Land, water, air, space. The Daily Fray values a mixture of original reporting, special columnists, and online resources that aims for a better understanding of conservation, environment, and eco-lifestyle in Florida and in the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico, and Caribbean regions.
Motion. The skillful use and preservation of natural resources. Sugary beaches. Fresh and saltwater fishing, rare forests and animal life, crystal blue springs. An eye-popping menagerie of endangered species and ecological evil-doers. Clean energy. Green and socially responsible investing. Medical marijuana. The Fray seeks timely and visual stories about places of wildness, promise and resilience, action takers and difference makers, and uses social media to advance eco-journalism that makes people talk, think, and sometimes act.
