Coastal Wildlife Conservation Initiative Meeting Sept 7th

The Coastal Wildlife Conservation Initiative (CWCI) will have a meeting hosted by our Brevard County Extension office in Cocoa on September 7th. The CWCI is a FWC-led multi-agency strategy to address threats to native wildlife and their habitats in coastal ecosystems, while including human interests and the values placed upon Florida's coastal areas. The goal is a statewide, cooperative process to provide for greater consistency and coordination to:
  • Protect coastal wildlife populations
  • Conserve and manage coastal ecosystems
  • Achieve balance between conservation and opportunities for recreation, commercial activities, and responsible development
If you're interested in learning more about CWCI, the partnership strategy, and help identify coastal area issues of concern please register at If you have questions or would like additional information contact Laura DiGruttolo, CWCI Coordinator, or 386-758-0525 or myself.
