December 1, 2011 — Florida Sea Grant Director Karl Havens received a two-year grant from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) to hire an education/outreach coordinator who will focus on the effects of sea-level rise on Florida’s unique and diverse coastal natural resources.
In addition to serving as the primary resource and clearinghouse of technical information for the program and the FWC, the sea-level rise coordinator will lead efforts to incorporate sea-level rise planning into FSG and FWC coastal natural resource programs. The coordinator also will develop education and outreach materials related to sea-level rise for use by FSG extension agents and FWC staff.
A search is underway at this time and the position is expected to be filled by early 2012. For more information, contact FSG Director Karl Havens.
