The CWCI is an FWC-led effort to improve collaboration within and among partner agencies, local governments, conservation groups, businesses, and other stakeholders on a host of issues related to coastal wildlife. The CWCI Coordinator works with regional partners to identify local focal issues, and the FWC’s Coastal Team provides technical expertise and works to address issues of statewide scale.
The CWCI began with a focus on regional working groups, but now working groups are developed as needs arise in local areas or statewide. In addition, CWCI team members are involved with many coastal partnerships and related working groups. Some of these partners are listed below.
