In October of 2005, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) completed its Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy, more currently recognized as the State Wildlife Action Plan (Action Plan). The Action Plan is part of a nationwide framework for proactively conserving our fish and wildlife including their habitats. Detailed in the pages was a commitment to revisit the plan every five years, with 2010 marking the beginning of a revision period.
As part of our longstanding commitment to working with stakeholders, partners, and the public, the FWC welcomed input and comments on the revised Action Plan throughout the month of August 2011. Thanks to everyone who submitted comments! Following the comment period, the FWC reviewed all feedback received and edited the draft Action Plan. The revised Action Plan was submitted to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) for review in October, 2011. Once approval from USFWS is received, the complete, revised Action Plan will be finalized and made available on this website.
Visit the Action Plan Revisions page for more information about the revision process, Frequently Asked Questions, a recording of our public webinar and other resources.
