This film is narrated by Homer Groening. He discusses water quality in Florida and the impact of pollutants on aquatic animals and organisms. Groening interviews Dr. Jay Hormic, from the Marco Marine Applied Ecology Station on Marco Island, about water quality and the environment around Marco Island. They discuss: the "tire reefs," created in the Gulf by the Goodyear Tire Company for the purpose of repopulating fish around the island; the brown pelican population, and the role that Florida's ban on DDT played in preserving it; the lack of success with eagle "trays" in encouraging bald eagles to nest in and around Marco Island; and the positive and negative effects of development on the Island. Produced by Johnson Outboards and Deltona Corporation.
