This is just the beginning! Collaboration with supporting organizations and research institutions will continue to grow. We are fortunate to have a long list of supporters for the Florida Gulf Coast Hope Spot, many of whom are already involved in conservation, restoration, and education activities. Blue-Green Connections will coordinate brainstorming and information sharing sessions and facilitate the implementation of similar activities up and down the Florida Gulf Coast. Many thanks to all of these supporters!
