On Jan 23 at the Old Courthouse in Ft. Myers
the FFWCC will be meeting on the downlisting of the manatee. It is vital
that all of us be present at this meeting, to urge our FFWCC to take a
strong stand against what the federal government is doing to the economy
of this state. We should be urging FFWCC to sue the federal government
over its use of the Marine Mammal Protection Act to shut down our state!
At this point, the "listing" of the manatee is a federal issue
so Florida’s downlisting is secondary to the intrusion of the federal
government into our state’s waters.
STANDING WATCH urges its members, who can attend, to plan
to attend the January 23 session of the FFWCC meeting. We urge you to
sign in at the front desk of the meeting and plan to meet with Standing
Watch Board Members to discuss the strategy of how your comments will
be made to the Commission.
