MRC is raising $195,000 to complete the first ecological health assessment for the Indian River Lagoon and to produce a status report card in early 2017. We have an outstanding team of local scientists and experts assembled to accomplish this goal.
MRC will generate a printed “State of the Indian River Lagoon” annual report that describes the lagoon health in a simplified, understandable, graphical format AND a web-based platform where data trends and long-term datasets can be graphically depicted.
“State of the Indian River Lagoon” annual report will address questions like:
Assessing the health of the lagoon will be completed in 4 Phases:
Step 1: Define Indicators and Benchmarks
Step 2: Gather the data
Step 3: Define the grading scale
Step 4: Mapping and printing
