                                                   efficiency, he has pledged that there will be zero emissions from federal buildings
                                                   by 2050, and carbon neutrality for all new buildings by 2030. Obama has set a
                                                   national goal of improving new building efficiency by 50% and existing building
                                                   efficiency by 25% over the next ten years to help meet the 2030 goal. This
                                                   commitment, if carried out, will impact builders and developers who will need to
                                                   meet energy efficiency standards, and industries that will need to comply with

                                                   EPA and the courts have been struggling for years with two issues: (1) the scope
                                                   of federal jurisdiction over “navigable waters” and wetlands under the Clean
                                                   Water Act (“CWA”) and (2) whether pollution discharge permits are required for
                                                   inter-basin water transfers. The Obama administration may take a different
                                                   approach than its predecessor on both issues.
                                                   Conclusion
                                                      President-elect Obama has outlined ambitious environment and energy
                                                   priorities. Those plans broadly and sharply differ from the Bush Administration’s
                                                   approach on many issues, most notably climate change, energy, use of public lands,
                                                   and the Endangered Species Act. In light of the priority that these issues were
                                                   given in the just-completed 2008 campaign, we are likely entering a period of rapid
                                                   change in the nation’s environmental laws.

  District asks homeowners to "skip a week" of irrigation in cooler weather
   In an effort to conserve water during the ongoing drought, the Southwest Florida
Water Management District is encouraging residents who irrigate their lawns to "skip a
week" during the cooler months of December, January and February.
According to research by the University of Florida, grass doesn't need to be watered as
often during the cooler months. In fact, three-quarters of an inch of water every 10–14
days is sufficient.
   “The cooler months are a good time to train lawns to need less water," said Sylvia Durell, Florida-friendly
landscaping project manager. “Using less water will encourage deeper grass and plant roots, which makes them more
drought-tolerant."
Over-watering can also encourage disease and pests.
Homeowners can determine when their grass needs water when:
            • Grass blades are folded in half on 30 percent of the lawn
            • Grass blades are blue-gray
            • A footprint remains on the lawn for several minutes after walking on it
   The region is experiencing the effects of a three-year drought and October through May is Florida’s dry season.
All 16 counties within the District are under one-day-per-week lawn watering restrictions through Feb. 27, 2009. In
addition, tightened restrictions are currently in affect for all of Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties through
June 30, 2009.
   Skipping a week of irrigation will help conserve drinking water supplies. Following this skip-a-week plan saves water
that the public needs for other critical uses during the dry season.

                                      FWC will not release non-migratory whooping cranes in the future
                           The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) will discontinue the release of
                           whooping cranes into Florida's non-migratory flock. The FWC accepted the recent
                           recommendation from the multi-agency International Whooping Crane Recovery Team.
                               The team created the release program 15 years ago in an effort to establish a self-
                           sustaining, non-migratory whooping crane population in Florida. Naturally-occurring whooping
                           crane populations in the southeastern United States disappeared by the 1930s. Scientists
                           decided to stop releasing cranes into the non-migratory flock for a variety of reasons,
                           including problems with survival and reproduction, both of which have been complicated by
                           drought. Additional considerations included shorter-than-expected life spans, scarcity of

                           birds for release, project costs and the loss of habitat from development.
   The team felt that project resources and birds produced in captivity could be better used for other whooping
crane releases as well as to maintain the captive flock. "It was a tough decision," said FWC biologist Marty Folk.
"Many people were involved, but most agreed that this was the right decision and the right time to make it."
From 1993 to 2004, biologists released 289 captive-raised, non-migratory
whooping cranes into Osceola, Lake and Polk counties in Central Florida. The
last releases took place in winter of 2004-2005. FWC biologists will
continue to study the remaining 31 birds.
   The FWC was the lead agency in Florida in the cooperative effort to
establish a non-migratory flock. Major partners included the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service, U.S. Geological Survey, the Canadian Wildlife Service and
the International Crane Foundation.
   As a member of the Whooping Crane Eastern Partnership, the FWC
continues its involvement with a separate project to reintroduce migratory
whooping cranes in the eastern United States. This flock migrates from
Wisconsin to Florida each year. In the coming year, biologists will release
20 additional whooping cranes into the current flock of 68 birds.

In the past year the Tampa Bay Association of Environmental Professionals has been expanding our contacts with local area
universities. We now have student chapters at University of Tampa, Eckerd College, USF St. Pete, and soon, USF Tampa. Our
goal is to establish student chapters at all of the colleges in the region and to facilitate the exchange of information between the
students and employers. We continue to provide the student chapters with a list of employers that have internship and job
shadowing opportunities as well as entry-level positions.

