our environment

As custodians of one of the most diverse ecosystems in the country, Port Everglades remains steadfast in its dedication to careful, ecologically sound growth. Broward County’s leaders recognize that maintaining a careful balance between commerce and the environment is essential for the region’s well-being.

Our goal is to ensure the long-term interest of both the maritime community and the fragile environment within and around the Port by adhering to stringent governmental regulations, employing best management practices, careful study, and advancing progressive remedial and protective measures.
