On April 5th at the Hilton Melbourne Beach Oceanfront Hotel, the Marine Resources Council of Indian River County will be hosting a banquet to award those who have put in extraordinary efforts for conservation. Among the sponsors for this important event will be David Heil, who has helped contribute to furthering this mission and supporting this most worthy of causes. As the years tick by and we begin to see the impact our actions have on the world around us, ensuring clean waterways has become more important than ever before.
The Mission of the MRC
The mission of the Marine Resources Council is to preserve our natural waterways with a particular focus on Indian River County. The organization got its start through a group of Florida Tech professors with a mission to clean up the negative environmental damage being inflicted upon the Indian River Lagoon. Their goal was to use hard scientific data to make intelligent decisions motivated mainly by facts.
Eventually, this group came together as the Marine Resources Council. They have continued to carry out their mission started in 1988 – the mission to “To improve water quality and to protect and restore the fish and wildlife resources of the Indian River Lagoon, coastal waters, inshore reefs, and the watershed by advocating and using sound science, education and the involvement of the public at large.” (savetheirl.org)
The organization carries out a wide variety of services to further its mission. Some of these services include growing new plant life native to the area and taking measurements on the state of the lagoon and ensuring its health. If things start to look unhealthy, MRC can sound the alarm and advocate for change that will have a positive impact on the community.
Protecting our environment is something that the law firm of David R. Heil aspires to help with. Many injuries and illnesses arise from the mismanagement of our resources. Keeping people our natural resources pristine helps to protect people from potential catastrophes. Everybody benefits from a clean waterway – from the restaurant whose risk is reduced when contaminated water is no longer a fear, to sports fishermen who do not have to worry about missing work because their weekend out caught them a sickness-inducing meal.
Our mission has always been to look after our community and this is just one of the many ways we do it. Personal injury law is one of those professions where, in the ideal world, it would no longer be needed because nobody would be injured due to the negligence of another. Working to make the world a better and safer place brings us closer to that goal, and a cleaner environment is just one way of doing that.
We would like to thank Marine Resource Conservation for their hard work over the years and the opportunity to help them in their cause. We want to wish them good luck in their future endeavors and, should any of their team need legal assistance, the law offices of David R. Heil stand ready to offer that assistance.
