BOD Publishes Book on Ecotourism

Florida SEE Board Member, Dr. Carolin Lusby, has recently published a book titled, Destination Unknown: Sustainable Travel and Ethical Tourism, which is now available on Amazon and Scholar.

"It was an incredible experience working with the authors to bring forth this edition by highlighting the issues ecotourism faces, including impacts on the environment, culture, and residents. As the industry rebounds post-pandemic, this book gives space to imagine a more equitable and ethical industry."

Artificial Reefs in NW Florida

Florida has one of the most active artificial reef programs among the 15 Gulf and Atlantic coastal states involved in artificial reef development. The construction phase for the Florida Artificial Reef Creation and Restoration Project has been completed.

This endeavor involved the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) coordinating with local coastal governments to deploy prefabricated artificial reef modules within permitted locations in the Gulf of Mexico, offshore of northwest Florida between Pensacola and Mexico Beach.

Following the successful deployment of the artificial reef modules, monitoring will be conducted for a minimum of 3 years at each site to evaluate recreational use and condition of the reefs as well as the species inhabiting the reefs. Click here to read the complete press release.
