For Today and Tomorrow


The waters of Tampa Bay encompass nearly 400 square miles and form Florida’s largest open-water estuary. Estuaries like Tampa Bay are among the most diverse and productive ecosystems in the world.


Our bay’s unique estuarine environment provides habitat for a variety of important fish and wildlife species. This environment is a driving force for the local economy and a primary factor in the quality of life for the region. Residents from the Manatee River to Clearwater Harbor and from Hillsborough Bay to the Gulf of Mexico depend on Tampa Bay for commercial and recreational activities.


The Tampa Bay Guardians support Tampa Bay Watch’s mission to restore and protect the Bay with a three-year pledge of at least $1,000 annually. Annual levels of giving are as follows:


• Leader: $1,000 - $2,499

• Advocate: $2,500 - $4,999

• Steward: $5,000 - $9,999

• Champion: $10,000 +


If desired, Tampa Bay Guardian gifts can be designated for habitat restoration programs or the Estuary EDventures environmental education program.


Members will receive all the benefits of Membership at Tampa Bay Watch at the highest level, plus:


• Listing on the Tampa Bay Watch website

• Recognition in the quarterly printed newsletter, The Bay Watch Log

• Special Recognition in the Annual Report

• Discounts and special offers to Tampa Bay Watch events
