Citizen Call-In Day on June 6th and FWCC Meeting on June 7th

Hi Kelly,

On Tuesday, June 6th, please remember to call the FWC Commissioners and Governor Jeb Bush and say the following:

Please delay the decision on downlisting manatees and delisting bald eagles until the state fixes their imperiled species classification system.

Phone Numbers:

FWC Commissioners: 850-487-3796

Governor Jeb Bush: 850-488-7146

On Wednesday, June 7th, the FWC Commissioners will meet and vote on whether to downlist manatees in Florida. If you live in Florida, please attend:

West Palm Beach Marriott
1001 Okeechobee Blvd
West Palm Beach, FL 33401
Phone: 561-833-1234

There is no “time certain” for our issue, however, it appears from FWCC’s agenda that the manatee downlisting discussion and vote will come up on June 7 by early or mid afternoon.

If you plan to attend the meeting, please call Janice Nearing, Director of Public Relations, at 1-800-432-5646 or e-mail jnearing [at] savethemanatee [dot] org.

Thank you for helping on this critical issue for manatees!
