighbor’s’ docks as part of their initiative to improve water quality.

“You can help so much, and you can do your part,” neighbor Joe Fleming said. “We had over 51 reefs going in today and more at a later date.”

The neighbors paid for the reefs out of their own pockets. These neighbors hope the mini reefs will help keep the water clean on a daily basis.
