Saturday, May 13th at 1:30pm: “Protecting Plants and Wildlife at Boca Chica Naval Base” is the topic presented by Matthew Martin, Natural Resource Manager, Naval Air Station Key West.
Martin is a conservation biologist whose previous experience includes National Park Service, EPA, and Fish and Wildlife. These assignments took him to diverse East-coast habitats where he worked on projects involving many threatened or endangered species from land, air and water.
Large swaths of Lower Keys’ habitat lie within restricted military reserves. It may be reassuring to learn that NAS Key West has environmental initiatives in support of protecting, preserving, and conserving our natural environment.
