NOTE 1: The HMB Sargassum Project aims to raise 70% of the required funding from property owners in the "High Impact Zone” (HIZ) along the southern and central beachfront. We aim to raise the remaining 30% from friends & neighbors who love our unique community and want to help us protect our local marine life and pristine beaches.
NOTE 2: Funds raised on this website WILL NOT be applied to the cost of barrier maintenance.
Operational expenses will be invoiced separately to property owners in the HIZ
as an alternative to the manual beach removal services they already pay for.
