Florida Coastal Ocean Observing System Caucus Meeting 8
Addressing Community Needs through Ocean Science and Technology
Authored by: Caribbean Conservation Corporation and Sea Turtle Survival League, Clean Water Network of Florida, Environmental Defense, Natural Resources Defense Council, National Wildlife Federation, Reef Relief, Surfrider Foundation, The Ocean Conservancy
1. Strengthen controls on coastal development.
2. Reduce the pollution that degrades Florida’s waters, and maintain, if not improve, water quality standards.
3. Keep offshore oil drilling away from Florida’s economically valuable beaches.
4. End over fishing and preserve marine and coastal ecosystems.
5. Help Florida become a leader in reducing pollution sources, especially carbon dioxide emissions, that contribute to sea level rise and more intense hurricanes.
6. Strengthen governance by establishing unified, coordinated leadership for ocean and coastal resources.
