We are pleased to announce the 3rd partners meeting for the Peninsular Florida Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC). As a reminder, the first two meetings were designed to describe the purpose and proposed function of LCCs, discuss potential outcomes and benefits including integration of efforts and sharing of resources and to evaluate the potential for the PFLCC to serve as a forum to discuss mechanisms and needs for conserving and sustaining Florida wildlife, habitats and landscapes in the face of numerous stressors. The purpose of the upcoming meeting is to highlight progress since the last partner meeting, to provide updates on recent conservation initiatives and to start the process to identify partners who would be willing to serve on an interim steering committee to help shape the direction and scope of the LCC. On June 20th, Tim Breault was hired to be the LCC coordinator. Having a dedicated staff position should accelerate progress towards creating a functional LCC partnership. Of interest, this position represents a partnership in that it is being co-funded by the US Fish and Wildlife Service and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
The meeting will be held in Ft. Myers on October 12, 2011 at the South Florida Water Management District’s Lower West Coast Service Center. We hope see all of you there, but in the event you have a conflict or cannot attend, we would encourage you to send a delegate. As an additional request, please feel free to invite others who may not be on this list.
