    GENERAL SUBJECT MATTER TO BE CONSIDERED: The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will be conducting a webinar/telephone conference to present the Florida Gulf Environmental Benefit Fund (GEBF) Draft Restoration Strategy. The Restoration Strategy is a National Fish and Wildlife Foundation funded science-based restoration planning effort coordinated by FWC and DEP with technical assistance from water management districts and FWC’s Fish and Wildlife Research Institute. It will serve as a framework for the development and implementation of projects under GEBF to restore and conserve Florida’s Gulf Coast natural resources. Participants who are not familiar with GEBF and its implementation in Florida and the history of the Restoration Strategy should review the background information, including the videos on the Restoration Strategy, available at http://www.dep.state.fl.us/deepwaterhorizon/gebf.htm prior to the webinar/telephone conference. The runtime of the four videos totals approximately 51 minutes.
