Suncoast CISMA

Suncoast Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area

Mission Statement

"Our mission is to address the threat to native diversity within the Suncoast Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area by coordinating and increasing efforts to eliminate or reduce invasive, non-native plants and animals across public and private boundaries."

Pet Amnesty Day

Exotic animals over much of Florida are causing drastic changes to our ecosystem. FWC set up this program to help exotic pet owners that can no longer give the optimum care for their pet. I am working with staff at Boyd Hill Nature Preserve, Suncoast CISMA & FWC to host this Event at Boyd Hill Nature Preserve on (Saturday) July 13th, 2013. Donations of animals will be taken from 10 am to 2 pm, while animals can be adopted starting after 2pm. In order for this Event to run smoothly, volunteers will be needed to help with donations and adoptions of exotic animals. Dogs and cats will not be accepted.
