HOLD THE DATE

JUNE 25, 2009 
 
TEAMING WITH WILDLIFE MEETING
 
Teaming with Wildlife is a coalition of people and organizations working to prevent wildlife from becoming further endangered. Climate Change will only add to the risks already confronting our native species. It will require an unprecedented effort, by all stakeholders, to tackle what many are calling “the issue of our generation.”
 
REVISED AGENDA FOR TEAMING WITH WILDLIFE MEETING, JUNE 25, 2009 IN TALLAHASSEE:
 
Due to overwhelming interest in the Teaming with Wildlife workshop, we have decided to re-schedule a portion of the workshop's activities in early September when more people will be able to attend.  We may consider an alternative location as well to ensure the greatest attendance possible.
We are STILL on for June 25th with an abbreviated however still incredibly important meeting. We hope you will join us for both events.
If you have already rsvp'd for June 25th please look at this revised agenda to be sure it meets your expectations. If you have not already indicated your plans to attend please let Jay Liles know by June 22 at jliles@fwfonline.org .
 
Thank you again for your interest.

Meeting Focus:
At this meeting we will discuss the latest on climate and energy legislation currently before Congress. We will work with representatives of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission as they develop changes to the State Wildlife Action Plan to address wildlife adaptation to climate change.
 
Teaming with Wildlife supports:
  • Improving the leadership of state fish and wildlife agencies by advocating for fish and wildlife conservation and promoting cooperation among fish and wildlife agencies. 
  • Teaming with Wildlife builds support for Florida’s Wildlife Action Plan (an important framework for dealing with impacts to wildlife from Climate Change) and other state wildlife conservation programs.
  • Identifying and promoting opportunities for state fish and wildlife agencies to collaborate with partners on implementation of the state wildlife action plan.
There are more than 150 Teaming with Wildlife Coalition members on the Florida Team today. Through their efforts, Florida has secured nearly $23 million dollars in wildlife protection funding. In 2009, Congress is poised to pass meaningful legislation to curb Greenhouse Gases and mitigate the impacts of Climate Change. Now, through efforts like Teaming with Wildlife, we can help guide that debate.
