Partnership provides Florida FWC employees with conservation award

The Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation has announced a partnership with the Fish & Wildlife Foundation of Florida and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to recognize FWC employees with an award for marine conservation efforts.

The GHOF seeks to fund scientific research and innovative educational programs to encourage conservation and best management practices for sustainable marine environments.

Nominees for the award have distinguished themselves through exemplary service and dedication to the conservation of Florida's natural marine resources. The award is presented during FWC meetings.

"Working closely with the Fish and Wildlife Foundation of Florida and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, we are recognizing those individuals who have a profound impact on managing the state's fish and wildlife resources," said artist, conservationist, scientist and angler Guy Harvey in a statement. "We welcome the opportunity to support those who share our vision as we continue to promote the conservation of our oceans and nurture the next generation of guardians of our seas."

Honorees receive a $1,000 honorarium from the foundation and a two-night stay at a Guy Harvey Outpost Resort.
