The Florida Keys Audubon Society’s speaker series will kick off for the season this Wednesday, November 1, at 6:30 p.m. at the Key West Garden Club, 1100 Atlantic Boulevard.
The speaker will be Pete Frezza, Research Manager for the Everglades Region at Audubon Florida. Frezza has worked in the Keys for 20 years as a scientific researcher, backcountry fishing guide and conservationist.
Frezza will be speaking about ‘Marine Zoning Works for Me’, a locally coordinated group encouraging community input for the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary’s current marine zoning and regulatory review process. The group advocates for marine zoning as a fundamental, easy to implement, cost-effective way to protect the birds and game fish who rely on local waters.
Frezza will also speak briefly about Hurricane Irma’s immediate and potential long-term effects on the Upper Keys and Florida Bay environments.
Admissions is free and open to anyone who is interested.
