FWC July 20 workshop in Pasco County gives local governments ways to conserve gopher tortoises
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is holding regional workshops this summer to present information on opportunities for local governments to help conserve gopher tortoises in Florida.
The goal of these workshops is to identify ways cities and counties can participate in protecting one of Florida’s threatened species. In addition, the FWC will discuss financial incentives available for local governments.
A July 20 workshop is scheduled in Pasco County in southwest Florida, with representatives of local governments in nearby counties encouraged to attend.
