Conservation Commission Self analysis and consultation ReOrganization July 2004 Building a new agency 2005 New Guidelines and Promises Conserving Florida s natural resources in balance with human needs and usequot Stakeholder consultation StakeholderStakeholdercon ict Development amp Growth v Conservation amp Quality Higher expectations of service and ef ciency Partnerships amp external funding The Challenge One ofthe anomalies ofmodern ecology is the creation of two groups each of which seems barely aware of the existence of the other The one studies the human community almost as if it were a separate entity and calls its ndings sociology economics and history The other studies the plant and animal community and comfortably relegates the hodge podge of politics to the liberal arts The inevitable fusion of these two lines of thought will perhaps constitute the outstanding advance of this century Aldo Leopold 1935 mm Meme 1988 Human Dimensions How people value wildlife how
