Florida Oceanographic Oyster Restoration (FL.O.O.R.)
What is FL.O.O.R.?

Vincent Encomio, PhD, Research Scientist, spearheads the effort to restore the oyster population devastated by fresh-water discharges into the estuary that began in 2005 and continues today! The oysters are critical to cleaning the water and providing habitat and food for up to 300 estuarine species.

The FL.O.O.R. (Florida Oceanographic Oyster Restoration) program actively engages the public in restoring oyster reef habitat. With the aid of thousands of volunteers, FL.O.O.R. restores oyster habitat by recycling shell, constructing reefs and growing oysters.

How to Get Involved

The success of the FL.O.O.R. program relies on extensive volunteer support and community engagement. Help us continue our mission to “inspire environmental stewardship of Florida’s coastal ecosystems through education, research and advocacy.”
Please wear closed-toe shoes to all events, and be prepared to enter the water up to waist deep at the reef deployments. Gloves, water, and snacks are provided.
