The Climate Adaption and Mitigation Center, which focuses on the impacts of climate change in Florida—including red tide and harmful algal blooms, hurricanes and sea level rise—recently received tax-exempt status from the IRS. The organization is currently trying to raise $2 million into building a curated database of peer-reviewed science to inform decision-making in academia, government and the private sector. The database will be accessible via a website that the center plans to build using donor contributions, and also plans to hold a conference series about climate change in the future, with the first one in April of this year. It held its first conference, a sold-out event titled "Global to Local: Adapting to a Warming Climate Conference," in February 2019.
