Living on the Edge: CWCI Newsletter - Fall 2018

Living on the Edge


Welcome to the fall 2018 edition of Living on the Edge, the newsletter of the Coastal Wildlife Conservation Initiative! This is a quarterly newsletter to update Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) staff, partners and members of the public about Florida’s coastal issues, including current projects and other points of interest. Regular highlights include featured projects related to coastal wildlife, interviews with our staff or partners, special seasonal considerations, news and events, volunteer opportunities and current funding opportunities. If you are interested in spreading the word about your project or someone doing a fantastic job in coastal conservation, please contact CWCI Coordinator Fara Ilami at

The Coastal Wildlife Conservation Initiative is an FWC-led multi-agency strategy to address threats to coastal wildlife and habitats, while also considering human interests and uses of Florida’s coastal areas. The goal is a statewide cooperative process to protect coastal wildlife populations and conserve and manage coastal ecosystems, while achieving balance between conservation and opportunities for recreation, commercial activities and responsible development.
