Re Letters to the Governor of Florida in support of The Florida
Keys National Marine Sanctuary (FKNMS):

On January 28, the Governor and the Cabinet will sign a cooperative
agreement with NOAA to manage state waters (from the shore to three
miles) in accordance with the Management Plan of the FKNMS. 

If you care to, a short ONE PAGE letter urging support of the
Sanctuary and its Management Plan should be sent to:  

Governor Lawton Chiles
Office of the Governor
The Capitol
Tallahassee, FL 32399 USA
Fax: 904-921-6311

This is not just a Florida issue.  First, this is a NATIONAL marine
sanctuary.  Second, this is the first try in this country to manage
coastal resources under a comprehensive plan for so-called
"sustainable use."  It will be exemplary to the world (we hope a
GOOD example).  Those of you from other countries with success
stories in coastal management might mention these in the letter.

The Cabinet of Florida also votes: (address The Capitol as above)
