FWC officers: Protecting paradise

-A A +A

 By Katie Purcell

Do you enjoy going for boat rides, picnicking at state parks, deer hunting or bass fishing?

Many of Florida’s residents and visitors enjoy the state’s abundant natural resources. From the crystal clear waters of the Keys, to the vast Everglades to the rolling hills of the Panhandle – Florida is a unique and beautiful place. Fishing, hunting, boating and wildlife viewing are multimillion-dollar industries in the state.

We all want to be able to participate safely, conveniently and in a way that doesn’t harm the environment and wildlife.

Enter the officers of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). We all have a right to enjoy the outdoors, and with that comes a responsibility to protect the outdoors and the people and wildlife in it. FWC officers have been entrusted with the extra duty of being frontline guardians of these natural resources. They are responsible for “Protecting Paradise” for current and future generations to enjoy.

This column will tell how they do that.
