    MRC is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization whose mission is to protect and restore the Indian River Lagoon (IRL), the estuary that's imperative to our coastal community lifestyle. The IRL generates over $3 billion to our local economy annually, which is nothing compared to the value of cherished memories and priceless moments spent with family and friends along the Lagoon.

    MRC is leading the charge to save the Indian River Lagoon with science-based advocacy, education, and community engagement. 90% of contributions go directly to programs and projects that support our mission. Our 2014 goals are to enhance fish and bird habitat by planting over 5000 mangroves, conducting over 50 workshops for citizens and elected officials, and engaging 200 new volunteers in lagoon-lifesaving activities. Help us save the IRL! Join MRC today!
