(FLORIDA FISH & WILDLIFE CONSERVATION COMMISSION) – Did you know we have a Coral Trafficking Task Force?

Florida’s Coral Reef is very important, so when one of our CTF investigators received information that large pieces of coral were seen drying out on a rental unit balcony, they immediately responded to the location.

It turns out it was staghorn coral, a species protected under the Endangered Species Act, making it unlawful to possess.

The individual was issued a notice to appear for violating the Endangered Species Act.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is a Florida government agency founded in 1999 and headquartered in Tallahassee.

It manages and regulates the state’s fish and wildlife resources, and enforces related laws.
