Speak Up for Florida’s Wild Animals

Speak Up for Florida’s Wild Animals

 

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is considering several changes to the state’s wildlife regulations that would affect freshwater turtles and captive wildlife. While these changes would be a step in the right direction, they are still not strong enough. Please urge the Commission to consider stronger changes to the rules.

Currently, the FWC is considering protections for Florida’s freshwater turtles by limiting the harvest to five per day. However, anything less than a complete moratorium on the commercial harvest could result in serious damage to some species. The Commission is also proposing beneficial changes to the current rules on keeping wild animals in captivity. But, the Commission needs to enact additional protections to ensure that these animals are kept in the wild, not in basements and backyards!

TAKE ACTION
The FWC will discuss these issues on September 17. Please take a moment now to send an email to the FWC to urge the strongest changes possible to these wildlife regulations. And don’t forget to tell your friends and family in Florida about how they can take action, too.

Jeanene was born in Pittsburgh, PA. As a young child her family was very active in the outdoors. Things changed when her parents decided to travel down different paths in life and with that decision so went many of the opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Being lucky to live in the suburbs Jeanene always had a backyard to play in and loved being outdoors. As the years passed she took every opportunity to be outdoors. She bought land in Tennessee and as a single mom moved her young daughter to the mountains. The were many life lessons learned on that mountain. There was no plumbing on the property – or even a house, but that did not stop her. She learned to live off of what was available and built her own cabin from the trees on her property. Those were rough years but the most rewarding. Now Jeanene resides in Tampa, Fl. and works as an office manager full time….but still yeans to be outdoors. Jeanene started “Not a Clue Adventures” to teach everyone she could how wonderful the outdoors are! That camping and fishing and hiking can be done by everyone and at many different levels. Single mom’s no longer have to be afraid to take their sons and daughters outdoors. By working with young couples, single parents and even seniors, she gets to teach others about her love for the outdoors and hopes to open their eyes to new adventures. In 2009, Jeanene completed certification as a Leave No Trace Instructor. She also works closely with the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF), Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) and the Florida State Parks. Jeanene is also certified in First Aid/Adult CPR.
