legacy_keepcommonspeciescommonPlease come to the Friends of Florida Environmental Club Science Lecture Series presentation at
SPC’s St. Petersburg/Gibbs Campus Thursday, September 10th 2009, 12:30 until 1:30 pm.

The presenter, Andrea Alden, Marine Wildlife Legacy Biologist with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Wildlife Legacy Initiative will discuss red tide research, sea grass restoration and will include general information pertinent to Tampa Bay conservation efforts.

Ms Alden is responsible for coordinating and implementing Florida’s Wildlife Legacy Initiative within marine habitats.  Her work focuses primarily on supporting regional and statewide coral reef and sea grass conservation and restoration.

The goal of the Florida Wildlife Legacy Initiative is to prevent wildlife from becoming endangered before they become more rare and costly to protect. Rather than rules and regulations, the Initiative creates partnerships to take action.

The September 10, 2009 presentation will take place in the SP/G Natural Sciences Building, room SC236 from 12:30 until 1:30 pm.  Light refreshments will be provided.

who we are:

Early in 2008, St. Petersburg College recognized its responsibility to model to our students, employees and community ways to minimize global warming emissions and provide the knowledge to our graduates to help achieve a more environmentally friendly future. Because of this, the College made sustainability (defined as meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs) a top priority. As a result, the Office for Sustainability was established.

what we do:

Working alongside internal and external partners, the Office for Sustainability focuses on the following areas of environmental stewardship: educational programs and corporate training, energy and natural resource conservation, green buildings and facilities, carbon emissions, recycling and student activities.
