Corporate Agriculture

Thousands of acres of agricultural land in WWALS’ watersheds have been bought in recent years by investors from the west coast, the most by Bill Gates. This is part of a nationwide buying spree in which Gates has bought upwards of 250,000 acres nationwide. On WWALS’ 2015 Goals, number 12 is: “Raise awareness about corporate agricultural land acquisitions and practices as they affect WWALS watersheds and the Floridan Aquifer”.
