Florida Forever

Governor Scott has recommended $75 million for Florida Forever in his FY 2013/2014 budget. The recommendation includes budget authority for $50 million from the sale of surplus state lands and $25 million in General Revenue for the purchase of conservation lands needed for springs protection, military buffering or water resource protection. Gov. Scott also recommended doubling the amount of funds available for Everglades restoration to $60 million. For more information on the budget and reactions to the recommendations, read articles in the Current and the News-Press.

The South Florida Water Management District is conducting a comprehensive assessment of its land holdings, including all conservation lands, to determine if any should be disposed of as surplus lands or used for other purposes. The District has been divided into five geographic regions for assessment. The Upper Lakes region will be evaluated first; an overview and maps of the lands have been posted. The District has not indicated which of these lands will be proposed for surplus; public comments are invited until Feb. 18. Visit the SFWMD Land Assessment page for details.

The Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council has released The Path Forward to Restoring the Gulf Coast as an initial step in developing a more detailed Comprehensive Plan. A draft plan will be published in Spring 2013. The Council will hold public listening sessions in all Gulf states for initial input into the Comprehensive Plan for restoration of the Gulf. The first listening sessions will be Feb. 19 in Mississippi; Feb. 19, 20, 21 in Lousiana, and Feb. 28 at 6 pm CT in Panama City, FL. See the announcement and for details.

The Florida listening session was planned to coincide with the meeting of the Florida Counties RESTORE Consortium, which will be held February 28, 1:00-4:00 p.m. CT in the Student Union East Conference Center, Second Floor, at Gulf Coast State College, located at 5230 W. U.S. 98, Panama City, FL. Consortium members are expected to discuss progress on preparing a joint Consortium and State Comprehensive Plan for Gulf restoration. State and Gulf Council representatives are expected to participate.

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is soliciting public suggestions for projects to be addressed in the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council's Comprehensive Plan. DEP will evaluate the projects with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, and Governor Scott will submit selected projects to the Council for consideration. The State will give priority to projects that address one of the following areas: stormwater/wastewater infrastructure, community resilience/living shorelines, water quality, implementation of best management practices, or fish and wildlife habitat and management. For more details, see the DEP web page. If you have a suitable project, complete the online project submittal form.

Audubon Florida recently started a Gulf restoration web page with information on activities of the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council and other groups involved in Gulf restoration. The page,, suggests ways the public can participate in the Gulf restoration process and includes a calendar of Gulf restoration meetings, with a request for the public to provide information on other meetings not listed.

A federal judge recently approved a plea agreement between the U.S. government and global oil giant BP. The agreement requires the company to pay $4 billion in fines to settle criminal charges stemming from the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig in April 2010. The disaster killed 11, injured dozens more and led to worst oil spill in U.S. history, with 4.1 million barrels of oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico from the company's Macondo well. See the Times-Picayune article for more information. The Environmental Law Institute has produced a fact sheet summarizing the details of the criminal plea agreement.

More than 1,000 scientists and public officials gathered in New Orleans in late January for the most comprehensive review of scientific information about the short- and long-term effects of the BP Deepwater Horizon accident and spill since it occurred in April 2010. The three-day Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill & Ecosystem Science Conference was aimed at understanding the effects of pollution resulting from the spill and its effect on natural systems in the Gulf and along the shoreline, and on the people who live and work there. Many questions remain to be answered on the impacts of this disaster. Some research indicates that one-third of the oil from the 2010 spill may be mixed with sea floor sediments. See the article and the Times-Picayune coverage for more information.

The FSU Coastal and Marine Lab's new research vessel has arrived. The 65-foot boat will be used by researchers from FSU, other universities and research institutes, and state and federal agencies to learn about the Gulf. You can tour the R/V Apalachee at the lab's biennial open house on April 20th.

The Florida Coastal Management Program online Guide to Coastal Accesses launched in February. Its interactive map gives you a birds-eye view of the coast or lets you zoom in to find your coastal interest. The guide pinpoints public access points around Florida’s entire coast from the northeastern-most point on the Atlantic to the westernmost point on the Gulf. Visit the website for an overview or go to the interactive map.

The Florida Coastal Management Program (FCMP), along with partners, has completed The Florida Assessment of Coastal Trends (FACT) 2010. FACT 2010 tracks the most recent changes in 65 indicators to illustrate how resources have responded to policies and activities implemented by coastal resource managers. One of the primary goals of the FACT is to provide decision makers across the state with another tool to help them effectively plan for the future of Florida's coastal zone.

