Port guardians protect the environment
BREVARD COUNTY • PORT CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – Ports, by their very nature, tend to occupy fragile environments and our most important task as Port guardians is to protect this environment.
In peak condition, our land and waters can support the well-being and interests of groups as diverse as the cruise and cargo industries, the coastal residential community and Florida’s special animal and plant populations.
It is a workplace, a home and a key element in our planet’s system of self-renewal.
It is our job to maintain, and when necessary restore, the critical balance of physical conditions that allows Port Canaveral to fulfill its many functions.
For an environmentally sensitive area as large and active as Port Canaveral, this requires commitment on a daily basis.
The Canaveral Port Authority has a number of environmental initiatives driven by this commitment:
• Artificial Reef Habitats
• Beach Renourishment
• Water Quality Monitoring
• Wildlife Protection – Imperiled Species
• 2016 Sea Turtle Season Notice
