And most importantly, have fun doing them. More than just a great way to meet people, member organizations help keep property values high, indulge members’ special interests and talents, and help ensure the amenities and activities in Pelican Bay remain world-class.

Mangrove Action Group
The Mangrove Action Group (MAG) is dedicated to protecting the Clam Bay mangrove ecosystem that fronts the Pelican Bay community on the Gulf.
MAG was formed in 1996 by Pelican Bay residents who were concerned about a large area of stressed and dying mangroves in the northern end of the 570 acre Clam Bay preserve. Their concern led to a ten-year restoration plan that successfully reversed the mangrove die-off.
Despite the positive results of the restoration effort, new challenges have emerged. Protecting the Clam Bay ecosystem requires continuing vigilance. Today, the members of the Mangrove Action Group remain actively involved in efforts to:
- Monitor the health of the Clam Bay mangrove ecosystem in Pelican Bay and alert the appropriate officials of any problems.
- Educate Pelican Bay residents and others on the importance of mangrove ecosystems and the problems and threats facing them.
- Support scientific study of habitats and species in Clam Bay.
- Review and share data to support and promote the health of Clam Bay’s interrelated habitats and species.
- Advocate to local, state and federal entities for preservation and protection of Clam Bay’s wetlands and waterways with their naturally shallow tidal meanders.
- Support projects that maintain the natural characteristics of Clam Pass, its tidal creeks and lagoons.
- MAG is a not-for-profit Florida corporation with a charitable 501(c)3 designation from the Internal Revenue Service. Membership and other donations are tax-deductible. Contact MAG at: Mangrove Action Group, PO Box 770404, Naples, FL 34107.
