Sign Petition By ‘One Protest’ Urging New Subaru Dealership To Find Alternative Location; One That Will Not Destroy 71 Acres Of Protected Wetlands In Florida

There is no question that animal welfare is one of the causes that Subaru supports.

As per its website, since 2015, Subaru retailers have partnered with local animal welfare organizations through the Subaru Loves Pets initiative to impact over 144,000 animals in need across the country.

“Whether they live in our homes or in the wild, Subaru is committed to keeping all animals safe and healthy,” the organization states.

That is why, the news that Subaru has plans to open a car dealership across 71 acres of Protected Wetlands in Florida, is as surprising as it is disturbing.

Adam Sugalski, Executive Director of OneProtest, shares his personal perspective on a petition he recently launched.

“As the owner of several Subaru vehicles and the founder of a non-profit organization that advocates on behalf of animals, humans, and the environment, I was shocked to learn that Subaru has plans to open a car dealership on the Wekiva River located in Florida,” Sugalski notes.

“I have supported Subaru over the years due impart to its environmental stance and sustainability practices. That is why I am sad to hear that Subaru has plans to open a car dealership on 71 acres of Protected Wetlands, clear-cutting at least 44 acres of precious forest that is home to a vast array of plants and wildlife,” continued Sugalski, who explained that he maintains a close relationship with the with people who work at his local Subaru dealership in Jacksonville. “I have driven my Subaru into many of Florida’s forests and wetlands. I have seen first-hand the devastating effects of deforestation.”

Ironically, Subaru also notes on its website that “loving the environment means more than loving the great outdoors, it means working to preserve it.”

In a powerful plea, Sugalski states that he has always believed that Subaru cared about saving this planet.

“I thought I was supporting a company that placed the planet over profit and found value in safeguarding its natural resources,” stated Sugalski. “If you follow through with your proposal, you are not the company that I thought you to be.”

Sugalski, whose advocacy recently resulted in the first-ever shore-based shark fishing rules in Florida, is requesting that Subaru stand behind its ecologically sound practices and help protect, not destroy one of the few natural spaces left in the state.