Florida Forever

Florida's Water and Land Legacy initiative has nearly enough signatures to ask the Florida Supreme Court to review the language of the proposed constitutional amendment. If voters approve, the amendment will secure funds for critical water resources, natural areas, wildlife habitat, parks, greenways, and trails. Approximately 70,000 signatures are needed for review, and about 700,000 are needed to place the amendment on the November 2014 ballot. The amendment would dedicate one-third of the existing documentary stamp (doc stamp) tax for environmental land acquisition, management and restoration. No tax increase is involved, nor any new regulations; land would be acquired from willing sellers on a voluntary basis through existing programs such as Florida Forever, Florida Communities Trust and the Rural and Family Lands Protection Program. Visit for more information on the effort and to read the amendment language.

In its 2013-2014 budget request, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection proposes selling up to $50 million worth of state land and using the proceeds to buy additional conservation lands. The Florida Forever Coalition is supporting $100 million for Florida Forever for 2013. The Governor's Office is working on its recommended budget and has not said how much it will propose in Florida Forever funding.

Florida Forever - Acquisition and Restoration Council

At its October 11, 12 meeting, ARC heard public testimony on three projects being evaluated for potential addition to the Florida Forever/Board of Trustess Acquisition List and approved management plans for five properties. ARC received the Annual Land Management Review Team findings, the Land Management Uniform Accounting Council 2012 Annual Report, and the annual update on the status of conservation easements.

At its December 13, 14 meeting, ARC added three new projects to the Florida Forever Land Acquisition Priority List: Bluehead Ranch (Highlands County), Natural Bridge Creek (Walton County), and Pringle Creek Forest (Flagler County) and ranked all 119 projects on the list. Each project is in one of six categories on the list, and each category is ranked separately. For the Division of State Lands acquisition workplan, each category is then divided into high, medium and low priority groups. ARC's recommended Florida Forever Land Acquisition Priority List will go to the Board of Trustees for approval . ARC's voting sheet showing the rank assigned by each Council member is attached to the recommended list.

Also at its December meeting, ARC approved six management plans and an easement for a natural gas pipeline. A representative of the U.S. Air Force described the Gulf Regional Airspace Strategic Initiative (GRASI) Landscape Planning Initiative. For training purposes, the Air Force needs some air space with no on-ground development. ARC members discussed the potential benefit of cooperative efforts for both Department of Defense operations and conservation lands. One member suggested that DEP and ARC develop some compatibility guidelines, such as for wildlife and noise, and include these in management plans for areas within the flight paths.

Dr. Bill Palmer is the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's new appointee to ARC. Dr. Palmer, President and CEO of Tall Timbers Research Station and Land Conservancy, replaced Lane Green. Susan Grandin, formerly with The Preservation Law Group, Inc., and The Trust for Public Land, is the new Director of the Division of State Lands. Karl Rasmussen will assume the duties of the Assistant Director, in addition to his current duties as DEP Director of Cabinet Affairs.

The 2013 ARC calendar is below. ARC agendas and meeting summaries can be downloaded from the ARC calendar page.

South Florida Ecosystem Restoration - Everglades

The first phase of a long-awaited Florida Everglades restoration project appears to be stopping the loss of freshwater from the fragile ecosystem long choked and drained by neighboring development. The project is one of dozens that aim to restore the natural flow of freshwater through the Everglades into the ailing Florida Bay. Construction began on the so-called C-111 Spreader Canal in 2010. It plugs an existing canal and pumps 290 million gallons of water each day to build a kind of wall of water at the eastern edge of the Everglades National Park, which has lost too much water to a flood control system and other development in Miami-Dade County. See the Miami Herald article and the South Florida Water Management District fact sheet for more details.

The Everglades Coalition is requesting $100 million for Everglades restoration from the Florida Legislature; the Florida Department of Environmental Protection included $50 million in its budget request. The coalition also plans to approach Congress for federal funding to match the substantial funds Florida has invested in restoration. Gulf restoration funding is also a source being examined; the Everglades system contributes substantial flow to the Gulf through the Caloosahatchee River and Florida Bay. See the Sun Sentinel story for more coverage of the recent Everglades Coalition meeting and plans to jump start restoration of the Everglades.

The Central Everglades Planning Project (CEPP), a state-federal initiative to speed up planning for key restoration projects in the heart of the Everglades, held a project delivery team meeting on January 15 and will meet again January 23, 24. An overview of the project is available. Notices of upcoming meetings, public meeting transcripts, a fact sheet and other documents are available at Central Everglades Planning Project.

The restoration of the Gulf of Mexico has entered a new phase. The Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council held its initial public meeting December 11 in Mobile, Alabama. Council members said the proposed comprehensive plan for restoration of the Gulf of Mexico, to be released in January 2013, will be based in large part on the recommendations of the Gulf Coast Restoration Task Force (3.2MB). Public meetings will be held in late January and early February. A draft comprehensive plan will be out in the spring, with the initial plan due in July 2013. Additional information is available at

On January 3, 2013, the U.S. Department of Justice announced that it had reached a settlement with Transocean related to its conduct in the Deepwater Horizon disaster. The settlement totals $1.4 billion, with $1.0 billion in Clean Water Act civil penalties and $400 million in criminal penalties. Eighty percent of the Clean Water Act penalties will be distributed through the RESTORE Act. A court must approve the consent decree, which is open for public comment through January 30. The Environmental law Institute has prepared summaries of this proposed settlement and other Gulf restoration documents, including the RESTORE Act. The proposed settlement can be downloaded and other documents are listed here under Publications and Resources.

