Orvis has made protecting the Everglades the focus of our conservation efforts this year, and our CEO, Perk Perkins, has been leading the charge by taking out a full-page ad in the Miami Herald, meeting with state legislators to lobby in support of pro-Everglades legislation, and writing op eds.

We are proud to premier a new video from Florida filmmaker Dan Decibel Diez, made with support from Orvis and many of our partners in the fly-fishing industry, as well as others. The list of sponsors at the end of the video includes some of the biggest names in manufacturing, media, and conservation. This is a vital cause that is bringing us all together because now is the time to act.

Here’s what you can do to help:

1. Tell Florida’s leaders to support SB 10 to build the EAA Reservoir. Text the word “WATER” to 52886.
2. Visit the Orvis Commitment Everglades page to learn how Orvis will match your donation to help fund the important work of the Everglades Foundation.
3. Visit the Everglades Foundation to learn how you can get involved on the ground.
4. Sign the #NowOrNeverglades Declaration
