Dear Marine Resource Manager:


The Southeast Florida Coral Reef Initiative (SEFCRI), part of the Florida
Department of Environmental Protection’s Coral Reef Conservation Program, is
conducting an online survey targeting input from marine resource managers
about Marine Protected Areas.  If you have been or are currently involved in
the management of marine resources please read the announcement below. 


We apologize if you have already received a request to participate in this
survey; however we are trying to reach as broad an audience as possible.


Thank you in advance for your time and assistance



The Southeast Florida Coral Reef Initiative (SEFCRI) in conjunction with
Florida Atlantic University’s (FAU) Center for Environmental Studies (CES)
is conducting online surveys to evaluate the potential of a marine
management plan for Southeast Florida. Several surveys have been developed
to assess whether a management plan to further protect the coral reef
resources of Southeast Florida should be implemented. Coral reef resources
of the SEFCRI geographic region include those of Martin, Palm Beach,
Broward, and Miami-Dade counties of Florida. 

This survey is solely seeking individuals that have been involved in the
development of or are currently managing existing Marine Protected Areas
(MPAs). Questions in this survey were designed to address issues facing the
creation and management of MPAs and focuses on three primary areas: 

1.                             1.) Identification of factors critical for
creating an MPA. 

2.                             2.) Identification of factors that contribute
to a successfully managed MPA (both before and after implementation). 

3.                             3.) Identification of the factors that
contribute to an unsuccessfully managed MPA (both before and after

Please participate in this survey if you have been or are involved in the
management of marine resources. This information will be instrumental in the
protection of coral reef resources of Southeast Florida.

The survey will be available online until November 20, 2006.  If you have
