FNPS Board of Directors:

As a member of the Florida Forever Coalition, FNPS is making strides towards our mission in the most direct way possible.  A couple of weeks ago, I sent you a copy of the Economic Benefits of Land Conservation  paper put out by the Florida Forever Coalition and written primarily by The Nature Conservancy staff.  I’ve attached another copy here.
Below are comments from Governor Crist’s Cabinet CFO Alex Sink regarding the Economic Benefits report that you can use in your outreach programs.

The mission of the Florida Native Plant Society
is to promote the preservation, conservation
and restoration of native plants and native
plant communities.

  Protecting and preserving Florida’s natural resources with Florida Forever

The financial benefits Florida receives from its natural habitats and protected conservation lands were documented in new report released this month by The Nature Conservancy titled “Economic Benefits of Land Conservation: A Case for Florida Forever”.

“As Florida’s Chief Financial Officer, I am constantly on the look out for what’s in the best interest of Florida’s economy.  As this new report by The Nature Conservancy and other environmental groups shows, protecting and preserving Florida’s natural resources with Florida Forever is a great economic driver for our state,” said CFO Alex Sink..  “Florida Forever creates jobs and put billions of dollars into our state’s economy, showing that when we protect our state’s natural treasures, we’re really protecting our state’s economic treasures as well.”