Does your organization have an internship, job shadowing or entry-level position available?                    Please respond to

                                     Mapping Threats to Florida Freshwater Habitats
    The FWC Commission’s Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy (CWCS) is an action plan for conserving the state’s
wildlife and natural areas. In 2005 the CWCS identified 27 threats to Florida’s freshwater habitats. Creating a comprehensive
database of threats is an essential step toward achieving the overall goals of improving strategic habitat conservation planning
and addressing causes of low abundance and decline of species in aquatic habitats.
   This project used a Geographic Information System (GIS) to assemble a statewide geographic collection of map-based data
representing 15 of the 27 threats. The information collected regarding the 15 threats was used to determine the relative level of
individual threats to each subwatershed (Hydrologic Unit Code [HUC] 12 unit) within Florida. A subwatershed is a smaller basin
within a larger drainage area where all of the surface water drains to a common point of the larger watershed.
   The map data layers and resulting composite indices show information across the entire state but are summarized at a
subwatershed level. A map data layer consists of a single theme such as elevation or locations of waste water treatment plants.
Viewed together these data layers paint a picture and can be analyzed to examine relationships to help answer questions.
Therefore, it is possible to both discover regional patterns and also identify conditions at a more local level. Managers and
researchers can use this threat information along with consideration of both the permanence of the threat and its impact on the
five indicators of ecological integrity to begin further study into the issues affecting a particular freshwater ecosystem.
    Based on the composite index map, a distinct trend of increasing threat level is evident progressing from northwest Florida to
the east and south. At a regional scale, road density dominates as the most common reason for high threat values in northern
Florida. Agriculture dominates in the west-central region and waterway modification dominates in east-central and southern
Florida.
This multi-scale assessment is effective at both highlighting local conditions which may warrant further investigations and
illustrating regional trends. These data may be obtained by downloading a 261 MB archive, by emailing GISRequests@MyFWC.com,
or by calling (850) 488-0588.

                                        NASA DUCKS DIVE UNDER GREENLAND ICE
                                 The US space agency (NASA) would like its rubber ducks back, please.
                                    Ninety bathtub toys were hurled into a drainage hole on the Greenland ice in September - an experiment to
                                 see how melt waters find their way to the base of the ice sheet. It was hoped the ducks would flow along
                                 subglacial channels and eventually pop out into the sea. They may still, but nothing has been seen of them so
                                 far. "We haven't heard anything from them yet," said NASA's Alberto Behar. "If somebody does find one, it
                                 will be a great breakthrough for us."
                                    Dr. Behar is a robotics expert with the agency at its Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena. He has been
studying the tubular crevasses that appear on the surface of the Greenland ice known as moulins. These
"plug holes" can drain vast lakes of melt water that settle on the top of the ice during summer months.
Scientists would like to know how and to what extent this water can help lubricate the base of the ice
sheet, moving it faster towards the ocean. If plastic fowl seem a very low-tech way for a man who has also
worked on Mars rovers to investigate the problem, it should be stressed he also has a more sophisticated
approach.
 Dr. Behar has been developing a Moulin Explorer, a probe that can travel through the chutes. Dr. Behar
                     started out with a simple ice borehole camera on the end of a tether and then gradually built up the instrumentation and
                     improved the packaging so that the probe moved more easily with the waters. "We've found the moulins are complex;
                     they're not just a shaft that goes all the way down to the bottom and creates a pipe out in a certain direction," he told
                     BBC News. "There are stair-steps and there are breaks in the ice where it seems the water goes in many directions and
                     then comes back together."
                        This past summer season, he finally released an untethered Explorer into a moulin alongside the great Jakobshavn
                     outlet glacier in West Greenland - together with those ducks. The PVC cylinder - about the size of an American football -
                     contained an accelerometer, a pressure transducer, GPS with satellite modem link, and an antenna; all powered by high-
capacity lithium thionyl chloride batteries.
   Like the ducks, the Explorer was supposed to pop out somewhere having gone through the subglacial plumbing. It was also supposed to call
home. "We did not hear a signal back so it probably got stuck under the ice somewhere," said Dr. Behar. "It was a bit of a long shot but we
thought it was worth a try. We've got to go back and scratch our heads and think about what we do next." Even seeing a few ducks emerge
from their subglacial adventure would give some clues as to what is happening down below. These are early days. In the distant future, the
descendents of the Moulin Explorer could be deployed by NASA on icy moons in the outer Solar System that are thought to harbor subglacial
oceans.
 There seems little doubt that draining melt waters can lubricate the ice-rock interface at the bed of the Greenland sheet; surges in the ice
have been recorded when large surface lakes have suddenly emptied through moulins. But scientists are more circumspect about the waters'
contribution to the acceleration noted in some of Greenland's outlet glaciers which - like Jakobshavn - have doubled their speed in recent
years.
  These outlet glaciers are the major route through which Greenland dumps its ice into the ocean. If there is to be concern about the
Greenland ice sheet's contribution to future sea level rise in a warmer world, it is the behavior of these glaciers which needs to be monitored
most closely. And recent research has given interesting perspectives on this issue.
   Earlier this year, Ian Joughin from the University of Washington and colleagues analyzed satellite observations and GPS data on ice motion
from across a wide swathe of Greenland. They found that summer surface melting was not producing large instabilities in the glaciers. "In
percentage terms, the speed-up of the ice sheet is somewhat large - 50 to 100% in summer months - but that part of the ice sheet isn't
moving that much ice into the ocean. The area that's moving the ice into the ocean a lot is the big outlet glaciers and they're not being
affected much by the melt lubrication."
   In the case of Jakobshavn, Dr. Joughin takes the view that the more significant influence is the presence of sea ice in front of the glacier.
This has been largely absent in recent years, allowing the great mass behind to move much faster into the ocean, he says. "The speed of the
glacier is modulated by calving and sea ice seems to shut down calving," explained Dr. Joughin.
   David Holland, from New York University, and colleagues implicate the deep warm waters that now inhabit the fjords dominated by these
big glaciers. Dr. Holland's team has been using a long data-set of thermometer readings gathered by fisheries researchers studying sea-bed
conditions in the Jakobshavn region. They have been able to show how changes in atmospheric circulation in the North Atlantic could have
driven deep warm waters around the southern coast of Greenland from as far away as Iceland. "In the case of Greenland, the water around
the coast at depth, from 200m to 600m - it was relatively cold until 1997 and then within six months the whole thing lit up on the west coast
and became warm - almost dramatically so - and filled these deep fjords. It put things out of balance," Dr. Holland told BBC News.

