Social Media

Social Media Comment Policy – Revised in 2023

The purpose of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) social media sites is to promote the conservation of Florida’s wildlife and natural resources, outdoor recreation and public safety.

We welcome comments, but once posted, the FWC reserves the right to report, hide or delete submissions that:

  • contain vulgar language
  • contain personal attacks of any kind
  • target or disparage any ethnic, racial or religious group
  • are spam or include links to other sites;
  • are clearly off topic;
  • are repetitive comments or posts from the same individual;
  • are potentially libelous (false statements);
  • are obscene or explicit;
  • are hateful or mean-spirited;
  • advocate illegal activity;
  • promote particular services, products, or political candidates or organizations;
  • infringe on copyrights or trademarks;
  • embed images from external sources;
  • include private or personal information;
  • contain gory or disturbing imagery;
  • contain drugs or alcohol;
  • threaten, bully or harass; or
  • threaten the safety or security of the public or public systems.

Activity on all FWC social media sites is subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws regulations and policies. You must also comply with all terms of use established by the service providers themselves.

We receive a large volume of public comments and private messages and may not respond to every comment or message. If needed, please feel free to contact your closest regional office for assistance:
