Florida's Wildlife Legacy Initiative Implementation Goals

Florida’s Wildlife Legacy Initiative sets goals and measurable objectives for implementing the State Wildlife Action Plan. Implementation Goals direct the use of FWC resources including State Wildlife Grants and provide opportunities for partners to align conservation priorities to conserve Florida's fish and wildlife. Florida’s Wildlife Legacy Initiative revises the State Wildlife Action Plan along with the Implementation Goals approximately every five years. Regular updates allow for integration of new information, evaluation of priorities, and opportunity to engage with partners. This adaptive framework allows FWC and citizens to assess, learn from, and modify the Action Plan. The following Implementation Goals and objectives will be achieved through five State Wildlife Grant funding cycles, with projects beginning in 2019.

Implementation Goals target high priority needs that have a significant impact to the state’s Species of Greatest Conservation Need. While the objectives of each Implementation Goal measure a specific management action, they will also lead to an even more significant conservation benefit in the long term.
