February 1, 2005 -- TALLAHASSEE ? Governor Jeb Bush and the Florida
Cabinet today voted to add 17,302 acres to the Northwest Florida
Greenway. An initiative to conserve an area roughly 10 miles wide by 100
miles long stretching from Gulf and Franklin counties to Eglin Air Force
Base, the public-private Greenway partnership is uniting the missions of
national defense and environmental protection.

Preserving this landscape protects habitat for wildlife and contributes
to the nation's military mission," said Department of Environmental
Protection Secretary Colleen M. Castille. "This unique collaborative
effort is a testament to the ability of governments and non-profit
organizations to join forces and provide long-term protection for
Florida's environment."

Established in November 2003, the Northwest Florida Greenway creates a
conservation corridor spanning six counties and following the flight
path of military aircraft on training and testing exercises from the
Apalachicola National Forest and the Gulf Coast to Eglin Air Force Base.
Home to five U.S. Air Force and Navy installations, the region is also a
known biological "hot spot" for wildlife and native flora supporting a
diversity of ecologically sensitive natural communities, such as black
bear habitat, estuarine tidal marshes and floodplain swamps.
