SCCF’s Coastal Watch implements local, volunteer-based initiatives to restore our habitats, clean our environment, and encourage sustainability.
Coastal Watch relies on volunteers who are active in the local community to promote healthier, greener ways of interacting with our coastal environment.

Coastal Watch began as the Sanibel-Captiva Chapter of Solutions to Avoid Red Tide (START), a state-wide organization dedicated to minimizing the negative effects of red tide.
In 2017, Coastal Watch narrowed its focus to Lee County and created its own program within the Sanibel Sea School. Coastal Watch is now part of the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation Family and hopes to motivate others to engage in conservation in their own hometowns.
