Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
Launches Internet Survey—Concerned about Endangered
and Threatened species? Want stronger wildlife habitat protection
policies? Let the Commission know how you feel. The FWCC has launched
an Internet survey asking Florida citizens to sound off on important
issues that affect the environment and how this often overlooked
agency carries out it’s mandate. To make your views known,
get on the Internet and go to: http://floridaconservation.org/
and select “Take the Survey.” We, as concerned Auduboners,
can’t sit back and say, “No one ever asks us.”
Take the survey!
National Audubon’s 2001 Bird Conservation
Annual Report—We received a hand full of copies of
National Audubon’s 2001 Bird Conservation Annual Report, which
highlights Audubon’s bird conservation work at the state,
national, and international levels. The focus of the report is on
Important Bird Areas and WatchList species. There is almost a full
page devoted to activities in Florida, when many states are not
even listed. This is a small measure of our concern for birds here
in the sunshine state.
Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival—The
Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival will be held at BCC in
Titusville, November 13–17. Please
