A birds-eye-view of the forest often reveals a magnificent pool of freshwater emerging from the aquifer below.

Advocate Apparel Inspired by the Floridan Aquifer and springs

Florida evokes daydreams of white sandy beaches and palm trees – but perhaps the most magnificent water in Florida lies just out of sight. In the Sunshine State, water fills the limestone cavities of the Floridan aquifer beneath our feet. This is the source of drinking water for 92% of Floridians. But this water is not always hidden - where it finds its way to the surface, it forms marvelous freshwater springs, which support not only human life in Florida but also incredibly diverse and unique aquatic ecosystems. In fact, Florida is home to the highest density of freshwater springs in the world – more than 1,000 of them dot the karst landscape of the sunny peninsula.

Unfortunately, increasing development and growing pressures on water resources are having negative impacts on Florida’s springs. Over the past 15 or 20 years, Florida’s burgeoning population has had a plethora of consequences for the springs, namely decreases in flow due to over-pumping and a transition from native underwater grasses to nasty algae. Nitrate levels in the springs have skyrocketed and ecosystem dynamics have changed as food webs are altered.

Most beautiful sun shirt on the planet

I bought the Fountain of Youth shirt for my daughter who is a dive master in Raja Ampat. We did 17 dives in 6 days and every time I saw her in the shirt I thought to myself "This must be the most beautiful dive shirt on the planet". I have beautiful pictures to back up my claim :-)

Super cool, great fit, quality construction

This shirt fits, and functions perfectly to protect my skin from the sun and the board. I can see that the quality of the construction and the material will make it last a lot longer than any other rash guard I have ever had. The best part though is the beautiful print and how connected I feel to the ocean through its purchase. Thank you waterlust for all that you do!

So far I like it but will test it on the water this week. I am a little disappointed that not all designs are available in both cuts. Also, why not put a ponytail hole in the “mens’” version too?
