The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) is proud to announce Bank of the Islands as Presenting Sponsor of The Watch Party on Sept. 30, a fundraising event supporting SCCF’s community-based marine conservation program, Coastal Watch.
Bank CEO Geoff Roepstorff (right) and Bank President Robbie Roepstorff (left) are dedicated conservationists and community supporters. This sponsorship is their most recent demonstration of support for SCCF’s mission-driven work.
“As dedicated hunters committed to removing invasive pythons from the Everglades, we know the impact individuals can have in protecting our environment,” Geoff Roepstorff said of himself and Robbie Roepstorff. “The Watch Party is a great new way to support SCCF’s Coastal Watch program.”
Over the last year, Coastal Watch has planted nearly 1,300 mangrove seedlings and transported roughly 3,200 buckets of fossils and oyster shell to Hemp Key and Benedict Key for restoration efforts.
