Inaugural Florida Wildlife Corridor Summit Will Convene Conservationists from Across State
The Florida Wildlife Corridor Foundation will host its first-ever multi-day Summit April 12-14, 2022. This three-day, invitation-only event will welcome leaders in conservation and business from around the state for a chance to share knowledge and best practices, explore solutions, and be inspired to work together toward shared goals.
“The challenges facing wild Florida are intensifying, and this summit will offer a unique opportunity for partners and peer organizations to work together to find varied solutions and share ideas and innovations toward achieving conservation and connectivity goals for the entirety of Florida. Preserving the Corridor is key to the future of Florida’s green infrastructure, and this event presents us with a unique opportunity to continue moving forward to achieve this ambitious connected conservation vision while we still have a chance. The successes in the last year make this an ideal time to coalesce and determine the best ways to harness the energy and momentum as we work to protect the Florida Wildlife Corridor,” said Mallory Dimmitt, CEO of the Florida Wildlife Corridor Foundation.
The past year has brought great progress for Florida conservation, including the signing of the Florida Wildlife Corridor Act in summer of 2021, which recognized the ecological values of nearly 20 million acres of land in Florida and provided a framework and incentives for safeguarding it. However, the past year has also seen huge growth and development within this state, with approximately 1,000 new people moving here every day. This summit offers an opportunity for the conservation and preservation communities to collaborate and work together toward one common goal – establishing a wildlife corridor and preserving Florida’s remaining wild spaces.
The event is invitation-only. Please direct any questions or media requests to Lucy Curtis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
