SCCF Named Conservation Organization Of The Year

SCCF (Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation) was presented the Conservation Organization of the Year award by the Florida Wildlife Federation (FWF) at the 77th annual conservation awards banquet in June at the Naples Hilton. SCCF “was selected to receive this award because of its outstanding accomplishments on water quality, land use policy, sea turtle monitoring, and conservation education, among other important issues.”

SCCF Executive Director Erick Lindblad, on accepting the award, paid tribute to those who founded SCCF in 1967 and to all who have worked since then to forward its mission to preserve coastal habitats and aquatic resources on Sanibel Island and Captiva Island and in the surrounding watershed.