The State of Florida now owns 1541 acres at Escribano Point in Santa Rosa County and a conservation easement on 2336 acres in Walton County. The acquisitions were made by The Trust for Public Land, using part of Florida's $10 million share from the Deepwater Horizon disaster settlement between MOEX, the US Department of Justice and Gulf states. The lands were on the state's Florida Forever Land Acquisition Priority List. In addition to protecting natural resources, the acquisitions buffer Eglin Air Force Base and its operations. See the Current article for more details.

Phase II of the Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA) Early Restoration effort will fund two projects. A five-year, $4.7 million project will protect shorebird nests on beaches by posting signs and roping off areas to prevent the public from disturbing nesting areas in Florida, Alabama and Mississippi. Volunteers also will be staged near nesting sites to conduct bird and chick counts and protect birds from predators such as coyotes and racoons. A four-year, $4.3 million “Restoring the Night Sky” project will improve loggerhead sea turtle nesting habitat by reducing the amount of artificial light on shores in Florida and Alabama. For more information, see the Pensacola News Journal and Subsea World News articles. The executive summary and complete version of the Phase II Early Restoration Plan and Environmental Review are available to download.

Florida counties bordering on the Gulf of Mexico have formed a consortium to plan for and distribute RESTORE Act funds. These Florida counties will receive 7% of RESTORE funds. Florida will also receive an impact-based allocation from RESTORE. The consortium is organized through the Florida Association of Counties. To date, the consortium has mostly made organizational and administrative decisions. The next meeting is January 18 in St. Petersburg, FL. The following meeting is tentatively scheduled for February 22. Meeting summaries and briefing materials can be downloaded from the FAC RESTORE Act page. Most counties are setting up advisory committees to make recommendations on projects to be funded by RESTORE, when funds become available.

Oil from the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster would have killed coral reefs in the Florida Keys if the plume had reached that far south, especially when mixed with the dispersant Corexit 9500, according to a recently published study. The oil and dispersant from Deepwater Horizon likely damaged or killed coral reefs in the Gulf of Mexico. The Environmental Protection Agency approved BP using a dispersant to try to break up the oil slick before it reached land. The EPA had tested Corexit on fish and shrimp before clearing it for use. For more on this study, see the Tampa Bay Times article and the PLOS One paper.

Many of the Gulf of Mexico's problems don't start in the Gulf region. The Mississippi River system drains 40% of the Lower 48 States. Responsible management actions are needed from everyone living in the drainage. The Gulf Hypoxia project is one step to restoring the Gulf. The Iowa Nutrient Reduction Strategy, a project by the Iowa Department of Agriculture, uses science and technology to reduce particular nutrients that enter Iowa waterways and lead down to the Gulf of Mexico. This plan is unique in that it integrates Iowa services to pinpoint both point and nonpoint sources, the first plan of its kind to have such integration. See for more information.

A report on coastal habitat restoration estimates that America's coasts supply key habitat for over 75% of the nation's commercial fish catch and 80-90% of the recreational fish catch. In 2007, coastal counties provided half of the US gross domestic product and 40% of the nation's job. The report estimates that restoring the nation's coasts can create more than 30 jobs for each million dollars invested. The report can be downloaded from

China’s coral reefs have declined by 80 percent in the past three decades, destroyed by the consequences of economic development, finds a new international scientific study. The first comprehensive survey of the state of corals along mainland China and in the South China Sea gives a grim picture of decline, degradation and destruction resulting from coastal development, pollution and overfishing. For more, see the Environment News Service story.

The Australian government has formally proclaimed the world’s largest system of marine parks around its coastline. Establishment of the Coral Sea Marine Reserve of 989,842 square kilometers (382,180 square miles) creates a large, highly protected sanctuary zone of 502,238 square kilometers (193,915 square miles). Called the Coral Sea Marine National Park, it is the world’s second-largest highly protected marine reserve. The Coral Sea Marine National Park is the largest highly protected sanctuary within a country’s domestic exclusive economic zone. See the Pew Environment Group's press release to view a map of the reserve and photos of some of the animals there, including a sea dragon.

Between 700,000 and one million species live in the world's oceans, according to a new analysis, which also estimated that between one-third and two-thirds of those species have yet to be named and described. The new numbers are far smaller than previous estimates, which had put the tally of marine species as high as 10 million or more. Two thousand new marine species are being described every year. By coming up with a more accurate picture of what is and is not known about marine life, the study should help scientists better focus conservation efforts where they're needed most.
