The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will host a series of public meetings statewide during the next two months to consider better options for managing and providing access to Florida's alligator resource. "These meetings will enable us to discuss and receive additional feedback regarding four key areas of alligator management: public safety, recreational harvests, commercial harvests and conservation," said Harry J. Dutton, alligator management program coordinator for the FWC.
