Come learn all about the Apalachicola River and Bay, an internationally treasured ecosystem, at The Endangered Apalachicola – A National River Conference!
This 3-day conference, featuring preeminent scientists and policy experts, will immerse attendees into the ecological, legal, and political challenges facing Apalachicola Bay. Guests are invited to dive into cutting edge science on the 14th, learn about the latest twist to Florida’s legal challenge against Georgia on the 15th, and participate in a field trip on the Apalachicola River on the 16th. The Florida Conservation Coalition’s founder and Chair, former Florida Governor and US Senator, Bob Graham will host a special keynote dinner on Thursday.
The Apalachicola ecosystem is extraordinarily biodiverse, and is home to many imperiled species of wildlife including the Gulf sturgeon, Apalachicola dusky salamander, Florida manatee, bald eagle, swallow-tailed kite, Barbour’s map turtle, fox squirrel, and Florida black bear. Unfortunately, this ecosystem is struggling to survive as it is deprived from critical, nutrient-rich, fresh water. The future of this biological gem is dependent on the will of citizen advocates throughout Florida demanding change. Please join the Florida Conservation Coalition in raising awareness about the pressing issues facing the amazing Apalachicola in March!
