AUTHORS: Alexandra Perryman, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission

ABSTRACT: Implementable, action oriented, and time bound. These are all words that can be used to describe the new approach to Florida’s State Wildlife Action Plan (SWAP). The second revision of the SWAP is scheduled to be complete in 2017 and unlike the 2012 revision, which added new components to the original plan, an entirely new approach is being taken. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is working to simplify, standardize, and integrate the SWAP by aligning with the highest priorities for FWC and its partners. In addition to the statewide habitats, threats, and actions, a new regionally based approach is being incorporated to highlight important ecosystems and focal areas at a smaller scale. Additionally, by refining the role and purpose for the Species of Greatest Conservation Need (SGCN) list Florida will be able to focus resources on those species that are most imperiled with a goal of keeping species off the Endangered Species List. The ability to measure success is a critical component of all SWAPs. The actions within the revised SWAP are written at a 7 to 10 year scale and can be implemented with the current level of resources available. However, FWC is also preparing for the potential game changing success of the Blue Ribbon Panel. By incorporating actions of both small and large scale (regional/statewide), FWC is also laying the groundwork for successful conservation of Florida’s vital habitat and wildlife should dedicated funding become available.