                         NFL GREENS SUPER BOWL WEEK FOR THIRD CONSECUTIVE YEAR
                                           Tampa Electric Company (TECO) announced that it will provide green power for 100%
                                        of the electricity needs of Super Bowl XLIII on February 1, 2009. Under the agreement,
                                        TECO will supply Florida-based renewable energy for the game at the Raymond James
                                        Stadium in Tampa Bay, as well as the five-day NFL Experience festival, for a total of
                                        187,000 kWh. The renewable energy will be sourced in part from biomass and solar
                                        power. The purchase was made possible by state regulators’ recent approval of a new
                                        offering that allows TECO to sell blocks of renewable energy to customers for one-time
                                        events.
                                           To help offset the game’s carbon impact, the National Football League (NFL) will also
                                        plant 2,700 trees at a dozen sites in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties, in partnership
with the U.S. Forest Service, the Florida Division of Wildlife, and the Florida Division of Forestry. The NFL’s environmental
program began in 1992 with recycling and has expanded to include green power and urban forestry.

                            2008 Nest Survey Results Do Not Change Turtle Nesting Trends
                 Despite an increase in loggerhead sea turtle nest counts in 2008, the long-term decline in nesting continues.
                                 Green turtle and leatherback nesting trends continue in a positive direction.
   Loggerhead nest numbers in 2008 were higher than in 2007 (see graph), but
this increase did not reverse the long-term declining trend that has occurred               Annual Total Nest Counts for Loggerhead Sea
between 1998 and 2008. An updated analysis of Florida's long-term                           Turtles on 27 FL Index Beaches, 1989-2008
loggerhead sea turtle nesting data reveals that nest counts have decreased 41
percent during this 10-year period. The study was conducted as part of the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's (FWC) Index Nesting
Beach Survey.
   Nest counts for green turtles and leatherback turtles in Florida show an
opposite trend from loggerhead turtles over the same period. Fewer nests for
both of these species were recorded in 2008 than in 2007, but this did not
change the long-term increasing trends. In 2007, the number of green turtle
and leatherback nests on index beaches was the highest since the trend-
monitoring program began in 1989. These two species nest on many of the
same beaches in Florida as the loggerhead, but in much smaller numbers
